There’s no rest for the weary! Fresh off of a victorious treasure hunt and rescue mission in South America, Addison Cooke just can’t seem to steer clear of rogue bandits, pesky booby traps, and secret treasure troves lined with gold. Such is the life of a junior archaelogist. Yet when you’re in pursuit of the legendary lost tomb of Genghis Khan, you have to expect a challenge or two.
Just as reliably as Addison attracts adventure, his aunt and uncle attract kidnappers! This time they find themselves becoming the pawn in a Chinese gang’s plan to steal the Khan’s most prized possession, his golden whip. When a third player enters the race, a Russian gang intent on nabbing the goods and exacting revenge for what happened with the treasure of the Incas, Addison and his friends find themselves once again caught in the middle, trying to rescue his family and stop the treasure from falling into the wrong hands.
Complete with a cast of funny, kid-friendly characters reminiscent of The Goonies, and a quest to discover ancient secrets that calls to mind Indiana Jones and James Patterson’s Treasure Hunters, Addison strikes gold once again in his second adventure.
Addison Cooke is back with the same wit and charm from the first book! This time, Addison and his ragtag team of New Yorkers are arriving in China, fresh from an adventure across South America. When the A & U are captured once again, this time to be used in a plot to raid the infamous Genghis Khan's tomb, it's up to Addison and his friends to save the the A & U, save the tomb of Genghis Khan - and, of course, survive to tell the tale.
This thrilling sequel gives a spell binding tale of mystery, Russian mafia out for revenge, dangerous but friendly Chinese triads, and of course the witty, life-saving charm of Addison Cooke. despite the whole save-a-precious-tomb-from-ruthless-criminals element, I think it's Addison's natural wit that kept me laughing form literally the title of the first chapter to almost the very end (the end is super mysterious and kinda sad). This adventurous novel, written for both boys and girls, left me hungry for more. - Noor
