When Jon, a precocious and adventurous 14-year-old boy, encounters a sphinx on a class trip to the museum, little does he know that his life is about to change forever. Four and half thousand years ago, in ancient Egypt, an evil sorcerer captured Neb, the king’s magician, and imprisoned his soul in this sphinx. The sphinx now tells Jon his story and enlists Jon’s help to release Neb’s soul from its stony prison. The sphinx whisks Jon away in the dead of night to ancient Egypt, and Jon is thrown into a world of mystery, sorcery, and adventure.
Jon must overcome his fears, outwit Neb’s enemies, and battle evil forces to discover the identity of the sorcerer who imprisoned Neb’s soul in the stone sphinx, there to remain forever. But when Jon’s plan to uncover the villain unravels and everything seems hopeless, Jon has to find the strength and resolve to vanquish his crafty enemy. Does Jon have what it takes to find the evil sorcerer and uncover the secret that keeps Neb’s soul imprisoned in the sphinx?
Enter the magical world of ancient Egypt in The Secret of the Sphinx.
Samuel Bavli was interested in writing since he was a young boy. Language and story-telling were second nature to him. His father was a poet and professor of literature; and as a boy, Sam loved to write poems and short stories. For inspiration, he used his knowledge of history and ancient civilizations. His colorful characters were based on historical and Biblical figures, and on heroes portrayed in the myths of the Greeks, Norse, and Egyptians. Sam is currently a medical doctor, but his love of writing has never been stronger. The Secret of the Sphinx is his first novel. It is a middle grade time-travel adventure to ancient Egypt.
