Historical Fiction

by Val. on Dec 30, 2010

I enjoyed the story line. Again, a book I read as a teen, and wanted for my own collection. I like Egyptian stories and themes.


Sheer fun

by Rosanne on Aug 10, 2007

A heady, perfect cocktail of historical detail, political intrigue, and romance between two very different and exciting characters, this is a delight from cover to cover. A history lesson it ain't, but for something on the side to pique some interest in Egyptian history, or to enrich study of that period, this can't be beat. Long overdue for a film version, I think - if they could do it justice. Well-written, exciting, with a very nice aftertaste (!), this is great fun.

This has been a favorite of mine since I was ten years old. It has everything a good story should; adventure, romance, intrigue, secret agents, double crossing, politics, and loyalty. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone!


a teen read

by sea7788 on Jul 11, 2007

I read this book as a teen or pre-teen - I'd always liked Ancient Egypt and was just starting to think about romance. This is a book with a plot that will hold the attention and two interesting central characters, treading the line between appearance and reality. I still reread it sometimes. It doesn't have any inspiring young adult messages but it's fun, if you have an adolescent in the house who likes history.
