Prometheus High 2: The Books of the Dead




All aboard the airship Atet and full steam towards the ancient pyramids of Giza in the second hugely inventive, action-packed, fun and quirky – and occasionally dark – adventure in the Prometheus High series!

A frantic rooftop race.
Alchemy lessons on a zeppelin.
A booby-trapped pyramid . . .
Just the start of semester two at Prometheus High.

Athena and Marceline are on a mission to unearth Marceline's past - if their foolhardy plans don't get them expelled or killed.

Godfrey's lonely without his friends, so when Emily needs a favour he's eager to help. But is her request all that it seems?

Meanwhile, on the airship Atet, an ancient monster of unsurpassed power and fury is about to awaken . . .

Praise for Prometheus High 2: The Books of the Dead

A wonderfully fast paced adventure . . . Full of Egyptian mythology and science readers will not be disappointed in this sequel as we once again delve into the lives of the students at Prometheus High.

Sarah Custance, Storylinks

This book is a little gory, a little funny, and a lot exciting, beginning with a rooftop chase and only getting more and more dangerous.
