I have a 13-year-old son who is a huge fan of all of Rick Riordan's series and of THE BEYONDERS and he loved this book and has read it three or four times. Great characters, interesting story, kept both of our attention! I also read it out loud to my 10-year-old son who stayed very engaged. It encouraged him to do some online research about the Dead Sea Scrolls and about Israel in general. Great read.
My kids and I all enjoyed this book!
I love how the author let's us know what is going on in the heads of all the characters. I can't wait to meet her next batch of characters.
I loved this book!
The Caves of Qumran has everything - history,mystery, intrigue, suspense, betrayal - and even a bit of romance thrown in. Miss Wilson has a way of describing scenes and characters that the reader can totally relate to, which makes it a really fun read for anyone. A couple times I even laughed right out loud at her clever humor. I highly recommend this book!
An ancient Essene relic is missing...
Maylee Tayten doesn’t live in Israel. She didn’t know the Dead Sea or a place called Qumran even existed. Now, she’s risking her life and the lives of her loved ones to find a missing artifact and track down a murderer.
Along with her brother, Smith, and the attractive Israeli teen Rafi, Maylee unravels a 2,000 year-old mystery and discovers a team of international thieves who want to keep it all a secret.
Pressed for time and without many resources, their quest for the Queen leads them through the streets of Jerusalem to the
waters of the Dead Sea. But to succeed, they will have to do more than solve the mystery.
The trio must get the treasure back, pull off a
nearly impossible disguise, and avoid getting killed along the way…
“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was.” - Ernest Hemingway
"... a thrilling and modern historical fiction that will keep you on the edge of your seat!"
