Product description


"Ancient history and fantasy mingle in Sons of the Sphinx. In a series of short, fast-paced chapters, Carpinello takes this fairly standard YA fare and makes something very lively and sometimes quite touching out of it.
Recommended for fans of historical YA." Historical Novel Society

"Sons of the Sphinx is an engaging work of fiction that incorporates many fascinating historical facts that are skillfully intertwined within the pages of a truly terrific read.  Sons of the Sphinx comes highly recommended and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval." Literary Classics

"Cheryl Carpinello is a very talent writer that has you living the lives of these characters as you’re reading this story, you can almost smell the spices or the perfume that's in the air or feel the sun on your skin will traveling through the desert." An Amazon Review

"...Sons of the Sphinx is a riveting madcap ride through a fascinating time in Ancient Egypt’s history. Readers meet not only King Tut but his controversial father, King Akenhaten, and his famous stepmother, Queen Nefertiti. Insights are given into ancient life, and Egyptian mythology is explored. Best of all, the story is both fun and educational." An Amazon Review

"A definitely different take on Egyptian lore and when a long dead pharahor makes an appearance in a young high school girl's room, she's really not ready for what comes next. It was a quick read with some humor and sarcasm in a good way(of course)." An Amazon Review

"CROSSING THE SANDS OF TIME—The author has done a marvelous job of negotiating the disputed points of this era and woven them into a seamless time travel historical adventure for middle grade, teen readers and adults. Her characters are well-developed and manage to appear authentic in both the ancient and modern time periods." An Amazon Review


Product Description

"I don't see dead people. I hear them. I talk to them. Boy, you should try that. Talk about people looking at you like you've got two heads. That will do it."

Travel back to 1330 BC Egypt--When15-year-old Rosa agrees to help the ghost of King Tut find his lostqueen Hesena, she doesn't count on falling for him. Once back in Ancient Egypt, Rosa discovers that finding Hesena is not all she must do and is not as easy as she thought it would be, even though she carries part of that lost queen in her soul. She must also keep out of the reach of the living Horemheb--who crosses mortal boundaries using Seth's evilmagic--if she is to stay alive to make it back home.
