The Lost Curse

byT. Lynn Adams (Goodreads Author)


Overview from Goodreads:

Easing his pace, Jonathon advanced only inches at a time. Instinct heightened beneath unseen eyes and he knew he moved in the presence of a creature that could kill him. As he progressed forward, his light caught a presence to his left… a human presence. The dark image startled him and Jonathon whirled to face the threat, the beam of his headlamp cutting into the darkness
Jonathon’s had more than enough adventure for one lifetime. That’s why he’s planning to spend this summer camping in quiet central Utah with his Peruvian friend, Severino. But when the two of them accidentally discover an ancient artifact, they wind up in more danger than ever!
Now Jonathon, Severino, and their new friend, Tallie, will have to choose between protecting a secret that’s been hidden for centuries or saving their own lives!
A perfect combination of action, thrills, suspense, and a hint of romance, this is a cover-to-cover adventure that you simply can’t miss. Join forces with this dynamic trio of teens as they delve deep into the mysteries of the past. An entertaining read that’s sure to keep you guessing.

My Thoughts
This was a well written book. I felt the author must have done allot of research on the subject of ancient artifact theft and the Paiute culture. This information was nicely mixed in with an adventurous tale.

I enjoyed all of the main characters. Tallie is strong willed and independent. Severino is quiet and observant. Jonathon is is kind-hearted and funny. All three seem for mature for their age and make good decisions.

In doing a little checking on the author, I discovered that her first book, Tombs of Terror, also involved Jonathon and Severino. I got the feeling at the end of The Lost Curse, there could maybe be another book that would involve this trio. I may be wrong, but I sure hope not!

I would like to thank Netgalley and Cedar Fort Publishing for allowing me to read the ARC for my unbiased review.
