Although the standard of English is better than many books one buys these days, and it has clearly been proof read and corrected rather than just spell checked, I found the story telling pedestrian, taking pages to progress the plot where other writers would take a few paragraphs. Also it ended just when it was getting properly interesting and I came to the conclusion that this is because it has been published as a lead-in to get you to buy the next book in the series, which presumably finishes the story begun here. I guess the pricing at just 99p should have given me the clue. Had the whole of this story been published as a single volume at a higher price I would likely have bought more of the authors works, but as it is I'm just disappointed enough that I won't make further investment.
Each scene that Fiona Deal creates in words, instantly visualises inside one's mind. It also taps into all your senses with sounds, scents and more.
With the author's expert knowledge about all things Egypt (antique/old and new), this book is a MUST on the reading list for anyone planning to visit Luxor or Cairo, or both. I've never been, but now I'm dying to visit (and I shall have to read the book again before I go!).
It would credit any book club listing and is certain to generate interesting group discussion.
I'm sure the book will soon be made into a movie. Read it first, before Hollywood gets its hands on it.
I cannot wait to start the second book and know that I shall read and enjoy all of them.
Be warned, there's no way you won't want to read the next book in the series!
Carter was a much maligned man and his contribution to history has gone rather unnoticed in this modern world but this book had me wanting more and has re-awakened my love for Egypt.
A good read , a good story, a brilliant book
