The Time Hunters and the Spear of Fate by Carl Ashmore

This is the third in the Time Hunters series of books.  Like the first two, this is the tale of another adventure that Becky and Joe have with their Uncle Percy and his time travelling community.

For this story, they travel to ancient Egypt and have to find the Spear of Fate, in order to hide it from the evil Emerson Drake.

Yet again, Carl Ashmore has written a really enjoyable, fun story.  With the writing, he treats children as intelligent people, rather than writing down to them.  There are scary villains, loveable allies and Becky and Joe's characters develop even stronger.

There is a bit of a history lesson in here and I'd imagine that it will make children want to find out a bit more about some of the myths mentioned.  I'm sure if I was xx#cough#xx years younger, I'd want to find out more.

Again, another fantastic chapter from Bowen Hall.
