Who will become a mummy...

It's 1324 BC in Egypt - the era of King Tut. The high priest Nebamun and his brother Iramen, the embalmer, are standing ready at the embalming slab.

Nebamun feels trapped and surrounded by death. Will he ever be able to escape his duty and be happy?

He could have lived a happy life, but today he must mummify a young woman and her daughter, drowned in the Nile reeds.

Mother and daughter will meet in the afterlife...


What will they find in the tomb...

It's 1874 AD, in Luxor, Egypt. Abdul and Karim, tomb-robbing brothers, stand knee-deep in the riches of ancient Egypt.

Abdul wants a new life, out of the dark, dismal tombs, and into the light.

Karim wants to become rich selling the possessions of the dead...

These characters' lives are separated by thousands of years, and yet they are each connected by mysterious forces.

Luxor: Book of Past Lives takes you into the ancient past, containing details gleaned from countless historical accounts. It is a riveting tale of violence and greed, riches and poverty, and good and evil in the time of the pharaohs and beyond.
