SWORD OF ANUBIS
ISBN # 978-1-897559-38-3
Rating: 3 Cups
India’s parents were murdered by Nicolai Kesslanski. She now lives with her grandfather and helps him run his Parisian shop.
Morgan’s father was also murdered by Kesslanski and he has been tracking him to exact justice. His search has led him to Paris, and India.
Nicolai Kesslanski is nearly unstoppable. Only the legendary Sword of Anubis and an ancient Egyptian book of the dead can destroy him. A murderous act brings those two items and their guardians together, but Nicolai may yet evade his fate.
The setting is appropriately chaotic; Paris just before the revolution. The story could use a bit more depth; it is a little thin on plot. I never learned exactly what Nicolai was, but Morgan’s pursuit of him was full of suspense and excitement. The author captured the spirit of the chase. The characters were sympathetic and resourceful. The ending is a bit disconcerting, especially after the visit of the god Anubis.
