Repeating History: Book One
Both Aston and Grant have a talent for finding trouble—it’s what landed them at the Stanton School for Boys—but this time, their mischief might send them to a completely different world.
When they accidentally destroy their teacher’s priceless archaeological artifacts, he demands they replace them. And since the teacher in question is Merlin, refusing isn’t an option for the two boys. Thanks to Merlin’s magic, they’re about to become time travelers.
The first piece on their list is the Eye of Ra, a mystical amulet belonging to the young King Tut. Ancient Egypt is nothing like Aston and Grant expected, with its war, disease, and lack of modern technology. To survive, they must befriend King Tut and learn to trust him—and each other. In a primitive world, where death and danger wait around every corner, one thing is clear: revisiting history could cost someone their life.

This was actually a very interesting read. I was skeptical because I am not really one for historical times but this is one of those books that will actually suck you in and leave you wanting more.
Dakota Chase did an excellent job of making history interesting, which says a lot since history was my least favorite subject in school. So to say I was impressed by how interesting this read was is saying something.
What happens when two men/boys who have never met previously meet by pure coincidence when they are both learning their fate only to be thrown together again when they get to the school they was ordered to attend? Well let’s just say that sparks start flying and so do fists and it is not the good kind of sparks. It is the hot fiery sparks that destroy everything in its path.
Unfortunately for both Aston and Grant, or maybe fortunately depends on the way you look at it, the office they set on fire belonged to none other than Merlin. Yes that is right, the Merlin. And everything that was destroyed in the fire, well let’s just say that Merlin was none to happy about all his precious possessions going up in flames.
Merlin decides instead of turning the two boys into the headmaster and police he has another plan for them to right their wrongs. Grant and Aston are about to be thrown into the most graphic history lesson of their lives.
Can Grant and Aston get through their punishment without being killed or killing one another? Can these two boys learn to work together to complete their mission and if so what will happen once they have completed it.
This was truly an exciting read. There is action, adventure, mystery, and so much more involved in this book. It is one of those books that will suck you in and leave you wanting more when you are done. I am truly excited about reading the next book in this series when it comes out. It was a great read.
