#50 -- Brave the Betrayal (Everworld #8) by KA Applegate
From the Publisher
Jalil, David, Christopher, and April have definitely made some mistakes since they’ve been trapped in Everworld. You have to admit, it’s got to be pretty tough not to screw up when you find yourself in a place that makes absolutely no sense. So, it’s pretty understandable that Jalil and the others wouldn’t think twice about trading a chemistry book for an unbelievably sharp knife. For protection. After all, the Coo-Hatch seemed harmless enough. Just another group of transplanted aliens who managed to end up in Everworld.
Now it seems those same aliens are combining the textbook information with their own technology to create horrific new weapons. And guess who they plan to use them on…
With a detour through and Africa created by the gods the teens are heading to Egypt to find Senna’s real mother, a witch herself. While in Africa they run into a demigod who demands a sacrifice be made to his gods. When April & Jalil refuse to sacrifice anything, his wrath is horrible.
A side note on this one—there is a lot more on the topic of the kids in the ‘real’ world in this book. How being in EverWorld and then crossing over into the real world when they sleep is affecting them in both worlds and how they are somehow becoming less in the real world and more in EverWorld.
