Overview

When Aya, a sixteen-year-old Egyptian girl, communicates with Ma'at, ancient Egyptian goddess of justice and truth, she opens the doors to an alternate reality where history and current events are not at all what they seem and ancient myths turn out to be more than just enigmatic legends.

Ma'at is not the only Neteru around. The Neteru, an ancient pre-human race believed to be deities by their contemporaries, are an eclectic bunch. Some are good, some are bad, and some are just plain silly.

But now, some are roaming our world under the guise of --well, only Aya can tell you that.

Join Aya and her band of unlikely allies on a quest that will take you through the Ka river beaming with life energy, under the tunnels of the Sphinx and through ancient Egyptian sacred sites.

Egypt: The Uprising is about courage, dedication to family, and a deep love for culture and the nature of the universe... This book has genuine heart and is about real human values. I'll stick with this series any time.

    Fast paced action and incredible twists

    Reviewed by Molly E. for Readers Favorite

    "Egypt: the Uprising" is filled with history and a great start to a new series. This author has natural talent when it comes to creating an interesting and gripping story. This book weaves true events into a fictional novel. It's filled with a touch of suspense, lots of action and really great characters. The roles each character played in this real-life story was amazing. I could feel myself being swept away to the heart of Egypt.

    Classic good versus evil works its way through the story, as Aya takes on saving the world. Through fantasy and fiction, Aya makes her way into the hearts of her readers. The fast paced action and incredible twists make you feel like you are in front of a movie screen. No matter whether you are an adult or a young adult, you will find something in this detailed and riveting story. Ancient Egyptian mythology mixed with modern day events really hooks the reader and holds them until the last page. The pages fly by and suddenly you are wondering when the next book will be released. Highly recommended and a wonderful writing talent!
