Overview

CPR in ancient Egypt? Alexandria Stone is a physician with all the techniques of modern medicine at her disposal, but when an x-ray of a mummy found at her father's archeological dig reveals a procedure that hadn't been developed four thousand years ago, her excitement overcomes her scientist's logic. Determined to prove her theory, she visits her father's dig. In the hidden room of a pharaoh's tomb, her father discovers an ancient scroll lying near a statue of the goddess, Isis. When Alex attempts to sing the song written on it, she is transported back in time--and right into the arms of the best looking hunk she's ever encountered: Tarik, chief physician to Pharaoh Mentuhotep. Despite his attraction to the lovely time traveler, Tarik is bound by honor to give her to Pharaoh as his concubine. A world of implausible sights and unimaginable pleasures captivates Alex's senses, while the love of Tarik holds her heart spellbound even as she tries to unravel the magical secret of Song of Isis.

Editorial Reviews

Anonymous Reviewer
Difficult subjects like Egyptian history seem easy under the pen of Diana Kirk. An unusual period of history and a talent for storytelling and detail make Song of Isis deliciously satisfying. Another winner for Hard Shell. 4 1/2 Stars!
Merline Lovelace
In Song of Isis, Diana Kirk has given us a lush, beautifully researched tale of love that conquers time. Her lyrical descriptions of ancient Egypt made me feel as if I had sand in my shoes, and her characters pulled at my heart. A must read for everyone who enjoys exploring ancient times and cultures!

    Sequel Please

    It¿s a fantastical affair complete with actual ancient Egyptian facts and a dreamy 3000 year old hunk. What more can you ask for? Diana Kirk details the landscape and the people of ancient Egypt so well you feel as if you¿re actually standing in ancient Egypt, diaphanous shifts and all. The characters were mature and as another review said, developed, an example is that Alexandria comes across as strong rather than impetuous and girlish. Tarik is a forward thinker who is willing to, get this, listen to what a woman has to say and make almost on the spot changes. I wish some modern men could do that. All in all it was absolutely exhilarating to read. I DO wish there was more though. The ending left me feeling like there is a sequel to be made. I¿m still keeping my fingers crossed

    Needs a sequal

    If you like time travel, you'll like this book. Main character is well developed, and story is great! In my opinion, this book could use a sequal!
