I want to start by saying thank you to Edelweiss and Ingram Publisher Services for granting me the opportunity to read this remarkable book. This is the story of Sesha and Ky, who are the children of the Physician to the Pharoah. Their parents are killed under questionable circumstances, and doing what they can to survive on their own until they are caught by the palace guards. Once in the palace, the Pharoah allows Sesha to continue her studies and asks her to find the missing scroll her father was working on before he died. With danger at every turn and suspects around every corner, Sesha and Ky must figure out who they can trust. They must do so quickly, or they will meet the same questionable end their parents did.
What I enjoyed about this story is the scroll is based on an actual artifact. The amount of research done in this story is fantastic. While I love stories based on Egyptian history, I loved the attention to detail. There was a headstrong lead character in Sesha, who has her wits about her and is a great judge of character. I thought this was a fascinating start to a series, even though the ending was a bit abrupt.
