A Good Proofreader Would Bump This Review Up To 4 Stars...
on January 3, 2012
This review is for the Kindle version. The paper version may vary.
My overall reaction to this novel is that I really liked it. It is a cool twist on the time travel genre (set in ancient Egypt). I would rate it 3.5 to 4 stars, except for one thing: it greatly needs a proofreader. One of the primary characters undergoes an inexplicable name change about 10% into the story (from Diana to Diane), which was the most jarring issue for me. Then there were just sloppy typos that I'm sure the author would be mortified about (most notably, "to" where "too" is required, & words that should end in "ed" instead ending with "es"). Such small things, because it is clear that the author is skilled, but it drops my rating to a 3. If you can overlook the typos and just enjoy the story, it's a really good read. I recommend it for readers who enjoy ancient Egyptian history and mythology, and are able to overlook the aforementioned typos.
