This is my 2nd favorite book in the whole series! It reminds me of the movie, The Mummy, which I love. In fact, whenever I reread this book, I almost always watch The Mummy afterwards lol
Our boys just can't seem to catch a break. In this book we leave Widdershins behind to venture out to the deserts of Egypt where Christine has requested Whyborne's help at her excavation site. I love everything about this book...I've always liked Egypt with its incredible history and amazing artifacts and this book provides me with all of that. Nothing like an undead Egyptian queen hot on your tail with her flesh eating monsters to keep a story exciting!
In the last book, Griffin gave up his family (more like they gave HIM up) who gave him an ultimatum of them or Whyborne. Whyborne is still shocked that Griffin chose him. He feels a huge amount of pressure to make sure Griffin never regrets his decision and Whyborne hopes that he's worth it and is enough. He's afraid that Griffin has given up too much to be with him and may at some point in their lives hate him because of it. While Whyborne's self-confidence does grow with each passing book, he still feels insecure in his place by Griffin's side sometimes.
One of my favorite things about this book is that Whyborne finally admits to being a sorcerer. I was so proud of him! For the past 3 books Whyborne has been adamant that he's just a scholar who dabbles in magic but is most definitely NOT a sorcerer. Whyborne finally comes to terms with his power and his abilities and proceeds to kick major ass with his spells.
I also enjoyed Iskander's character. It was obvious he was smitten with Christine and I found it rather funny that he assumed Whyborne and Christine had a relationship and was jealous of Whyborne. Poor thing...
The only complaint I have about this book is that we don't get to actually see Whyborne after his battle when he has a fever and everyone thinks he's going to die. I know that with the book being in Whyborne's POV you can't really write a chapter like that but I would have loved to have seen Griffin and Christine worried and scared that Whyborne wasn't going to make it...I'm just a horrible person lol
I enjoyed the Egyptian mythology in this one (poor Whyborne, never one for travel). We meet Iskander (love the name!) in this book, a man who works with Christine. All the characters in this series are likeable—or you like to hate them, at least.
And then, of course, we have Daphne. I won’t say too much more, other than the fact at first I felt sorry for her, then I wanted to hit her. I would have given this book five stars, because it is such a beautiful series, but there were just little things in this book that brought it down to four stars for me. But I still loved the book, and I love this series. Griffin and Whyborne are as adorable as ever, and both have their faults, but they are brave and wonderful.
Christine is in Egypt, directing another dig when an "associate" is murdered. And not just murdered...eaten. Well, partially anyway. On top of that, she's at risk of losing her dig rights to "more appropriate" male colleagues. Naturally, she contacts the best detectives she knows, her best friends and surrogate family, Whyborne and Griffin.
Peeved, to say the least, at Christine's summons, Whyborne debates going. That is until a guard at the museum is brutally killed by an animalistic intruder looking for something in the Egyptian artifacts Christine had uncovered. Now he knows Christine isn't just being "demanding Christine" and that she is facing significant danger, he and Griffin head off to Egypt to save the not so damsel in distress.
This may just be my favorite W & G. The action is nearly non-stop, while Griffin and Whyborne's romance (and healthy lust for each other) is rock solid and stronger than ever. Griffin finally, finally begins to accept Whyborne's abilities.We get to see a different side of Christine that makes her a more fully realized character. The monsters and the big bad are awesomely creepy and evil and a bit heartbreaking. In short, if this was a movie, it would be a solid extra large bucket of popcorn, extra butter and a box of Milk Duds kinda movie.
Their friendship of Christine is more than "she's around, guessed what we are, so we have to accept her". Christine is their chosen sister and trust me, if she is injured, you don't want either of these two men after you.
Still, the lovely trio are too often underestimated by their foes. Evil that has lived for centuries find their demise at their hands.
I think I will die a little death when I have read all that is currently published in the series. Dear Jordan Hawk, do not ever stop showing us wonderful glimpses into Whyborne and Griffin's lives!
