This is number 4 of the Jonathan Shade books. This one does not disappoint. Jonathan and is crew have been recruited to go back in time to save the world . The guys are split up into three different time periods in order to accomplish this feat. Chronos and Sharon, yes Sharon, recruit them. However, all my not be as it seems. The wizard they are after has split himself into three. He after objects that will make him powerful. Chronos says if he accomplishes this, they will cease exist. So Jonathan and Kelly go to ancient Eygpt to kill the wizard before he can get the objects needed. They get to meet and interact with King Tut. But of course things do not go as plan. After speaking to wizard, they see possible betrayal by Sharon and Chronos. Brand and Esther have to go to the 1870, the year the wizard is born and Arana goes to the 1920's the time of the wizards death. After Kelly and Jonathan kill the wizard in ancient times, they are supposed to go to Brands time after they kill that wizard then on to the 1920's to finish the deed. Of course nothing is ever simple. Each one encounters their on problems within the time periods they have been assigned. After Jonathan and Kelly finishes their mission, not the way they thought they would, they go to Brands time period, however something has changed with Brand and Esther, not for the good. What will happen next? That is absolutely the truth. The book ends here and is continued in the next. Boy this book had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. I can't wait till the next book. I recommend series. It is fantastic. I received this book free for an honest review but it would be well worth the credit or payment.

Any additional comments?
A good followup to the previous book. We see things from multiple characters and it only draws you in further. The ending in this particular one is a cliffhanger, though you already know what's happening (While some of the character's do not.) Some odd choices, but overall, very well written.

Love this series. The books are easy to listen to, my only criticism is this book felt too short. It isn't it just a good listen and pace is kept going through every chapter.
definitely going to listen to the next instalment.

What did you like most about Anubis Nights?
Poor Jonathan Shade: for the son of wizards without any magic of his own (other than being impervious to the magic of others), he does seem to find himself having to save the world rather frequently. This time he and his companions must go back in time to stop another dead wizard from gaining immortality and changing everything as they know it. And not just once, but three times.
This book is obviously the precursor of a series within the series (this is book four) as only part of the task is here attempted, with Shade and the fearsome fighter Kelly being transported back to Ancient Egypt in search of the villainous Harry Winslow. As in book three, the story is told from the alternating perspectives of the protagonists, which not only drives the story forward but adds extra insight into the characters themselves. Although mostly concentrating on Kelly and Jonathan, the rest of the gang - Esther, Brant and Rayna, - also make welcome appearances and we learn some especially I interesting details about Esther's past which are sure to resonate in later books.
As always, the narration is superb, with Joe Hempel's adroit voicings of each protagonist such that he becomes each character he assumes at the time.
I was fortunate in being gifted a complimentary copy of Anubis Nights, via Audiobook Boom, in exchange for an honest review. My thanks as this is a fun book in a very enjoyable series, with great characters, fast paced action, quirky situations and comedy, too. Best if read in series sequence, though not totally essential.
I am looking forward to book five.
