Josslyn Halliday wants her sisters returned safely. The three siblings are close, and since she is the oldest, it is up to her to rescue them.
When the loud, obnoxious woman demands the release of her sisters¸ Seth-Aziz is less than impressed with the dusty, scruffy-looking woman, but he is terribly hungry, and makes a pledge he later regrets.
Joss is spooked when a mysterious man appears on her hotel balcony. His menacing presence frightens her, but he does pass on a few helpful clues as to where she can find her sisters before he slips away again into the darkness. Crossing to the West bank of the Nile, Joss sets off on a fateful journey that, unknown to her, has long been prophesized. Thus, begins her adventurous journey as she unwittingly becomes a crucial linchpin in a fierce battle for supremacy that has raged thousands of years.
This book started off being a bit difficult for me to really get into. There were quite a few unknown Egyptian words with which I needed to become familiar. However, after that somewhat rocky start, the story became increasingly mesmerizing and soon I found I was caught up in the drama and suspense of the powerful immortals. This book stands up well on its own, but I wish I had read the other two previous books, as well. The intimate scenes between Josslyn and Seth sizzle. There is plenty of tension and several unexpectedly tender moments. Those readers well-versed in Egyptian mythology will surely love this entire series. For the rest of us, it is an opportunity to get lost in the excitement of an adventure in a distant, dusty land amid an ornate underground sanctuary.
