Three Loculi Left
Thirteen-year-old Jack McKinley and his friends have fought shoulder-to-shoulder in an almost impossible mission to recover the lost Loculi hidden in the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. They have defeated the Colossus of Rhodes, visited Ancient Babylon, outfoxed legions of undead, and battled one of history's most powerful kings to recover four Loculi, but these successes have come at a price. Friends have been lost, ancient artifacts destroyed, and the very powers they've developed will soon overwhelm them. With a new threat to their mission developing, time is quickly running out to find the last of the lost Loculi.
Two Worlds Clash
When the friends unwittingly released the long-imprisoned King Uhla'ar from inside the lost Statue of Zeus, the Atlantean leader managed to escape their traps, kidnap Aly, and travel back through a rift in time and space with a Loculus in hand. With a key piece to the puzzle missing, the balance of magic has been thrown off and the lost continent has become unstable. The Select's only chance to save their friend and the world is to finish their quest now.
One Hope Remains
The Select set off on a final, epic adventure to the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus and the Lighthouse of Alexandria--in order to unearth the last missing Loculi. Only then can they dare go back through the rift to save Aly, defeat King Uhla'ar, and recover the Loculus of Strength before it's lost to time. It's a race against the end of times in the thrilling conclusion of the New York Times bestselling Seven Wonders series from master storyteller Peter Lerangis.
