About the Book

After their hair-raising, time-traveling adventure in Professor Atlas and the Summoning Dagger, Tyler Gerard and his best friend, Brandon Giles, thought they’d seen everything. In Professor Atlas and the Jewel of Enlightenment, though, Tyler and Brandon quickly learn that the excitement is far from over. They, along with Professor Fielding Atlas, soon find themselves on a mission to retrieve an ancient mystical jewel that is thought to endow remarkable powers on its holder. To accomplish their task, they must infiltrate the Tiger of Alecto, a sect populated by a group of bloodthirsty extremists. Leading the Tiger of Alecto is the murderous Vijay Verma, a remorseless killer who will stop at nothing to achieve his hateful goals. The new journey is, of course, filled with narrow escapes and heart-pounding action, but such things seem to be typical of life with Professor Atlas!

Like its predecessor, Professor Atlas and the Jewel of Enlightenment is jam-packed with exotic intrigue, action-movie thrills, and a healthy dose of laughter. It also sends messages about the importance of friendship, honesty, and accountability. Professor Atlas is a character of great integrity who stands up for fairness and respect, and Tyler and Brandon are two typical American middle-school students with a hunger for excitement and a keen sense of loyalty to each other. The three find themselves in a world of diverse characters, both good and bad, who add bountiful color to a story that will keep you turning the pages and trying to guess what will happen next!
