Overview

Undercover agent Omar Zagouri has been ordered to Giza. A prominent Egyptologist was murdered, and a priceless artifact—the only complete version of the Book of the Dead—is missing. Omar is still reeling from the recent disappearance of his girlfriend, Mia Golding, but he puts his quest to find her on hold to track down the lost piece of history.

Omar’s mission is not just to locate the sacred book; he must also rescue the two archaeologists kidnapped and forced to translate its hieroglyphics under threat of death. Their kidnapper is determined to discover the text’s rumored explosive revelation: that Moses did not receive the Ten Commandments from God but instead copied them from the Egyptians. Though Omar’s need to find Mia grows more urgent, he must focus on finding the enemy who will stop at nothing to ignite a controversy that will change history, and the world, forever.

Lost King is a fabulous read. I was captivated from the beginning and was hooked throughout. There is a switch between history and modern day which I enjoyed. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommended. 5 plus stars.

The Lost King is about undercover agents trying to retrieve stolen ancient artifacts that could change the history of the world if they content would become public. There is murder, kidnapping, romance, lots of action, and intrigue. The characters are well developed. The plot is well thought out. The action of fast and furious. What is also very interesting is that the artifacts that are stolen is from Hatshepsut. The writer cleverly adds Hatshepsut's story along with the present day story so we know how the artifact gets to the place it is and why. The reader gets a thriller and a historical fiction all in one novel. The historical story is very well told and makes you feel that you know Hatshepsut and her struggles. I enjoyed this book from start to finish. Not what I expected. A definite one for the library. I was given this book for a honest review.

I love the thrilling adventure that an Omar Zagouri book will promise! The story is told from multiple points of view, but the plot flows seamlessly and quickly as the mystery is uncovered. Hatshe's ancient story is fascinating and compelling as she feels the role of Pharaoh should be hers but must helplessly witness it fall to another. She is an admirable character who wants to contribute to her country and serve its people with her interest and skills in military strategy and architecture. There is romance and intrigue in her time and in the modern day story arc, as Omar tries to protect his girlfriend Mia in the middle of a dangerous assignment. We see parts told from the villain's perspective as well as some professors that get caught in the middle of an international scandal. The non-stop action that Omar finds himself in is tempered by flashbacks to Hatshe's royal drama and dilemma. Highly recommend!

I really enjoyed how this book went from modern times to the past. This is another thriller with Omar and Mia. They need to find out why a scientist was murdered in a pyramid and what was in some stolen scrolls. This leads them to Learning about the pharaoh Hatshepsut. There are many twists and turns for Omar and Mia. We get to learn about how Hatshepsut becomes pharaoh. I received this book from netgalley and book reviewers for a fair and honest opinion.

If you're a fan of historical fiction and high-paced suspense then you'll definitely want to read Lost King. I read and reviewed the first book in this series, Finding Sheba, and loved it. These books are stand-alones with some of the same characters appearing, mainly Omar Zagouri. Omar is an undercover agent who breaks all the rules, could best be described as a loose cannon with a funny sense of humor, but always gets the job done. In Lost King, he's tangled up with the theft of ancient artifacts believed to have been written by the Pharaoh she-king, Queen Hatshepsut. This book was excellent, especially because its underpinnings are based on the real history of Hatshepsut. Heather shines in writing historical fiction. She has a gift of bringing these ancient characters to life in a way that makes you look at history in a whole new and fascinating light. I loved the character of Thutmose II and the romance between him and Hatshepsut. Hers was a flawed character, and very well-written. The modern day part of this story was fast-paced, full of action, and surprises. Heather has written another winner that you won't want to miss. I received a review copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

I really enjoyed Finding Sheba and was expecting a lot from this next installment. I wasn't disappointed one bit! This is fast-paced, intense, and very well done, with some fantastic romantic elements. The story jumps back and forth between three different stories, one ancient and two modern. Omar, an undercover agent, is once again on a mission. This time, he's supposed to find a missing artifact, but has his own agenda, as well--to locate his missing girlfriend, Mia. We also see the story of Kale and Farrah unfold. Farrah is a descendant of Egypt royalty and is now an expert on artifacts. I was quite amused as these two modern stories merged. The ancient story tells of Hapshepsut, a female Egyptian pharaoh, and Thut. I loved diving into each element of the story and was amazed at how well they were put together. I absolutely love Omar! He doesn't intend to be funny, but comes across that way at times. He always manages to come up with ingenious ways to get out of his scrapes and he's a magnet for danger and adventure. I couldn't help but swoon at the chemistry oozing off the pages between Farrah and Kale. There are some big mysteries surrounding them and I was very impatient waiting for them to be uncovered. As for Hapshepsut and Thut...what an intriguing, heartbreaking, and emotional element. Their story is told in a way that completely drew me in emotionally. I've wondered about historical events and places and reading about them really brought home what some of the issues in their day were and how some people might have really felt about their situations. It brought ancient Egypt alive in a new and unique way. I couldn't get enough of it! I hope there's more coming in this series because I've loved it so much thus far. Content: mild language; mild-moderate violence (it IS an intense story with some shootings, kidnappings, beatings, attacks, etc, but nothing is graphic); moderate romantic elements (kissing, fade to black between a married couple, innuendo, descriptions of ancient Egypt dress--see thru clothes, breasts stained with henna, implied acts with harlots, etc). I would consider it clean for an older reader. *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*

Title: Lost King - Omar Zagouri Thriller Book 2 Author: H. B. Moore Published: 12-1-15 Publisher: Thomas & Mercer Pages: 418 Genre: Mystery, Thriller & Suspense Sub Genre: General Fiction, Historical, Crime and Terrorism ISBN: 9782503949621 ASIN: B00XPMFLC2 Language: Mild Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley . As always H.B. Moore has taken the time of ancient history, and put a twist on it to provide a fictional event that could easily have happened. This event has a rippling effect that affects the world today. Her Omar Zagouri is chasing the scrolls of the last Pharaoh before the time of Moses, an unique Pharaoh in that she was a woman, Queen Hatshepsut. Her scrolls, if authenticated, these artifacts could shake up the beliefs of many religions. As we know wars have started for less. This story is such that you can actually envision that such an event took place and that you were there for the discovery. The plot and the build up to the core story is composed in such a way that you can see in your mind's eye the action taking place and the effects the events have on the lives of the people involved. I look forward joining Omar in his next thrilling adventure.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. “Lost King” by H. B. Moore is a historical fiction/suspense novel. An archeologist has been murdered in a recently discovered tomb. Omar is an undercover agent that has been sent to investigate the murder. His girlfriend, Mia, is missing and he is upset about leaving that investigation to take over this one. Omar finds Mia while he is investigating the murder and brings down an enemy organization. This book is written in both the present day and in ancient Egypt telling the story of Hatshepsut the female Pharoah. I loved this book. My favorite parts were the ones told from Hatshepsut’s point of view. I would recommend this book to anyone lovers of historical suspense novels. A great easy read. I didn’t want to put it down.

Let me just say how much I enjoyed reading Lost King! I usually have a good time reading Moore’s books so I was happy when I had the opportunity to review this novel for free for an honest review. Moore has a way of bringing the old, mixing it with the new and somehow it doesn’t get mixed up. She is excellent at telling several stories at once, weaving in intrigue, romance, fight scenes and still having it all make sense. She makes writing seem effortless! I always enjoy how Moore personifies her “real” characters giving personalities any of us might have, while including historical truths about the period. I can always tell when I’ve read a good book because I want to visit the area I’ve just read about. 5 Stars. Clean. Mild cursing. Some innuendo relative to the period (Ancient Egypt).
