The Stone Warriors is the fourth volume in Michael Northrop’s five-book Tombquest series. After a brief period of time in Vienna, the bulk of this book takes place back in Egypt, where Alex and his friend Ren try to keep the Lost Spells out of the hands of the Death Walkers and The Order while also trying to find Alex’s mother.

Unlike Valley Of Kings, I didn’t see the major plot twist coming until a page or two before it actually happened. I also thought the main villain in this volume was incredibly creepy and disgusting.

I gave The Stone Warriors five stars on Goodreads – this time, it didn’t need rounding to get that fifth star. I’ve already started the concluding book of the series, The Final Kingdom. I’ll post the review here in a few days.
