7 posts | 5 read | 1 reading | 9 to read
In this fast paced sequel to The Everything Boxthe second entry in New York Times bestselling author Richard Kadreys comedic supernatural serieschaos ensues when Coop and the team at DOPS steal a not-quite-dead and very lovesick ancient Egyptian mummy wielding some terrifying magic. Coop, a master thief sort of gone legit, saved the world from an ancient doomsday deviceheroism that earned him a gig working for the Department of Peculiar Science, a fearsome top secret government agency that polices the odd and strange. Now Woolrich, Coops boss at the DOPS, has Coop breaking into a traveling antiquities show to steal a sarcophagus containing the mummy of a powerful Egyptian wizard named Harkhuf. With the help of his pals Morty, Giselle, and a professor thats half-cat, half-robotic octopus, Coop pulls off the heist without a hitch. Its not Coops fault that when DOPS opened the sarcophagus they didnt find the mummy they were expecting. Well, it was the right mummy, but it wasnt exactly deadand now its escaped, using a type of magic the organization hasnt encountered before. Being a boss, Woolrich blames his underling for the screw up and wants Coop to find the missing Harkhuf and make it right, pronto. Digging into Harkhufs history, Coop thinks the mummy is hunting for an ancient magical manuscript that will help him bring his old lover back to life. Which wouldnt be so bad if she wasnt a warrior sorceress hell-bent on conquering the world with her undead armies. Coop would very much like to run from the oncoming chaos. Its one thing to steal a mummy, but another to have to deal with head-hunting bureaucrats, down-on-their luck fortune tellers, undead mailroom clerks, and a rather unimpressed elephant. Unfortunately, theres nowhere to run. If he wants the madness to stop, hes going to have to suck it up and play hero one more time. But if Coop manages to save the world AGAIN, hes definitely going to want a lot of answers. And a raise.

So this book falls somewhere between a pick and so-so for me. But because I liked the ending, I gave it a pick. I enjoyed the first Coop Heist book, but book 2 fell a little flat for me. It was trying too hard and a bit too disjointed at times. It just didn‘t have the rhythm and fun that the first one had. 3.5 stars.

1. My bookish self: adventurous, magical, happy
2. I read anywhere, but at home, I‘m usually in my oversized, pet-hair protected, chair, with two side tables full of books.
3. None come to mind. But I‘ll think on it.
4. Happy Wednesday Littens! 👋🏻💜 Let‘s make it a great day!

Eggs Looks comfy 🤗📚📚 2mo

Such a fun book! Sandman Slim is still my favorite character from Richard Kadrey but Coop is moving up fast. A big plus is like his other books the author excels at some great secondary characters which continues in this series. Add in laugh out loud humor and outrageous situations makes this a must read for me. This does not come out until late February and I am already getting anxious for book 3.

The perfect book to get me out of my reading rut. Snarky humor, impossible situations, great characters, and just flat out fun to read!
