The story is addicting and emotionally engaging. I found that I was invested in the extremely well developed characters and and the complex plot. I could not put the book down. The story had a definite feeling of freshness to it. It felt new and refreshing. I can't get deeply into detail about why I loved Curse of The Sphinx without spoiling something or other, but I can say that I love the main characters and their struggles. I loved the sense of magic in the story, and I loved the underlying mystery that is hidden in the pages.
I am super excited and am on the edge of my seat waiting for the next installment of the series. I totally recommend Curse of The Sphinx, its an awesome read, and give it the rating of FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS!!!
