Undercover agent Omar Zagouri has been ordered to Giza. A prominent Egyptologist was murdered, and a priceless artifact—the only complete version of the Book of the Dead—is missing. Omar is still reeling from the recent disappearance of his girlfriend, Mia Golding, but he puts his quest to find her on hold to track down the lost piece of history.
Omar’s mission is not just to locate the sacred book; he must also rescue the two archaeologists kidnapped and forced to translate its hieroglyphics under threat of death. Their kidnapper is determined to discover the text’s rumored explosive revelation: that Moses did not receive the Ten Commandments from God but instead copied them from the Egyptians. Though Omar’s need to find Mia grows more urgent, he must focus on finding the enemy who will stop at nothing to ignite a controversy that will change history, and the world, forever.
I find Hatshepsut’s story fascinating! Once again I need to thank Heather Moore for inspiring me to study an aspect of history I knew absolutely nothing about! Shortly after I began reading this story I was searching the internet to find out who this lost she-king was. Heather brought Hatshepsut’s story to life for me. I loved the characters of Hatshepsut’s time and was completely absorbed in their lives. Heather has a way of bringing any time period to life and helping me imagine what it would have been like to live during that time. Maybe I am better suited for a different time. I don’t love the character of Omar. Heather does a great job of making his story suspenseful and full of action. I just just don’t care for Omar that much. I think I would have preferred to have the entire book set in ancient Egyptian times. Regardless, the story is breathtaking. I highly recommend it!!!! I am grateful for the author notes at the end that helped me sort out fact from fiction.
Rating: 4 Stars – Great book!
