Overview

Egypt, 1500 BCE

Nima's beauty and skill as a dancer leads an infatuated enemy to kidnap her after destroying an Egyptian border town. However, she's not the only hostage in the enemy camp: Kamin, an Egyptian soldier on a secret mission for Pharaoh, has been taken as well. Working together to escape, the two of them embark on a desperate quest across the desert to carry word of the enemy's invasion plans to Pharaoh's people.

As they flee for their lives, these two strangers thrown together by misfortune have to trust in each other to survive. Nima suspects Kamin is more than the simple soldier he seems, but she finds it hard to resist the effect he has on her heart. Kamin has a duty to his Pharaoh to see his mission completed, but this clever and courageous dancer is claiming more of his loyalty and love by the moment. Kamin starts to worry, if it comes to a choice between saving Egypt or saving Nima's life...what will he do?

Aided by the Egyptian god Horus and the Snake Goddess Renenutet, beset by the enemy's black magic, can Nima and Kamin evade the enemy and reach the safety of the Nile in time to foil the planned attack?

Can there ever be a happy future together for the humble dancer and the brave Egyptian soldier who is so much more than he seems?

I won't give the story away but I will say , "Thank goodness this isn't another cliff hanger! It is filled with mysticism, magic , a little eroticism and a good story. This author has a fine handle on language, grammar and spelling. These things are very important to me. I read too many books which have been poorly constructed and edited . It is very refreshing to read a well crafted and created product. Thank you.

I got this book on a whim and absolutely LOVED it! Such a feel good epic tale. I can really see it as a movie actually. I love the main characters. They are both such great (and likeable) characters. You really get behind their quest! I definitely 100% would recommend this book. If you like movies like The Scorpion King or Gods of Egypt, you'll like it. I'd think anyone like it anyway, as long as you like the romance genre.

A great story with strong characters and plot that flows wonderfully. I love that 2 main characters are open and honest from the start and there isn't one stomping off over a perceived unjustisce like in so many other stories. Also really enjoyed the setting of Ancient Egypt

This is not usually the type of book I read, but it held my interest. I'm not sure I would read this author again. So many books, so little time.

I would like to see more about Kamin and Nima. Very well written story. Nice to see one that doesn't focus on sex as most of the story.

I loved the story and characters. The enchanting addition of Eygyptian mythology and culture in those ancient times are wonderful. I only wish there was just a slight continuation of the story. Maybe like an epilogue.

I picked up this book and before I knew it I was 200 pages in when I looked away from the text for the first time. Truly a delightful book and graspt my attention thoroughly. I enjoyed the entirety of the book, but the ending seemed a little rushed. The book was already long and it wouldn't have mattered if it was a little longer. AKA meeting the Pharaoh, meeting the family, and other things that would ruin the book if I stated them. Truly a good book, but ending felt rushed.

The book throws us right into action; the heroine is tied up and being carried in a litter; the hero is being led/pulled on a rope behind the group of Hyksos soldiers. There's much to love here. Nima is a strong character, both physically and mentally, and a VERY skilled dancer. Kamin is a spy (or something more). She wears a snake amulet bead, linked to Renenuet, the Snake Goddess; his personal God is Horus, the Falcon (and those two critters are never friends IRL). Nima contrives an escape and the two of them flee the evil Hyksos before reaching the stronghold, carrying vital information that MUST be passed to Pharaoh. I found the start, fast-paced and exciting though it was, a little confusing. I wasn't sure if this was a continuation of another book in the series (it's not) or if I'd missed the set-up; I wasn't sure if these two characters were supposed to know each other or not. Although there's plenty of chemistry, there's only one sex scene - given the plotline of the story, it would have been impossible to staple in more, but some readers might be disappointed with that. But I liked that these characters fall in love with each other's NOT merely based on sexual attraction or chemistry (which they have, in spades) and that Nima really isn't sure what she's supposed to DO with her amulet. Enjoyed getting to see another Egyptian goddess (Renenuet) strut her stuff, as well as a little of Horus's trick. The pacing holds up well (though this is almost a novella, at under 200 pages), the ending is suitably exciting and (of course) there's a happily ever after.

Veronica Scott has a talent for forming characters. Nima and Kamin meet while captives of an invading army. Nima is a dancer of talent but little note who has been taken and for a General to dance and possibly die for the foreign god. Kamin is an Egyptian who the savvy Nima instantly recognizes as a warrior. Her bravery and natural sympathy which leads her to offer him some much needed water forms a bond and together they escape.  Scott takes us on a wild ride with the pair. Aided with the special magic and unique characteristics Scott grants them they have strange experiences that fit perfectly with the well crafted plot. There was never a point where I said, "That shouldn't or couldn't happen" because though some of the plot points are not of this world Scott forms them in a way that could be believed of THAT world.  While not my favorite Scott book - an author for whom I am now a huge fangirl - I could not give "Dancer of the Nile" less than five stars. There is literally nothing wrong with this novel. Not a thing I would change. Loved every moment of this paranormal/historical romance. Pick it up today.
