liked the concept and style!
The main issue I had with this book was, it wasn't as thrilling as I had expected it should be. Perhaps I had been watching 'The Mummy' too many times that I thought Denibus Ar would somehow match its 'wow' factor though not entirely. When the author described the story as supernatural thriller, I anticipated scary mummies, angry Pharaohs, dirty scandals and acts of betrayal happening that give rise to the six-sided pyramid. I was a bit disappointed because the prologue somehow gave me that vague impression of how 'supernatural' everything would be like, which turned out to be unremarkable.Was this review helpful?

On the bright side, I was impressed by the author's knowledge of the Egyptian history and legends. I had to admit that I had hard times trying to catch up with the archaeological terms, the scene descriptions and everything in between. At some point also, in one particular chapter, I thought I had a private literary tour experience around the site exclusively delivered by Prof. Chesla with her long explanation of the history. Everything was quite believable and convincing, so the author had truly done a great job with that.
