This is a great book it left me wanting more, ok the ending was a bit obvious but the plot is good and keeps your attention to the last page.
Carter was a much maligned man and his contribution to history has gone rather unnoticed in this modern world but this book had me wanting more and has re-awakened my love for Egypt.
A good read , a good story, a brilliant book

wasn't quite sure what to expect with this but what a find, accurate history [ i checked some of it thought not all], interesting characters, bit of old and new conspiracy around the story. I'll be carrying on with this series.

This is the first in a trilogy of adventures set in Egypt. It's fast paced, easy to read and hugely entertaining. The story is set in modern day Egypt, in fact it's right up to date with references to the post-Mubarak era and Tarir Square. At the same time I learnt a lot about ancient Egypt as the heroine solves an ancient puzzle. It's not a time travel story a la Labyrinth, but a very modern heroine unravelling an ancient puzzle. Really conjures up the heat of the place. Great Fun!
Be warned, there's no way you won't want to read the next book in the series!

Well, I was very excited about reading this book, as I love the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!). So, I read the 20-odd reviews and it sounded great! But then I started reading, and nothing much happened.... and it read like an Egyptian tourist guide...and still nothing happened... So what about all of those fantastic reviews about a "gripping novel that kept me up all night"? Well, having sifted through all of the reviews to date, MOST of the reviewers have ONLY reviewed this book or books by this author... Hmmmm.... Very suspicious, eh? So, is this another one of those amazon review set-ups, where the author gets friends and family to give favourable reviews of the book, so that gullible people like me will buy it? You decide. But I wish amazon would find a way to stop this kind of behaviour, if this is another example of it, as it now makes a lot of the amazon "reviews" rather suspicious. I will now only be buying books by well-known authors, personally.

Overall I was disappointed by this book.
Although the standard of English is better than many books one buys these days, and it has clearly been proof read and corrected rather than just spell checked, I found the story telling pedestrian, taking pages to progress the plot where other writers would take a few paragraphs. Also it ended just when it was getting properly interesting and I came to the conclusion that this is because it has been published as a lead-in to get you to buy the next book in the series, which presumably finishes the story begun here. I guess the pricing at just 99p should have given me the clue. Had the whole of this story been published as a single volume at a higher price I would likely have bought more of the authors works, but as it is I'm just disappointed enough that I won't make further investment.

Format: Paperback
This is a terrific book to get into for anyone interested in visiting Egypt, adventure or romance. The central mystery following on from the chance discovery of some hieroglyphics hidden away by Carter keeps the story moving along at a good pace. But the book is enlivened by Fiona Deal's knowledge of Egypt and its ancient mythology.

I've been on a tourist vacation visiting the sites in and around Cairo and along the Nile and recognised various places mentioned. However, the additional insights which the author provides were a joy and showed the research and level of interest sparked by the subject matter. The detailed information never seemed to deter from the pace demanded by the storyline.

The style was engaging and down to earth with occasional poetic touches: "hills riddled with holes like a mountainous Swiss cheese made of mellow gold rock". It also described the lives of the ordinary people against the background of current events in Egypt as it goes through its post-revolutionary days providing a `behind the scenes' look beyond the tourist attractions. There is an acknowledgment to the spirit of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft, not a bad comparison. Could be a call to Hollywood for this feminine version!

The main character, Meredith, does lurch from crisis to crisis and enjoys all the attributes of the romantic heroine.
Read it. It will enhance your holiday, and, if you're not planning on visiting Egypt, you'll wish you were.

I have now read the first three books in this set and though some of the exploits are a bit far fetched, I have enjoyed reading about places that I have visited. The annoying thing for me though are the number of spelling mistakes and incorrect words used so I have to ask are these books not checked before printing? It spoilt it a bit but I started reading the first one whilst on holiday in Egypt and I think they make ideal stories to read on holiday as they are fairly easy going.

I loved this book! Such a good read. Some books take some several pages to hook you but Fiona's book got me at page one. If you love a bit of history, a chuckle or two as well as some adventure then this is for you. I highly recommend it.
