Crossway Books & Bibles The Cooper Kids Adventure Series #3: The Tombs of Anak

An angry terror lurks at the bottom of a dark pit...
Jay and Lila Cooper are back for another adventure, this time in search of a young treasure-seeker whose ambitions drove him to the bottom of a pit, never to return. In their struggle to understand what happened to him, the Coopers learn of a greedy, man eating creature known as Ha-Raphah, who terrorizes locals into worshiping him. Although they are certain he is extremely dangerous, Jay and Lila are determined to uncover the truth.

This story of dangerous exploits and a mission to stop an evil that holds a population in its crushing grip will have you hooked from start to finish. Recommended for ages 10 to 14, 143 pages.

Review by Jill Williamson
Jay and Lila and their archaeologist father, Dr. Cooper, enter the tombs of Anak in search of a missing coworker. Instead, they stumble onto a village where the people follow a bizarre religion. These Anakim people believe that Anak Ha-Raphah is their god and will destroy them if he becomes angry. And Dr. Cooper's meddling in the tombs has angered the god. But Dr. Cooper is not afraid. He must discover what became of his coworker and no false religion will stop him.
Peretti is a genius storyteller. Even adults would enjoy these Cooper Kids Adventure classics that follow Dr. Cooper and his children as they explore this planet for history that proves the Bible is fact. As always, Peretti writes fast-paced, scary stories of good vs. evil. I enjoyed watching this mystery unfold. If you've never read a Cooper Kids book, I highly recommend them for readers ages 10 to adult.

It's and intresting story, but the same thing seems happens over and over. Plus, Jay and Lila don't seem as smart as they do in the other books I've read. The story is very unreal, but it makes sense and definitely keeps you intrest.It's not scary and there is a suprise near the end!

This was my second favorite of the Cooper Kids Adventures, but it was the one book that scared me the most. So I recommend not letting 10 or younger read it cause I got really scared but other than that its a GREAT book!

I just finished getting the rest of the books in this series. My daughter (7) loves these books. Each chapter leaves her at a cliff hanger and she just can't wait till the next! She will start this book next week.

this book was great! It is NOT too scary, it is awesome!! I love this book. I bet the reason those people thought is was too scary for their kids is because their kids are to young for these books. They are better for teenagers than for young kids. I read lots of Peretti's books. This is one of my favorites!!! :}

The Tombs of Anak was my close 2nd favorite in the series. My favorite was "Escape From the Island of Aquaris". It was a little scary and weird, but I enjoyed it. It was HARD to put down! I haven't read the last 2 in the series, but most of the others are great to! The new covers for these books are cool!

This was the first and last of this series we will read. Parents should review these books before their children read them. This book contained a great deal of scary content in the environment of real life, and the writing was cheesy. I gave it 1.5 stars because it tried to incorporate some Biblical OT history.

I enjoy the Cooper Kids series but this one was just a little too scary for my choice in a children's book. Those who prefer slightly more graphic excitement will probably enjoy the adventure of running through the tunnels and trying to solve the mystery. The story was good and did have some Biblical history to it that gives you clues to the answer.
