Wordy archeological adventure following a group opening an unknown tomb. If you can get past the first couple of chapters it is a pretty good read. The story does pick up speed and become a decent thriller type story and other than the beginnng being so slow this was an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
If you like reading about ancient Egypt, the Queens and Kings of long ago, their riches and their treasures, buried with them in pyramids, the archaeologists who long to discover them and the thieves who try to steal everything, then you will like this story. Travel along with Carl Langley, a group of others and a mysterious cat who have discovered a six-sided pyramid and the maze like passages underneath. Some things are better left alone and the most evil sometimes get what they deserve. Extremely descriptive, you feel as if you are in the desert with the heat, sun and sand, and the deep, dark tunnels of the numerous passages of the unique pyramid. Would definitely recommend to others.
The main issue I had with this book was, it wasn't as thrilling as I had expected it should be. Perhaps I had been watching 'The Mummy' too many times that I thought Denibus Ar would somehow match its 'wow' factor though not entirely. When the author described the story as supernatural thriller, I anticipated scary mummies, angry Pharaohs, dirty scandals and acts of betrayal happening that give rise to the six-sided pyramid. I was a bit disappointed because the prologue somehow gave me that vague impression of how 'supernatural' everything would be like, which turned out to be unremarkable. On the bright side, I was impressed by the author's knowledge of the Egyptian history and legends. I had to admit that I had hard times trying to catch up with the archaeological terms, the scene descriptions and everything in between. At some point also, in one particular chapter, I thought I had a private literary tour experience around the site exclusively delivered by Prof. Chesla with her long explanation of the history. Everything was quite believable and convincing, so the author had truly done a great job with that.
