    A unique enjoyable work

    In 1359 BC in only the second year in the reign of Tut, former Queen Nefertiti gives birth to a girl. The father is Ramose, a powerful priest soon to become high priest of Amon. With that type of heritage, one would expect a silver spoon existence, but instead the child even as an adult struggles to survive the political backstabbing at the Pharaoh's court. She reluctantly trusts only her physician husband. <P> In modern Denver, medical illustrator Kate McKinnon uncovers a puzzler involving a mummy Tashat. X-rays reveal that inside the wrappings exist a young woman with broken bones and the skull of a male between her legs. No known mummy contained body parts from two people. Accompanied by her radiologist Max Cavanaugh, Kate tries to unravel a mystery over three thousand years old. <P>THE EYE OF HORUS is an extraordinary mystery that keeps the audience riveted on what happened in the past and what is happening in the present. The dual plots intertwine as the past and present rotate chapters until they converge in the brilliant climax. The stories contain parallel paths and charcaters as modern forensic science uncovers a crime from Ancient Egypt. Carol Thurston has written a great what happened mystery that combines historical elements with contemporary forensic science. Egyptologists and amateur sleuth fans will devour this tale that spans the millenniums and demand sequels. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Highly Recommended

    Wonderful storytelling of ancient egypt and modern times. This book is so well written that you feel the sights, sounds, technology, mystery, and emotions of the characters. This is a must read. The only reason it does not get a 5 star rating is the ending solved one mystery but, left the modern day characters hanging in limbo. I would love to see a sequel to this book, just so the whole storyline can be completed. Otherwise it's a fantastic historical read.

    Like a trip through the Gates of Time!!

    Carol Thurston if you do not continue this story you are crazed. What a wonderful full and rich flavored tale. One which pulls the reader into a web as delicate and complex as imagination itself. The characters are deep and well rounded...and make the reader a part of the story...A must read for anyone who loves .... to fall through the hole in the page...

    The EYE OF HORUS a must-read for any Egyptophile!

    You may want to buy a copy for a close friend as well as yourself, cause you'll definitely want to have someone to talk with about this one. You'll also need to keep reminding yourself that it's fiction--who Aset is, what happened to her, and why--even though, as it turns out, this mummy actually exists! A mesmerizing tale filled with political intrigue both ancient and modern, deeply affecting characters, and fascinating minutia about ancient Egypt in the period following the pharaoh who may have been the first monotheist. Thurston is supposed to be working on a sequel, but like the reviewer for the Washington Post said, if so she has a tough act to follow.

    Save your money

    Not one of the better books I've read. Reads like a rip off of a Wilber Smith novel.

    I loved it!

    I was looking for good novels or books on Ancient Egypt, because I am obsessed with Ancient Egypt. I was very impressed with Thurston's work with combining the two stories to become one. In the end.. well i wont give it away.. but does it have something to do with past lives? who knows. My personal rating: 100 stars. A must read.
