Story teller par excellence, T.L. HIGLEY transports the reader into the revived world of Ancient Egypt within the City of the Dead.
Hemiunu or Hemi, is the main character of this exciting read.As the main architect and Grand Vizier of Khufu, he is overseeing the construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
An incident, which happened a decade ago, comes back to haunt him and his king, Khufu. Khufu’s wife Merit and another good friend are murdered and a gold mask is placed on their faces. In addition, one of their fingers is cut off, preventing them in going into the afterlife whole and pure.
We follow Hemi in his dangerous quest for justice. As the plot thickens, Hemi is wrongly accused of snuffing out these “friends”.
Neferet, who belongs to the People of the One, falls in love with him and gets involved in a whirlwind - world of intrigue, poison and treason. We run with them from the bowels of the pyramid to the marshes of the Nile, to the workmen’s villages, to the Palace of Khufu, the Sun God Ra, and into the desert.
Who killed their friends and why? In this page turner, Higley has succeeded in building up the suspense until the last page. Reserve some precious time for this novel because you will not be able to put it down once you start reading it.
Higley has thoroughly researched how life must have been at the time of the Ancient Egyptians. The settings, the mood, the weather, the inundations, crocodiles, hippopotamuses, tombs and mastabas, are all very credible. As well, the characters become so familiar that you believe them true to life.
Definitely, an exciting thriller for all. An unmissable read.
