City of the Dead
The book is well-written and truly captures the sultry landscape of Egypt. I thought the characters were believable and all had differing personalities. I personally don't know much about the actual historical people in the timeline the author wrote about, but I really didn't need to to enjoy this story. I liked how the story was fast-paced and focused. It didn't linger too long or stay too shortly in one area. I find this wonderful because it draws the reader into the world and doesn't leave them lagging behind in boredom.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

My only negative opinion is that I thought there should have been a "repentance" scene in the book, because of the main character's connections with an Egyptian christian group in the story. There were only his thoughts of God and not an actual accepting of Him. I would say more but don't want to ruin the ending! All in all, its a great read filled with romance, action, intrigue and betrayal!
