Monster Mash 2017 Countdown Blitz - Day 4



Sons of the Sphinx by Cheryl Carpinello


When 15-year-old Rosa agrees to help the ghost of King Tut find his lost queen Hesena, she doesn't count on falling for him.

Once back in Ancient Egypt, Rosa discovers that finding Hesena if not all she must do and is not as easy as she thought it would be, even though she carries part of the lost queen in her soul. She must also keep out of the reach of the living Horemheb—who crosses mortal boundaries using Seth's evil magic—if she is to stay alive to make it back
 home.

Snippet:


A shout from behind makes me turn. Tut is running after me, but it is not his voice that ignites the terror in my heart. It is mine screaming to old on to life.

"No. No. NO!"
The force of the explosion flings me through the air like a rag doll. By the time I pick my head up a dense cloud of dust engulfs me. Too late I cover my face.

I'm choking, can't breathe, can't see! I'm dying!
Arms encircle my chest pulling me backwards. My legs scrape painfully acress the debris-covered granite floor. Another pair of arms lifts my legs. Floating. That's what it's like. Dying is like floating on air.

My body touches solid ground. Voices, whispers really, penetrate my clogged brain. I hope this is heaven.
Without warning, I start coughing and gagging. My brain screams at me. "Fight! Breathe!"

I’m a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long past.
