My single gripe is convoluted, I am irritated by the modern wording in the erotic scenes.
Sorry, but when you tell me a story is set several thousand years ago in a very different culture and land I expect the language to be more in tune with the time and setting. The flowery descriptions weren't there and the phrasing and language just did not fit. Unfortunately this sabotaged me out of the tale. The cultural contrast was just too jarring and abrupt.
Hopefully that will be corrected in future works.
On the positive side it did have its own ending rather than being a cliffhanger. With a bit of work it could be improved upon. Did not impress me enough read the rest of the series.
There's much to love here. Nima is a strong character, both physically and mentally, and a VERY skilled dancer. Kamin is a spy (or something more). She wears a snake amulet bead, linked to Renenuet, the Snake Goddess; his personal God is Horus, the Falcon (and those two critters are never friends IRL). Nima contrives an escape and the two of them flee the evil Hyksos before reaching the stronghold, carrying vital information that MUST be passed to Pharaoh.
I found the start, fast-paced and exciting though it was, a little confusing. I wasn't sure if this was a continuation of another book in the series (it's not) or if I'd missed the set-up; I wasn't sure if these two characters were supposed to know each other or not. Although there's plenty of chemistry, there's only one sex scene - given the plotline of the story, it would have been impossible to staple in more, but some readers might be disappointed with that.
But I liked that these characters fall in love with each other's NOT merely based on sexual attraction or chemistry (which they have, in spades) and that Nima really isn't sure what she's supposed to DO with her amulet. Enjoyed getting to see another Egyptian goddess (Renenuet) strut her stuff, as well as a little of Horus's trick. The pacing holds up well (though this is almost a novella, at under 200 pages), the ending is suitably exciting and (of course) there's a happily ever after.
