    1. Alguien: Isa, estudiaste Periodismo, ¿verdad?Isa: SíAlguien: Ohhh, ¿y cuál fue la asignatura que más te gustó? Isa: Pues eh, ¿qué te digo yo? Jajaja, las optativas. Alguien: o.OIsa: Sí, sí, vi cosas sobre las religiones orientales, el budismo, hinduísmo también vi la mitología nórdica, griega, romana, japonesa, egipcia, sumeria. ¡Eran lo máximo! Y eso, señoras y señores, es la razón por la que adoro los libros que sacan mi vena de amante de la mitología y las culturas antigua [...]

    2. 3 STARS!!!I'm going to be honest, though this was fun and had a lot of action I kept falling asleep during it and I know it had a lot to do with me being sick but even now as I'm better I still knocked out a few times while reading this. I was really hoping I'd love the heck out of it, but it was a good read, nothing spectacular or amazing. Would I recommend it? yeah, for something short and quick. I'm not sure I'll be reading the rest of the series, but if they have them at my library I'll give [...]

    3. 2.5توقع داشتم قوی تر باشه. شخصیت پردازیش ضعیف بود. پرسی جکسون پراخت به غایت قوی تری داشت. اساطر و خدایان پرسی هم خیلی بهتر و جالب معرفی شدن اما توی این مجموعه لااقل جلد اول زیاد به خدایان و اساطیر اشاره ای نمی شه و از نیمه ی کتاب صرف یسری حوادث پی دیپی و پشت سر هم هست

    4. 3,5 y no hay mucho que decir.Es una historia entretenida y que de seguro me hubiese emocionado mucho leer cuando tuviese 14 años.Muchas de la cosas que pasa son muy inverosímiles, incluso para una lectura infantil. Aún así debo admitir que lo disfruté por lo puntual que es. Es refrescante leer este tipo de historias de vez en cuando. Cuando lo empecé a leer no pude evitar hacer una semejanza con Percy Jackson pero nada que ver. Percy definitivamente está a otro nivel.Sin embargo, es un EX [...]

    5. Nuestro personaje principal es Alex, un niño peculiar y con serios problemas de salud que ningún doctor ha podido descifrar y mucho menos curar. Su madre es una egiptóloga del Museo Metropolitano de Nueva York y Alex pasa la mayoría de su tiempo ahí junto a su mejor amiga Ren (cuyo padre trabajaba con la mamá de Alex). La "novedad" en el museo (por llamarla de alguna manera) era la llegada de unos papiros extraños con el nombre "El libro de los muertos" que Alex y Ren logran ver sólo una [...]

    6. Reseñado en mi blog Nanny BooksEl libro de los muertos es la primera novela de la saga Tombquest, tiene una preciosa edición en tapa dura con ilustraciones y una historia ágil y cautivante.Álex ha estado toda su vida afectado por una extraña enfermedad que le causa dolores crónicos. Nadie sabe exactamente qué es. Pero eso no le impide recorrer el Museo en donde trabaja su madre. Allí tiene una amiga, Ren, que no lo juzga por su lento caminar. Y una obsesión por la exposición de reliqui [...]

    7. This is definitely a book for kids. The quality of description is fair to poor. The dialogue is weak. The plot is inventive, but at the edge of ridiculous. I mean really, a boy who just about died (was dead for two minutes in the hospital) is allowed to participate in a dangerous series of exploits that require a lot of physical strength, stamina, and mental stability. He has recently "lost" his mother, and is in the care of a stranger who knowingly puts the boy and his young female friend in ha [...]

    8. I was so impressed I listened to the whole tale with my editor's hat on, waiting for a book party foul: none detected. If someone asked what to study in this age range, I'd recommend this. It does a massive amount of work at breakneck speed when origin tales often bog down. Granted, I can't much comment on emotional aspect or content choice, since I wasn't reader-listening, I did notice there was an X-files swap of Alex as the feeling character, and Ren as the logic type. Lot's of payoffs wit [...]

    9. Ay, si me hubiera cogido este libro con 11-14 años, lo hubiera disfrutado sobremanera. Aun así, me ha encantado, por que todo el tema mitológico de Egipto me fascina, y ha sido toda una aventura un poco al estilo Percy Jackson pero más infantil. Los protas jovencillos y el ritmo rápido y sin apenas descripciones o detalles más elaborados, a estas alturas, me impide disfrutarlo en su totalidad. Pero tiene buena materia prima para encantar a todos los que se acerquen por primera vez al mundo [...]

