    This is the second book in the Children of Hathor series, but it s been long enough since I read the first one that I can safely say that it s not absolutely essential to read that one to enjoy this one All you really need to know is that American middle schooler Jason and his friends Amelia and Kevin were abducted by aliens, and Jason became the holder of a powerful talisman In this book they are once again spirited away into the realm of galactic politics and long lost talismans, but as the This is the second book in the Children of Hathor series, but it s been long enough since I read the first one that I can safely say that it s not absolutely essential to read that one to enjoy this one All you really need to know is that American middle schooler Jason and his friends Amelia and Kevin were abducted by aliens, and Jason became the holder of a powerful talisman In this book they are once again spirited away into the realm of galactic politics and long lost talismans, but as the situation worsens and the galaxy plunges toward war, Jason starts to doubt his so called allies Is he being told the truth Whose side is right It s a grand sci fi adventure, full of memorable aliens and fast paced action I look forward to seeing how Jason s story pans out

    The Hand of Osiris is a very fine sequel to the first book in the Children of Hathor trilogy It is action packed and the main characters travel to a ton of planets While the first story in this trilogy focuses on Jason retrieving the Amulon Talic, this one focuses on the next two talics Once again, these three unique children are called upon to put a stop to the evil Oruq s plans and hopefully prevent a galactic war from starting.Author Jim Mastro takes the reader on another fantastic space a The Hand of Osiris is a very fine sequel to the first book in the Children of Hathor trilogy It is action packed and the main characters travel to a ton of planets While the first story in this trilogy focuses on Jason retrieving the Amulon Talic, this one focuses on the next two talics Once again, these three unique children are called upon to put a stop to the evil Oruq s plans and hopefully prevent a galactic war from starting.Author Jim Mastro takes the reader on another fantastic space adventure with three kids at the helm Even though Kevin is the actual pilot, Jason isthe first mate to Shalan acting as captain Shalan takes over the lead role once the children finally meet up with her She has her own agenda and doesn t listen to the three kids as much as she should., So, at some point, Jason realizes that he is going to have to put his foot down and make his own demands.I was excited to think about what might happen to Jason s powers when he combines the two talics Unfortunately, I ended up being disappointed by this since Jason seemed to lose his connection to his talic, and therefore lost most of his powers Still, once the two talics were combined, Jason discovered that if he and Amelia were touching, they could sort of use use the talics Obviously, they will need to practice to get this right So, if they end up getting all three of the talics combined into the Hand of Osiris, would that mean that Jason, Amelia, and Kevin need to be touching to use it That could be very awkward in a battle.The pace of this story is quick and the book is packed with action and adventure I found that I highly enjoyed the story, but not quite as much as I liked the previous book I cannot put my finger on anything specific that was wrong or missing, except for maybe that the council was not supporting the actions of the children this time Or, maybe, it was because Londro wasn t in this story I m not really sure Still, this is a science fiction book for young readers that should not be missed by anyone that likes a grand space adventure.Overall, The Hand of Osiris is a great book and a wonderful sequel to The Talisman of Elam I had a terrific time reading it and I know that other young readers, and adult readers too, will thoroughly enjoy this series as much as I have I cannot wait to see what happens in the third and final installment of the Children of Hathor trilogy in the book The Treasure of Hathor I hope that I don t have to wait another three years for this one to come out I am ready for it now I rated this book an 8 out of 10

    On the outside, Jason Hunter was an ordinary kid with ordinary problems his parents had just moved him from sunny California, where he used to surf every day, to dreary New Hampshire, where he was stuck as far away from waves as was humanly possible He had one or two friends, he had a normal house, and normal looking parents But that s where normality ended for Jason Because while things looked fine on the surface, they certainly weren t once you lookedclosely for instance, what mothe On the outside, Jason Hunter was an ordinary kid with ordinary problems his parents had just moved him from sunny California, where he used to surf every day, to dreary New Hampshire, where he was stuck as far away from waves as was humanly possible He had one or two friends, he had a normal house, and normal looking parents But that s where normality ended for Jason Because while things looked fine on the surface, they certainly weren t once you lookedclosely for instance, what mother made her child eat cereal with blue cheese dressing instead of milk for breakfast And how many kids were being staked out by the mysterious neighbors next door And how many small towns had numerous sightings of UFOs We re not left to wonder for long, as The Talisman of Elam gets of to a rollicking start when Jason and his friends Kevin and Amelia accidentally hijack a flying saucer We re soon introduced to Shalan and Londro, aliens who explain that Jason is the hope that will unite the universe Its up to him to retrieve a relic that will save the Earth from destruction oh, and rescue his parents who have been kidnapped, and replaced with clones, of course, because really, what mother would serve her child cereal with salad dressing Book 2 of the of the series, The Hand of Osiris, gets off to an even faster start, this time with Jason and his friends being kidnapped in daylight, in a park, in full view of everyone This time Kevin and Amelia have an even bigger role in saving the day as the team hops from world to world trying to evade the bad guy and findrelics These middle grade books are great fun, full of constant action and good characters Jason, Kevin, and Amelia are a good team, but also realistic kids who are smart, sassy, and brave and I think they ll appeal to readers These books, however, are not meant for reluctant readers they are thick and the vocabulary is not for the faint hearted Even some adults would quail at a few of the words used, especially in the second book And the names of people, races, and planets while clearly based on ancient earthly civilizations in typical sci fi fashion are unpronouncable We leave Jason and his friends in a cliffhanger of course, because there is a book 3 on its way, The Treasure of Hathor, and I m looking forward to reading it.If these seem like books you d like, visit my friend Betsy s blog, where she talks about Mastro s other book and where she s giving copies away

    A very good YA SF book and a worthy successor to The Talisman of Elam Mastro does an excellent job capturing the behavior and attitudes of 12 and 13 year old kids right on the edge of becoming adults The action is quick and exciting and far from predictable The characters are well developed with multidimensional personalities none are simple and often reveal inner complexities that then get further treatment as the novel develops As in the first book, this one contains an incredibly won A very good YA SF book and a worthy successor to The Talisman of Elam Mastro does an excellent job capturing the behavior and attitudes of 12 and 13 year old kids right on the edge of becoming adults The action is quick and exciting and far from predictable The characters are well developed with multidimensional personalities none are simple and often reveal inner complexities that then get further treatment as the novel develops As in the first book, this one contains an incredibly wonderful guardian like creature, The Collector, that is wonderful to behold Were this series ever made into movies, I wonder how The Collector would be portrayed it would be pretty neat I suspect The Hand of Osiris was quite good and leaves me looking forward for the final installment I hate having to wait Good job
