This is a well-researched book and you will learn some Egyptian words while reading it. I found this very interesting.
The main character doesn’t look like me at all so I wasn’t able to imagine myself as her, but the author did a great job of in description. All I can say is I’m not tall and lean with an angular face and dark hair long enough to brush the waistband of my pants when pulled back in a ponytail. The research done shows in the work and was very thorough, while the descriptions are clear enough that this should be a graphic novel. Even though the characters are adults, the way subject matter is handled well and this is safe for early teens. This story might help inspire a new generation of Indiana Jones wannabes.
It is a season of waning and little is certain. Akhet, The Inundation. The world is changing, Gods of old stir, and their agents work behind the scenes to fulfill their masters' commands.