    10. El libro de los muertos nos trae una aventura llena de acción, magia y peligros adentrándose en la civilización egipcia de manera brillante. Un libro que desde lo más pequeños a los mayores puede disfrutar.Reseña completa: letraslibrosymas.

    11. Un libro divertido, que con guuuusto le recomendaría a niños de 10-12 años :) muy del estilo de Percy Jackson, pero con una mitología de la que no había leído mucho, como es el caso de la egipcia. Quedé con el suspenso de seguir las aventuras de Ren y Álex, ¡ya veremos!

    12. Parents need to know that Book of the Dead is the first book in the multimedia TombQuest series. Kids who read the series (five books are planned) can go to the website and do their own tomb quest with a character they create. There also are places on the site to write fan fiction, interact with the author, and chat on the message boards. In this start to the history-adventure series, kids follow the story of Alex, a terminally ill boy whose mother, an Egyptologist at the Metropolitan Museum of [...]

    13. 3.5Reseña completa en: elmarcapaginasbooks.cAlex es un chico de 12 años común y corriente, que a raíz de una enfermedad no puede hacer una vida normal, no va a la escuela, no corre con otros niños, no juega con la pelota, etc, su vida se resume en estar encerrado en su casa o en su defecto, en el museo donde trabaja su madre, por suerte para él, uno de sus empleados tiene una hija llamada Ren con la que comparte una fuerte amistad.Alex cada vez esta mas enfermo, y a escondidas de su madre [...]

    14. Una historia que hubiese disfrutado mucho más siendo un poco más joven, pero aun así la disfrute. El personaje de Alex tiene mucha influencia por Indiana Jones, y Ren sirve de dos formas, para dar humor y es la fiel acompañante de Alex, y es por eso que espero que el los siguientes títulos de la saga ella libere su potencial. Sobre la mitología en sí, le falta mucho, pero mucho, aunque cabe la posibilidad de que mejore más. En pocas palabras en un historia entretenida, fácil de leer y d [...]

    15. *2.5*Seguramente si lo hubiera leído muchos años atrás me hubiera gustado más. Y no es que me haya gustado poco solo porque es una historia infantil, sino que sentí era bastante aburrido aun siendo infantil. Tienes elementos interesantes, pero creo que el hecho de que un libro sea para un público más "simple" no tiene que hacer que la historia sea tan sosa como esta. Puntuación neutral para el comienzo de una saga que no creo seguir.

    16. TombQuest was a very interesting book to read. The book always left me wanting to read more. The way Alex learns about his mom’s secret life and where he is from leaves me guessing about what else he doesn’t know. His journey to find the Lost Spells and his mother is full of action and mysteries. I recommend this book to anyone that loves non-fiction and magic. This story is also a little informative on the Egyptian culture. Alex is using his mom’s ancient scarab to fight the Death walker [...]

    17. Review also appeared on my blog: Book Addict 24-7I received a copy via my job in exchange for an honest reviewBook of the Dead by Michael Northrop is a fun middle grade novel set in New York City. Though definitely not a mind-twister or a head scratcher, Northrop's latest novel (and first novel in a soon-to-be series) is a lot of fun and slightly reminiscent of other adventurous books that deal with mythology, yet with a unique and curious twist. Alex, the protagonist, is a sickly child and thou [...]

    18. Synopsis: You know that life isn’t good when you’re 12 and you’re gonna die. The doctors don’t know what disease you have and they can’t help you. That’s Alex Sennefer’s life. That is, until his archaeologist/museum curator mom (think Indiana Jones – she works for the Metropolitan Museum of Art) finds the Lost Spells of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, and uses it to bring Alex back from the dead (he had been dead for 10 seconds). Great, right? Well now a bunch of strange stuff is [...]

    19. This is the first book in the Tombquest series. This series is “designed” by the same people who worked on the Infinity Ring series and the Spirit Animals series. I have read some of the Spirit Animals books and they weren’t my favorite. However, I kept picking this book up and looking at it and finally decided to get it when I saw it at my son’s book fair at school. There are five books planned for this series and they will all be written by Northrop.Eleven year old Alex has suffered fr [...]

