      Whew, what a ride When I first stated reading this, I hadn t read the first book, Jake Ransom and the Skull King s Shadow I found it confusing, and kind of didn t want to even read it after that But I d won it on GoodReads thanks , so I felt responsible for finishing and reviewing it.Well I am so happy I stuck with this I bought the first book and read it, so this one made a LOT sense after that This should seriously be made into a movie I d watch it, for sure Jake Ransom and his older sister, [...]

      James Rollins is building an interesting world in this young adult series Even an old young adult like myself loves this stuff.Jake and Tandy Ransom are the children of two archaeologists who disappeared three years before, presumed murdered by bandits while on a dig The two kids always hoped differently and learn they were probably right.They get drawn back in time through a Mayan pyramid to the super continent of Pangea and a valley called Calypsos where they find lost tribes of humans Mayans, [...]

      Anyone who considered me erudite has now been proven wrong Action adventure children s books gotta love them You ve got all the stock characters relatable everyboy main character Jake, annoying older sister Kady, comic relief Pindor, love interest Marika, et al But they do manage to move outside of being mere placards, not enough so that they re very deep characters, but enough to lend the story some substance Nefertiti was somewhat annoying, but she shaped up in the end I m looking forward to o [...]

      Secondo e ultimo appuntamento con le avventure di Jack Ransom Almeno per ora Sia mai che all autore non venga lo schizzo di continuare la serie Comunque, nonostante le lacune del primo volume a causa di tutto l ambaradan di roba che Rollins ci aveva buttato dentro, devo dire che questa lettura stata inaspettatamente piacevole.La storia pi lineare, c molta pi azione e nuovi misteri si aggiungo al mazzo.Oltretutto la vicenda sar interamente ambientata in un Antico Egitto alternativo ricordiamoci c [...]

      What to say, what to say It s no secret I m a huge fan of both James Rollins and YA literature and this book marries those two things, so it should be a winner In some aspects it certainly is I love the ways Rollins takes actual parts of history and science and weaves them into a story with his own theories and creations This book is the second in a series and I love the basic plot of the tale Jake and his sister Kady get sucked into an ancient lost part of Pangea, their parents are missing are [...]

      3.5 again, but because it didn t advance much of the back story of the mystery of his parents disappearance or much about Jake.Likes Jake s friends were pulled along with him, and loved Pindor s embarrassing appearance Egyptian flying boats Pindor s crush on Nefertiti time stones prophesy messages Kree and his eye tattoo was a great villain with Heka aiding him the dinosaurs, the sand sharks and harpies were cool monsters prisoners in the dungeon were a pleasant surprise Jake s new petDislikes [...]

      This was an action packed young adult adventure story that got the action starting immediately The premise was truly intriguing and I enjoyed listening to it However, I m going to say something I don t say often You really must read this series in order There were a lot of references to events that happened in book one that this plot relies heavily on However, even missing chunks of information because I started with book 2, of course , I still enjoyed everything that happened and will definitel [...]

      Fantasy in novels is okay But a book should not appear to be children s book because of all the childish fantasies that grown ups would find hard to digest.Ancient Egypt had lots of secrets Agreed But to say that pyramids are as old as the Raptors is stretching it a bit too far Then to add the magic of Atlantis to the equation makes it further far fetched But its okay Jake Ransom, the hero, is in his early teens At that age he could be excused to imagine anything he wants.The book is better than [...]

      Jake Ransom is a suspenseful book that has twists and betrayal at every turn This is a riproaring adventure, especially for those who have read the previous book, Jake Ransom and the Skull King s Shadow There is heartbreak, humor, and adventure in every page of this book I couldn t put the book down and read it whenever I had the chance James Rollins, the author,keeps you on your toes so you can t predict what will happen next in this amazing book I would definitely recommend this book to anyone [...]

      Just as the first book of the series, this was a great adventure to enjoy Although it is intended for younger readers, it is still enjoyable for any reader As I mentioned on my review on the preceding book, Jake Ransom, and the Skull King s shadow, I do enjoy reading a lighthearted PG rated books once in awhile, for both purposes of writing and also it is refreshing to read a book that is focused mostly on the entertainment aspects of the story telling, rather than just the shock value I definit [...]

      Excellent second novel in the Jake Ransom series The young hero travels again to mysterious land, this time to find an Egyptian tribe lost in a prehistoric desert Rollins uses his skills of a thriller author to create a complex and mysterious plot, which thrills the reader Jake is a very likeable young hero and Kalverum becomes and terrifying as a villain Highly recommended for fans of adventurous YA novels.

      I loved it It was fast moving and got me hooked right from the beginning I liked all the twists and turns that kept me wondering right up until the end And I loved the wisling vote is for Hissler It was nice seeing charactors from the previous book, like meeting old friends I m looking forward to the next trip to Pangaea As usual, I don t want to spoil it for others so I m keeping this short I will be recommending this to all of the people I know who love adventures.

      This is the second book of the Jake Ransom series This book was not as good as the first, but it was by far not the worst book I have read The story was not as clever as the first which added to it not being as good The writing was still elegant, as before and the creativeness of the writer was still there, just not as distinct as before The author seemed to not have another astonishing story to tell, which is why this one was not as good Another reason the book was not as good was the fact that [...]

      I don t really know what are my thoughts on this book I believe this is a very good book but I have forgotten half of the story even though I ve just finished it I think I didn t give my all into concentrating reading this book as I have a lot of disturbance while reading this at work I might give the book a chance in the future and reread it properly But I like Jake, Jake is a great character Smart boy.

      A very good book, and much better than the first in the series The action sped up so that I was able to really focus on the book and read straight through it.

      Last year 2015 brought with it many surprises in the literary world While there were some shockingly bad and or boring books I had to slog my way through, for the most part most of the surprises came on the good side of the spectrum None the so than James Rollins s young adult oriented Jake Ransom and the Skull King s Shadow Though I m almost 20 years older than the target demographic of the intended audience, the first Jake Ransom novel was, unexpectedly, a ton of fun to read and, though it la [...]

      The book, Jake Ransom And The Howling Sphinx by James Rollins, is about a boy named Jake Ransom and his sister, Kady They lost their parents while they were doing an archaeological dig in South America They are trying to find them as they travel through time itself I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read mystery, fiction, or adventure novels The ending was interesting because it gave clues as to what the next book was going to be about For example, in the previous book, at the ve [...]
