Summary: THE TIDE HAS TURNED IN A BATTLE AGAINST THE FLOW OF TIME.
Life in ancient Egypt couldn’t be better. The statues now have freedom of movement and the people have comfort in knowing that the evil God Seth has been defeated. It is the Season of Ahket and celebrations are in full swing as they party towards its exciting climax. The annual flood of the Nile River will bring another year of prosperity. But, as day breaks the celebrations take a totally unexpected turn. Hapi, the Nile God, mysteriously disappears and with him so does the Nile. Egypt without the Nile spells disaster and to make things even worse, the mysterious events are already impacting the future.
Desperate to reverse the devastating curse that has been cast, the Alliance of the Gods call on the help of JJ, Linc and Rani. Having already saved ancient Egypt once before, these heroes from the future must travel back in time to do it again. With help from new and old friends they embark on a new quest that is a frantic race against the flow of time, to conquer an evil force that has an old score to settle.
Danger lurks at every turn as they try to solve the mystery and battle against those who want to see them fail. As time flows by it is running out fast. If they fail it will change history – if they succeed it will preserve it.
The Cursed Nile is an epic battle where the past has the power to change the future, and the future has the power to change the past. Which one will triumph?

About The Author
S.W. Lothian is a funny and cool guy from Australia. His kids call him ‘Phil Dunphy’, because he reminds them of the dad from Modern Family. He isn’t sure whether this is a compliment or not, but he takes it as a compliment.
As an imaginative kid he dreamed of creating exciting worlds and funky characters. He loved watching all those classic cartoons on TV – Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Road Runner (surely, Coyote would win one day), Wacky Races, and so on. All he wanted to do was to create cool characters and stories by hand. 25 years later, the long-held dream to create erupted like a jam donut in a microwave and S.W. started writing children’s fiction for kids. Perhaps his awesome stories will become so popular that they will be animated one day?!
When he writes, it’s for his kids. He writes stories to excite them, inspire them, and teach. Stories with awesome edge-of-your-seat action and adventure scattered with fun. Stories that let adults remember the dreams of their own childhood. His dream has evolved over the years, from superstar cartoonist – to corporate soldier – to proud parent – to children’s writer. In his wildest dreams, his books will be extremely successful. However, it’s one step at a time. A waterfall starts with a trickle; he hopes his books are his waterfall.
S.W. is currently working on the third novel in The Quest Series: The Fallen Pharaoh, expected to be completed in 2013.
