From the Back Cover
Thirteen-year-old Jack McKinley has fought impossible odds to save himself, his friends, and the world. Having already defeated the Colossus of Rhodes, hunted through Ancient Babylon, and outfoxed legions of undead, the Select have recovered three of the lost Loculi hidden in the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, only to lose one of them in order to save a life. They must now find a way to undo what has been done, to save themselves from the power that will overwhelm them—and destroy the world.
Not only do Jack and his friends have to unearth these seven ancient wonders, but they also have to contend with the Massa, an organization bent on using the Loculi for evil. The Massa have taken over the Karai Institute and convinced former friend Marco to switch sides. Outnumbered, underequipped, and growing weary, Jack, Cass, and Aly come upon their greatest challenge yet—the long-lost Statue of Zeus.
As the clock runs out, our heroes must confront gods, relive old battles, and face down their own destiny. Old enemies become new friends and sudden victories turn to certain defeats as the time nears for everything to change. The stakes grow impossibly high in this latest adventure from master storyteller Peter Lerangis.

My only complaint is that they are quick reads with loooooooong months between books being published. I've read many series, and this one, Harry potter, and David Eddings' Belgeriad are the ones that caused the most anxiety in w
aiting and excitement on day of publishing.
I'll let others tell you the plot and offer spoilers - I prefer simply to leave this review saying I really like these books, and have enjoyed them immensely, and am very annoyed that I have to wait for the next one.
Disclosure: I do know the author. But I write reviews based on my appreciation for the art, not the artist.
