The finale to the New York Times bestselling Secret Series!

I always feared this day would come. A secret is meant to stay secret, after all. And now we've come to this: the fifth and final (I swear!) book in my saga of secrets.

A class trip to the local natural history museum turns dangerous, or perhaps deadly--and I don't mean in the bored-to-death way--when Cass accidentally breaks a finger off a priceless mummy. Forced to atone for this "crime" of vandalism, Cass and her friends Max-Ernest and Yo-Yoji go to work for the mummy exhibit's curator, only to be blamed when tragedy strikes. To clear their names--and, they hope, to discover the Secret--the trio must travel deep into a land of majestic pyramids, dusty tombs, mysterious hieroglyphs, and the walking dead. Egypt? Or somewhere much stranger . . .

In the midst of it all, the Secret still lurks. You're out there, reading and talking about it, and now my life--and chocolate supply--is in the greatest danger yet. So please, with a cherry on top, I'm begging you: you have to stop this!

      Cass, the secret keeper for the Terces Society, a group dedicated to protecting the Secret from the evil Midnight Sun, has been assigned the task of finding the Secret. Unfortunately, the papyrus it was written on has turned to dust! Will Cass be able to find the Secret? Meanwhile, her class takes a trip to a museum, where they see a mysterious mummy. When the mummy suddenly disappears, Cass and her two friends, Max-Ernest and Yo-Yoji, are blamed! Soon, they learn that the mummy might be the key to the Secret! Did the Midnight Sun steal the mummy? And if they did, how will the trio stop them? I like this book because it's very interesting and funny.

          This book is funny but scary at the exact same time, which is exactly how I like books. The funniest part for me was definitely the "Cat Mummy Says" exchange.

              7 year old: This book series is awesome, but I like the Bad Books a little better. 9 year old: I really liked this series (pseudonymous Bosch loves chocolate!) Mom: We all loved this series, it's got some creepiness factors to it, and I think we all like the Bad Books just a bit better, but this series plays with eternal life and the creepy things the bad guys had to do to get eternal life. Our good guys kept thwarting their plans mwahaha.

                  Will this be the end of Cass, hopefully not because then who would be The Secret Keeper. Surely not Max-Ernest or Yo-Yoji. Only Cass can discover the Secret. Those are only hints I am giving you. Oh, you might want to know that the whole reason that Max-Ernest, Yo-Yoji and Cass are in Vegas is because of the ruthless Lord Pharaoh. Lord Pharaoh stole the mummy from the museum not Cass and her friends. But who gets blamed, why Cass of course. The mummy is the only way to know The Secret. So read this book to find out what happens.
