Hemiunu, architect for the Great Pyramid of Giza, struggles to stay on schedule and in the good graces of his cousin, Pharaoh of Egypt. When a sadistic killer is taking the lives of Hemiunu's closest friends, he does all he can to discover who the killer is and to keep a dark secret from coming to light. Wish I'd read this one a long time ago! What a great story. T.L. Higley completely sucked me into ancient Egypt and her character Hemiunu. He was a deep and interesting character to follow. I liked how she wrote her book in his first person point of view. It made it easy to connect with him. The storyworld was intriguing as was the relationships she built between the royal members of Pharaoh's court. Murder, love, betrayal. My heart ached for these people as they lived in their strange belief system and I love where she went with it. Plus, it was a good who-done-it. Another book I couldn't put down. I am glad there are seven wonders of the ancient world and hope I get to read every book in this series.

The book is well-written and truly captures the sultry landscape of Egypt. I thought the characters were believable and all had differing personalities. I personally don't know much about the actual historical people in the timeline the author wrote about, but I really didn't need to to enjoy this story. I liked how the story was fast-paced and focused. It didn't linger too long or stay too shortly in one area. I find this wonderful because it draws the reader into the world and doesn't leave them lagging behind in boredom. My only negative opinion is that I thought there should have been a "repentance" scene in the book, because of the main character's connections with an Egyptian christian group in the story. There were only his thoughts of God and not an actual accepting of Him. I would say more but don't want to ruin the ending! All in all, its a great read filled with romance, action, intrigue and betrayal! Reviewed Fawn Carter, my teenage daughter.
