Some secrets are meant to be buried. Julie Gerber isn't thrilled to be pulled out of school her senior year to follow her parents halfway around the world to unearth a lost pyramid. However, when the cute British guy and the mysterious financier of their project both fight for her attention, things start to get interesting. The pharaoh known as Djedefre was cursed for the murder of his eldest brother. The work of the archaeologists brings new secrets to light, ones that prove the fallen god-king wasn't the villain history had painted him to be. Can they prove his innocence? As the team digs deeper into the mystery, members of the party vanish or end up dead. Someone is determined to keep the truth hidden at all costs, even 4,500 years later. 

The 411 by Maria:

Imagine you find out that the 4,500 year old mystery surrounding a pharaoh named of Djedefre has something to do with you. This is exactly what happens to Julie Gerber as she reluctantly joins her archaeologist parents on a dig.  Lucky for this teen she finds herself between two handsome boys. Flynn the Brit and son of her parents colleague and sexy Omar, the wealthy young man who is funding this dig. 

Julie is a likeable character that teens and adults will enjoy reading about AND the sexual tension, history, romance, murder, mystery and even Vampires doesn't hurt either! 

This was a fantastic journey that had me in the dark until the last few chapters. 

Wonderful YA Paranormal book for this Summer.
