Jake Ransom and the Skull King's Shadow by James Rollins

Boy, this one takes you on a ride!

A boy and his sister (both teens) have lost their parents in archaeological accident. When they get an invite to visit an exhibit of the artifacts the parents had found, all expenses paid, they couldn't wait to go. However, maybe they should have wondered why they got all this for "free". After all, most free things cost you in some way...

They end up being transported in time, meeting dinosaurs and creatures that lived a long, long time ago, and then they find All-World. Various tribes and groups of people from Neanderthals to Mayans to Romans to Vikings to ???

Unfortunately, the Skull King is attempting to conquer that world and they get drawn into that plot, too.

Do they survive? Do they ever get back home? And why did they end up there to begin with?

I'm giving my copy away. Leave a comment here on the blog and then send me an email at and I'll enter you in the drawing.
