If Alex and Ren are going to stop the Death Walkers, they know they have to find the powerful Lost Spells. So they head to the Valley of the Kings, deep in the Egyptian desert -- where they discover that Egypt is in the grips of madness. Voices in the air whisper dark secrets and flashes of light burn across the night sky.

But their hunt for the Spells keeps getting sabotaged. Every step they take, The Order is hot on their trail. There's no dodging, no hiding. Is someone leaking their secrets?

Is there anyone they can trust?
