Jason, Julia, and Rick have crossed through the Door to Time into ancient Egypt, a land of labyrinths, riddles, and secrets. But when the passageway collapses around them, Julia ends up back at home, in the present - with the door shut tight behind her.

Now the boys are trapped in the past, and there's just one way to get back to Argo Manor. They must find the long-lost map of Kilmore Cove hidden somewhere in Egypt's Land of Punt. And to do so, they'll have to solve more puzzles left by the enigmatic Ulysses Moore.

But before long, Rick and Jason realize that they are not the only travelers from the present in search of the mysterious map. Can they be the first to find it? Download and start listening now!

    " Some of our members decided they would like to continue the Ulysses Moore series. At the end of the first book, the adventure just stops when the children arrive in Egypt. This book continues the story with plenty of action and some information about ancient Egypt. "

    " Just finished books 1 & 2 of Ulysses Moore yesterday (yes, both in the same day). Short summary: twin kids move into an old mansion that was owned for 40 years by an eccentric guy who was never seen in town. They invite over a kid to visit while their parents go back to London to finish the move. They are in the care of the housekeeper who came with the house. House has a mysterious door, they happen to find some keys and other clues and wham, they are travelling through time to ancient Egypt in end book 1, start book 2 and decide they were sent there (thanks to one kid's gut) to finish a job for Ulysses Moore. They happen to figure out the job is finding an ancient map, and in less than 24 hrs they find the ancient map that everyone's been hunting for for years and then promptly have it stolen from them by the bad lady. Oh, and in the meantime the main girl was immediately taken back to England in book 2 and with the help of the groundskeeper, has to defend the house from psycho lady's henchman. The premise of the old mysterious house and cliffside town is interesting. The writing is obviously aimed at upper elementary kids. Just given the amount of action that is supposed to have taken place in less than 24 hrs (both book 1 and book 2) and the plot conveniences. I had to keep reminding myself that so as not to get overly upset at the writing for making one kid somehow know all about history, and nature, and...let's just say he would be more realistic as a laptop or robot, but in the absence of those he is a freakishly well-informed 11 year old. I also had to remind myself that it was geared at upper elementary when the kids would have disagreements, be mad at each other for 10 sec and then make up and all was hunkeydorey. Oh, and the hints of danger that never ever get realized, like several people escaping from a pit of snakes unscathed. Even the evil henchman gets knocked off of a 30+ ft cliff onto a rocky shoreline and survives with no injuries other than a broken nose! Now don't get me wrong, I believe there is often too much violence in modern kids lit, but at the same time I don't want them thinking good guys will always make it out of situations unscathed because they are good. Bad things may happen. I also had problems with because the author can't decide if the message of the books is to "just go with your guts and your dreams" or "be wise and think things through". One kid literally makes a leap in the dark in book 1 because his gut "tells him that it will all be ok," and he makes it. Other similar situations follow in books 2. The author does let the pseudo-robot kid freak out and give them a lashing about being foolish. They get to feel bad for about 1 page, and then it turns out everything worked out and random acts of foolishnesh are all ok. Scary. Ok, so interesting premise. I would have liked to see it fleshed out more for adults. In all, an innocent romp in time travel/adventure for kids...as long as they don't go trying to jump off cliffs in the dark. "

    " Once again as I read this book, I felt that realistically, the characters should be older. They act older than 11 and they have the knowledge of teenagers. Aside from the fact that it's hard to accept these kids as 11 years old, I quite liked the book. It's great to see them succeed at solving riddles that adults haven't been able to solve. Their nemesis seems to have turned the tables on them in this installment, so I have to read the next book to find out if the kids can outwit her and recover what she has stolen from them. "

    " The 1st book was more intresting but it kept my attention the whole way. I havn't read the 3rd and I can't wait to get around to it. The second of trilogies are always hard though so I gave it a higher rating. To hold me to the series though the third one has to be better than this one. "

    " This is a GREAT series for kids who like adventure/puzzle solving stories. My grandson and I are reading the series and then discussing it. "

    " This is better than the first one.. but I thought the main characters (Jason, Julia and Rick) should be older, I don't think 11 years can do what they do (sorry kids..), Anyway can't wait to read the third book.. "

    " Sejauh ini paling suka buku kedua ini dari empat buku yang sudah kubaca walaupun, sayangnya, Julia tidak ikut berpetualang mencari peta. Lebih suka kalau mereka bertiga berkumpul. Kecewa peta yang susah-susah didapat malah jatuh ke tangan Oblivia. "

    " Pintu di Kilmore Cove membawa Jason dan Rick ke Punt, kota di era Mesir kuno, sementara Julia harus berhadapan dengan petualangannya sendiri. Jelas petualangan mereka di sini lebih seru!

    Seandainya ada pintu waktu di rumahku *sigh* hehe "
