Can the Lords of Death be fooled?“Zotz was a bat, but not just any bat,” said Megan. “He was a vampire bat like those we saw in the cave above. In Mayan legend, he played a part in the story of two brothers who upset the Lords of Death and were forced to travel to the Underworld—called Xibalba.

Thirteen-year-old Matt Barnes and Sarah Sachs, while attempting to rescue Matt's father from multiple universes, face an even more challenging obstacle: the erasure of their own timeline. What can they do before they, themselves, are erased?
Somewhere along the Nile the two teens must prevent the ultimate meddling during the time of Nubian pharaohs and princes, palaces and temples to rival the ancient Egyptians and fearsome desert raiders. They must puzzle out the moment and event where Matt's father or his arch nemesis, Nadine, interfered with history. If they don't, it could mean the end of time as we know it, or a never-ending loop of time.
Warning: You must have a strong stomach to read this book, as it is sprinkled with the occasional mummified remains.

"Matt and Sarah once again travel through time in order to save Matt's dad from his ensnarement within multiple universes. This time, however, their own existence is at stake, as they race against time and the erasure of the timeline that they somehow upset along the way.
Readers of the 'Time Meddlers' series will delight in this third book as they are once again traveling through time with the two friends who become even more in this installment. Most will find it refreshing that any romance takes a backseat to the adventure and the task at hand."
-Jeanna Sciarrotta, Children's Literature
"I really love this series. So so much. But this was by far my favourite book. I loved: The character development. Their growth moves right along with the story, yet not always doing things you expect. Which is nice, even as an adult I never found the story to be predictable. Anyone of any age can love these books."
