Book Description:

Three priceless star jewels. A century-old, cryptic journal. Using only the resources left by your grand-uncle, it's up to you to find Atraharsis — the legendary lost city beneath the sands.

But the way won't be easy. Raging sandstorms, sinister traps, and a whole host of mysteries stand between you and your Ultimate goal.

Can you solve the riddles, and recover the fabled star gems in time?

Or will you — like so many who've gone before — become the next permanent resident of the forgotten city?

YOU choose your own path in this treasure-hunting adventure! Ultimate Ending lets YOU pick the story. YOU make the decisions, solve the riddles, avoid the traps and gather the clues. It's a mystery and adventure book that YOU control!

Book Review:
Treasures of the Forgotten City is so fun!!! Yes it's THREE exclamation points worthy! Seriously, I wish I had this game as a kid. It creates a fun reading experience and adventure! Treasures of the Forgotten City makes reading so fun! I definitely will have to show this to my younger siblings. Make your own adventure books are the best. Mr. McAleese and Kristoph did an amazing job at building theirs. It has clear directions and the end result is so awesome! Overall I give Treasures of the Forgotten City five stars!
