Jay and Lila and their archaeologist father, Dr. Cooper, enter the tombs of Anak in search of a missing coworker. Instead, they stumble onto a village where the people follow a bizarre religion. These Anakim people believe that Anak Ha-Raphah is their god and will destroy them if he becomes angry. And Dr. Cooper's meddling in the tombs has angered the god. But Dr. Cooper is not afraid. He must discover what became of his coworker and no false religion will stop him.
Peretti is a genius storyteller. Even adults would enjoy these Cooper Kids Adventure classics that follow Dr. Cooper and his children as they explore this planet for history that proves the Bible is fact. As always, Peretti writes fast-paced, scary stories of good vs. evil. I enjoyed watching this mystery unfold. If you've never read a Cooper Kids book, I highly recommend them for readers ages 10 to adult.
CMR4 Stars Out Of 5March 6, 2009CMRIt's and intresting story, but the same thing seems happens over and over. Plus, Jay and Lila don't seem as smart as they do in the other books I've read. The story is very unreal, but it makes sense and definitely keeps you intrest.It's not scary and there is a suprise near the end!
abbie5 Stars Out Of 5January 31, 2009abbieThis was my second favorite of the Cooper Kids Adventures, but it was the one book that scared me the most. So I recommend not letting 10 or younger read it cause I got really scared but other than that its a GREAT book!
Donna Rasmussen5 Stars Out Of 5January 30, 2009Donna RasmussenI just finished getting the rest of the books in this series. My daughter (7) loves these books. Each chapter leaves her at a cliff hanger and she just can't wait till the next! She will start this book next week.
Christa5 Stars Out Of 5May 5, 2008Christathis book was great! It is NOT too scary, it is awesome!! I love this book. I bet the reason those people thought is was too scary for their kids is because their kids are to young for these books. They are better for teenagers than for young kids. I read lots of Peretti's books. This is one of my favorites!!! :}
