Mariah Mundi and The Midas Box
"Fresh out of school, Mariah faces a new chapter of his life living in the Prince Regent Hotel. His job is to assist the the magician in the stage shows held for the guests.
Above ground, the hotel offers every form of luxury. Below ground, withing the slimy dripping walls of the basement, the magic show equipment is kept-and lurking in an Egyptian sarcophagus is the secret that draws Mariah into the path of villainy and possible death."
Summary from Mariah Mundi and The Midas Box (faber and faber: 2008 edition)
This is the first book in the Mariah Mundi series by G.P Taylor. It had a lot of unexpected developments. There were a lot of things that you thought wouldn't happen. The book is set in England, a lot of it happens at night, making the place seem dark and gloomy. I liked the way the author wrote the book and there was a lot of action but sometimes the book dragged. The ending was really good but a little bit confusing. Overall it was a pretty good book

p.s. I decided to use summaries from the back of the book because it is faster and they are probably better than the summaries I was writing. :)
