Hall of the Golden CrocodileseBook - 2013
Aten is getting desperate. He is rapidly running out of fuel and his hopes of joining his Uncle Lucie and conquering the Universe are beginning to evaporate. Arousing the suspicions of the mighty High Priest Neferhotep has only made his task of getting into the treasure vaults of the Temple of Karnak even more difficult. It doesn't help that his travelling companions, the irrepressible teenager Luke, the timid half man/half dog Druitt, the volatile Galasian Tuy and the cheeky computer Zoom keep letting him down. Or that his secret project, the royal prince that likes to call himself Akhenaten, is not proving to be as easy to control as he had once thought. So he comes up with a plan to place Luke and his faithful friend Neferptah into the Kap, a training school for Egypt's young royal princes and nobility, in the hope that the boys will come across information that will help Aten find a way into the temple vaults and get him the gold he needs. But will this plan work after all his others have failed? Or will relying on two teenage boys and a young princess to get him where he needs to be just lead to further complications? Suitable for young adults and fantasy readers of all ages 'Hall of the Golden Crocodiles' is the second book of the Aten Sequence that sees Aten finally find his way into the vaults of Karnak Temple. But although he now so close to his goal, events rapidly spiral out of control placing his travelling companions and the young Egyptians in terrible danger. And just when he thinks that things cannot get any worse, he is confronted with someone from his past. Someone who is possibly the last person in the Universe that Aten wanted, or even expected, to have to deal with. So will Aten be able to get his gold, make his fuel and blast off to join his Uncle Lucie? Follow his adventures in 'Hall of the Golden Crocodiles' and find out what the fates have in store for our hapless hero, his ill-assorted space crew and the young royal Egyptians that he has drawn into his web.
