If you love reading about ancient Egypt and you have an open mind, you will love this book. I started reading and at 3:00am had to force myself to put the book down and go to bed. Pauline Gedge's writing is exceptional.
This book was interesting until it got creepy. Pauline Gedge is a good writer and I have enjoyed two other books she authored. This one was fine till she brought up the zombies. I pretty much turned off on it at that point. If you like zombies, go for it, personally it creeped me out and I will think twice before I purchase another book by this author.