    20. As a newbie to children's library work, I was flung into the madness that was The 39 Clues. I read the first series and actually really enjoyed it, but I always cringe when a kid asks for one because a) they're written by different authors and b) there are approximately eleventy-billion series going on at the same time. Since then, I've tended to avoid multi-platform series, although Spirit Animals seems tempting.However, all these authors that I follow on Twitter were tweeting pics at a event [...]

    21. Alex is a sickly child who spends a lot of time at the Metropolitan Museum of Art where his mother, Dr. Baur, works as an Egyptologist. The doctors don't quite know what is wrong with him, but he has episodes, and the medicine they give him is only marginally helpful, but he has his friend Ren to hang out with while their parents are busy on a new installation. When Alex ends up being dead for two minutes, his mother invokes the Lost Spells that cure Alex, but also sets off horrific complication [...]

    22. The Book of the Dead is a wonderful adventure ride for the very beginning. Alex and Ren are friends from school. Both also have parents who work for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Alex's mom is in charge of the new Egyptian exhibit which includes the very valauable Book of the Dead.While the book is full of adventure and interesting facts about Egyptian history, there is a more important storyline with in the novel. The love of a parent for their child. Alex is sick. No one know what is wrong w [...]

    23. Wow, okay this was better than I thought it would be! I thought it was going to be some copy off of the 'Kane Chronicles' (Please tell me which came first). I highly recommend.~DESCRIPTION~ From the team that brought you The 39 Clues and Spirit Animals comes a brand new epic Egyptian adventure!Nothing can save Alex Sennefer's life. That's what all the doctors say, but his mother knows it's not true. She knows that the Lost Spells of the Egyptian Book of the Dead can crack open a door to the afte [...]

    24. Book #115 Read in 2014Tombquest: Book of the Dead (YA)This is the first book in a new YA series. Besides the book, there is a companion game that I can see kids getting into. In the book, Alex is a sickly youngster. When he takes a turn for the worse, his mother, who is a Keeper, uses the book of the dead to bring Alex back to life. But this also brings other things back to life that probably should have remained dead. Alex's mother is kidnapped so Alex, along with Ren (his best friend) try to f [...]

    25. This book had hints of the Mummy but for the younger generation. I know my nephews will have a good time reading this book. Alex and Ren are relatable characters. Even for a girl Ren is cool. I point this out because I myself had no issues with her but boys being boys who are still at the stage of girls are gross, will like her too. They will not find this a girl book but a cool book about Ancient Egypt, fighting the undead, good action, and a fast read. Another thing that I liked about this boo [...]

    26. I'll admit that the book starts in an unusual way: with the main character dying. He has been frail and sickly his whole 12 years of life. Mom brings him back to life and in good health by using newly discovered Ancient Egyptian spells and then disappearing. Did she run to escape mysterious angry Ancient Egyptian cultists; was she kidnapped by same cultists, is she still alive? And where on earth and who on earth have the ancient lost spells? Alex doesn't care a whole lot about these questions. [...]

    27. So I started this all like "yaaaay fun, adventure, middle-grade to end my evening!"And then I realized, "yaaaaay fairly accurate depiction of chronic illness, dying children, and survivors guilt!" So not what I was expecting. But good! Really exciting, very fast-paced, and good characterization. I especially love Ren. I love how she and Alex understand each other because they've both spent so much of their lives pretending to be something they're not: healthy and clever. Just all around very coo [...]

    28. TOMBQUESTBOOK OF THE DEADNothing can save Alex Sennefer's life. That's what all the doctors say, but his mother knows it's not true. She knows that the Lost Spells of the Egyptian Book of the Dead can pull her son back from the brink, but the problem? When she uses the spells, five Death Walkers are also brought back to life.An ancient evil has been unleashed. Long dead mummies are awakening. New York City is overrun by menacing scorpions. And worst of all for Alex, his mom and the Lost Spells h [...]

    29. This book begins a new series, and it's full of adventure. Egyptian magic flying around, an unstoppable mummy, and a dangerous cultist wearing a hyena's head pose lethal obstacles for the kids. Alex's best friend provides the brains, although Alex is the expert on ancient Egyptian culture. The plot is pretty straightforward and easy to follow, but the action is what will capture you. I don't think more than two chapters passed without somebody getting chased, threatened, or killed by the cultist [...]
