1550 BCE

Betrayed, murdered, and buried without proper ceremony, Egyptian warrior Periseneb is doomed to roam the gray deserts of the dead as a ghost for all eternity.

But then the goddess of truth offers him a bargain: return to the world of the living as her champion for 30 days. If he completes his mission, he'll be guaranteed entry into Paradise. Periseneb agrees to the bargain but, when he returns to the living world, two hundred years have passed and nothing is quite as he expected.

Neithamun is a woman fighting to hang onto her family's estate against an unscrupulous nobleman who desires the land as well as the lady. All seems lost until a mysterious yet appealing ex-soldier, Periseneb, appears out of nowhere to help her fight off the noble's repeated attacks.

Meanwhile, Periseneb's thirty days are rushing by, and he's powerless against the growing attraction between himself and Neithamun. But their love can never be. For his Fate is to return to the Afterlife, and Death cannot wed with Life...

Hauntingly good My biggest problem with Ms. Scott's "Nile" books (besides that there aren't enough of them), is I feel stupid not knowing how to pronounces the names of the main characters. Periseneb was a warrior, doomed to roam the underworld forever, returned to life 200 years after his birth by the Goddess Ma'at, to fulfill a 30 days mission. Neithamun is the last surviving owner of a once thriving estate, struggling to hang on against a greedy neighbor - but this petty struggle, and the growing love and respect between Periseneb can't be why the Goddess of Truth reembodied a ghost. Hint: It's not. Beautifully written, and with tension that keeps building until a very exciting and satisfying climax, this is a wonderful read. If you enjoy historical fiction with a touch of the supernatural, especially if you're a little weary of Dukes and Comtes, this is a fabulous book and series. You don't have to read them all (but you'll want to).
