I wish to thank the author for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book is an ingenious YA novel that will pull at the reader’s imagination and keep them entranced throughout. Even when there is a moment of inaction, there’s descriptions of things going on, definition of character development and more that fills in the gaps seamlessly. And even though the main character is a girl, there’s enough going on that will have both genders enthralled.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Egypt Rising is a high energy YA adventure with an ancient Egyptian mystery and a touch of the paranormal. I love Egyptology, so picking up this book was a no-brainer. While so many people insist that everything has been discovered already on the Giza Plateau, I prefer to think otherwise. The Sphinx is a great mystery and has been the subject of interesting controversy of late in regards to its age. I love that author Stan Sch

Egypt Rising is the first book that I have read from this author and I believe that he did a really great job of spinning this story and bringing it to life. The writing style is smooth and effective and the story will begin to pull you in tightly by the end of the first chapter. The plot line and setting will have your imagination running wild while the characters and their unfolding stories will keep you reading long into the night.

For a young adult book, this story has it all. It is modern da
Being a teen has its moments, right? Being a teenaged girl living in Egypt, whose father has been called “Egypt’s own Indiana Jones” can be a mixed blessing. Olivia isn’t part of the popular, rich crowd at the school she attends (her father is a professor there), but she thrives on the history of Egypt, learning all she can from her father while on his digs. Not the kind of thing that makes you a hit with your classmates, but Olivia will soon find that all that knowledge will take her on an adve ...more
Oh Egypt...a land that I hope to visit one day when it's safe. My love for Egypt was what captivated me to this book. The premise sounded very promising: ancient secrets, Egyptian revolution, and a girl whose life was in danger. The story was very well told and had me flipping (or scrolling on my Nook) the pages. I found myself quite enjoying this book.

I was fascinated about the plots that Egypt Rising concentrated on: the Egyptian revolution and the secrets behind the Hall of Records. The stor
Finishing this book was painful. In fact, if I didn't need it for a challenge, I would've given up about 30 pages in. The concept was intriguing, but between the grammar/sentence structure, and lack of character depth, I thought I was reading something written by a junior high student. I love to read about the impossible, but this novel was just plain ridiculous. The main character was a god-like Mary Sue. I'm just glad it's over.
