Description of this Book

Join two brave heroes on one incredible treasure hunt through the most exciting moments in history. The first book in a new time-travelling series - perfect for fans of Beast Quest. When ten-year-old Tom accidentally smashes a statue in a museum he releases Isis, a young Egyptian princess who has been imprisoned for thousands of years, along with her mummified moggy, Cleo. Isis desperately wants to break the curse and enter the afterlife, otherwise she'll be trapped between worlds forever. The trio must track down six amulets on a thrilling treasure hunt through time - coming face-to-face with Gladiators, Knights, Greeks, Vikings, Pirates and Egyptian Mummies! Tom and Isis arrive in Ancient Rome where their fighting skills are put to the test as they are forced to train as gladiators. A riddle from Isis's magical scarab reveals that the first amulet is hidden within the shield of a fierce gladiator hero. Getting their hands on the shield will be dangerous but, as the next terrifying battle gets closer, Tom and Isis are running out of time . Join Tom and Isis on their action-packed journey through history as they search for the hidden treasure and try to break the ancient curse.
