Thirteen-year-old Jack McKinley has fought impossible odds to save himself, his friends, and the world. Having already defeated the Colossus of Rhodes, hunted through Ancient Babylon, and outfoxed legions of undead, the Select have recovered three of the lost Loculi hidden in the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, only to lose one of them in order to save a life. They must now find a way to undo what has been done, to save themselves from the power that will overwhelm them - and destroy the world.
Not only do Jack and his friends have to unearth these seven ancient wonders, but they also have to contend with the Massa, an organization bent on using the Loculi for evil. The Massa have taken over the Karai Institute and convinced former friend Marco to switch sides. Outnumbered, underequipped, and growing weary, Jack, Cass, and Aly come upon their greatest challenge yet - the long-lost Statue of Zeus.
As the clock runs out, our heroes must confront gods, relive old battles, and face down their own destiny. Old enemies become new friends, and sudden victories turn to certain defeats as the time nears for everything to change. The stakes grow impossibly high in this latest adventure from master storyteller Peter Lerangis.

I started reading these books because of my then 12 year old. Wanting to read what she is reading. Now I burn through them paper or electronic faster than she can.
love the narrator!
This series is a family favorite! We all get excited to download a new book. We hate stopping the car because we never want to stop listening to story.
A plus to this is our kids have learned about the Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World.
This book was amazing but did have its flaws. The main series in all ever since the first book was extremely well made. It can start slow but to the people who hang in there this action almost never dull moment book will be a blast. Some parts may be "right timing" and obvious, but besides that it's funny, full of action, almost never dull, puzzle solving madness, learn a bit about the past, twists, and much more I'm forgetting!
I was actually very into this book. I know I'm a little old for this series, but the Wife put me up to it. Book 1 - Kind of good. Books 2 and 3, not so much. But this one had me excited about the 5th. It was funny at times, it was emotional at times, and it was good for the myth buffs.
Looking forward to #5
