Today on my blog I have the Tut My Epic Battle To Save The World blog tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, guest post, and giveaway.
Tut: My Epic Battle to Save the World by P. J. Hoover is the second action-packed novel in a fast and funny series for young readers about the adventures of King Tut, now an immortal eighth-grader living in Washington, D.C.. This rollicking fantasy adventure begins with Tut: The Story of My Immortal Life.
Tut sets out to find his brother and protector, Gil, who has gone missing from their Washington, D.C., town house. Tut discovers that Gil is being held prisoner by the Egyptian god Apep. With the help of the Sun god, Ra, Gil managed to vanquish Apep thousands of years ago, and now the god is back for vengeance. It’s up to Tut and his friends Tia and Henry to stop Apep before he succeeds in his evil scheme to swallow the sun and plunge the world into darkness forever.
I am a huge fan of Egyptian Mythology and History so when I heard about these books I definitely needed to read them both. P.J. does a good job with putting in history but also making these books her own. I loved all the characters but especially seeing Tut as a 14 year old boy was fun and interesting. There is plenty of action, adventure, some romance, and great world building. I can't wait to read more from P.J. Hoover in the future. 4/5 Bloody Fangs
P. J. (Tricia) Hoover wanted to be a Jedi, but when that didn’t work out, she became an electrical engineer instead. After a fifteen year bout designing computer chips for a living, P. J. decided to start creating worlds of her own. She’s the author of Tut: The Story of My Immortal Life, featuring a fourteen-year-old King Tut who’s stuck in middle school, and Solstice, a super-hot twist on the Hades/Persephone myth. When not writing, P. J. spends time with her husband and two kids and enjoys practicing kung fu, solving Rubik’s cubes, watching Star Trek, and playing too many video games.

I’ll admit that I don’t keep up-to-date on celebrities, so for this, I consulted with my sixth grade daughter. As you can see, she’s all about YouTube and Anime J
TUT: Eren Yeager from Attack on Titan
Perhaps my daughter’s favorite Anime character, Eren is the perfect fit for Tut (also, I should note that she dressed up as Eren for Halloween this past year, so she thinks he’s pretty awesome).
GIL: Kaname Kuran from Vampire Knight
How is Kaname like Gil you might ask? Gil is immortal. Kaname is immortal. Gil is very protective of Tut. Kaname is super protective of Yuki. Gil is talk, dark, and mysterious. Ditto Kaname.
TIA: Rosanna Pancino
This one was easy. Both the daughter and I agreed right off the bat. Why? Tia likes baking cookies and cakes. Rosanna likes baking cookies and cakes. Tia is quirky. So is Rosanna
HENRY: Armin Arlert from Attack on Titan
Aside from Attack on Titan being an epic show, Armin is perfect for Henry. They look about the same. They’re both smart and a bit nerdy. They both are great sidekick characters.
THOTH: Glenn Rhee from The Walking Dead
Not sure what the actor (Steven Yeun) is like, but the character of Glenn is perfect for Thoth, the god of words, in TUT: MY EPIC BATTLE TO SAVE THE WORLD.
