On the last day of his beach vacation, Aki receives a mysterious text from Lilith. When he returns to Pieve Olimpia, he discovers that Lilith and her entire family seem to have vanished into thin air. Sick with worry for his friend, Aki rushes off to find Mr. Filippotti, who tells him that Lilith has gone to the parallel crystal called Atum, inhabited by the gods and mythological creatures of Ancient Egypt. It turns out that one of Lilith's recurring dreams had revealed a terrible threat is hanging over the ancient and powerful talisman known as the Eye of Horus. Aki decides to go after his friend. The Sphere of Time beams him to the Crystal of Atum right in the middle of a ferocious war among gods. Only after a series of dangerous and frightening adventures Aki will finally find Lilith and discover what is threatening the Eye of Horus.

I am so pleased by The Crystal of Atum. I love Aki and the Spheres of Time series. This book kept up the pace and action found in the previous two books and the characters were well-developed and interesting. I'm really a fan of this series andI cannot wait for the 4th book to come out. Recommended!

This is Aki’s third trip with the Sphere of Time. As usual, he ends up nowhere near the spot where he needs to be. But he must find Lilith or they may both end up stranded forever on the crystal created by the Ancient Egyptian gods. As he travels through the crystal trying to find Lilith before it’s too late, Aki is awestruck by the immensity of Ancient Egyptian constructions. At the same time, he experiences first-hand the hard life of the workers who built the pyramids. With a little help from new friends, and thanks to his wits and a couple of lucky breaks, Aki overcomes mighty monsters and warring gods to finally reach Lilith who is posing as a priestess in order to protect the sacred Eye of Horus. Although the two friends are happily reunited, the perilous journey is far from over. The Crystal of Atum is another page-turner from start to finish. In this third book, Aki matures and has become more comfortable in his identity as Heir to the Superior Beings, without sacrificing any of the personality traits that make him such an appealing character. He is still just a normal kid full of curiosity and love for adventure. Sometimes making the right choices isn’t easy, but he always does his best. Although Aki remains the clear protagonist of the series, Lilith has shed her initial shyness to take on a more assertive role as an Heir in her own right. You don’t need to have read the first two books in the Sphere of Time series to fully enjoy and understand this third installment, but then you would be missing out on some pretty awesome adventures.
