From the Publisher"The landscape that flows by them as they make their way along the Nile and through the desert is described in rich sensory terms... Weapons, household items, pottery, and clothing known only to readers from tomb paintings or as faded museum objects are here given weight, color, and utility...the action comes together in the novel’s third act, when Isikara and Tuthmosis join forces with a runaway Nubian slave and ally themselves with Egypt’s rivals, the Kushites.–Paula Willey, Baltimore County Public Library, Towson, MD

"Writing like this allows the reader to seamlessly become a part of that world without having to understand every bit of it...The story is fast paced, but I was still allowed to get a sense of the characters. Overall a great read, and I look forward to an upcoming second book."
—Kiss the Book, Stephanie MLS graduate
"Packed with information about daily life in ancient Egypt, this tale full of murder, intrigue, and adventure will be sure to appeal."
