Time is not on his side

Benjamin Holt is interning at his fathers office during spring break. He also has what seems an impossible task--find his missing brothers. He just found out he has two other brothers and needs to find them. Then he finds a mysterious file written in ancient Lemurian with his name on it. He wonders if this might be the clue hes been looking for.

Benjamin and his friends from the Emerald Tablet alliance search throughout time and ancient civilizations to find Benjamins missing brothers. Will he be able to find them? And will time be on his side?

This is the second book in the Forgotten World series. Fast paced action keeps the reader turning the pages wanting to see if Benjamin and his friends find his brothers. Add ancient civilizations and ancient Gods. Puzzles on where Benjamins brothers could be are in every chapter. Each teen has a special ability that will help solve the clues. Whats fun is the whole idea that Gods do exist and arent always ones to trust like Apollo or even Achilles. And ambrosia isnt such a sweet drink of the Gods after all!

Fans of Rick Riordans Percy Jackson series will enjoy this fantasy as will Garth Nix fans too! My only question is how long do we have to wait for book three?
