A week ago, 13-year-old Jack McKinley was a normal kid leading a normal life - totally unaware that he was about to die. He's cursed with a genetic abnormality that's giving him amazing powers too quickly for his body to handle. Jack's only hope: Find the seven lost Loculi that were hidden in the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World by the last prince of Atlantis. Only they contain the magic to save him - and the world.
After unearthing the first Loculus and defeating the Colossus of Rhodes, Jack and his friends are in worse shape than when they first set out. Marco has disappeared without a trace, along with the first Loculus. With no time to spare and no one else to turn to, Jack and the gang have no choice but to follow the only clues they have and to head off on the next leg of their epic quest - to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon!

Yes and have. Kept my kids engaged and on the edge of their seat.
I was shocked when Marco went against the group.
I loved the way he changed his voice for each character.
Yes - I was shocked to discover the group was betrayed
My sons love this series. Quietest car ride ever. Kids ask to listen to the book to and from school everyday. Thank you Peter Lerangis for making this mom's life easier for an hour each day.
Yes, though I know to cringe anytime "Nirvana" speaks. That is the only exception to an otherwise good reader.
The battle between Marco and the Mishy Shoo Shoo is quite an experience.
The reader is consistent. Characters do not change throughout the reading.
The audience can figure out the ends big secret long before the characters do. The moment I realized what was coming was a big moment.
