really liked it
bookshelves: 2008
Read in October, 2008

The old saying, "You can't judge a book by it's cover", definitely applies here! This is not a book you want to take to the gym because the cover is so cheesy, but the story is fantastic! It is part "Goose Girl" and part "Scarlet Pimpernel" - escapism at it's best! I give it four stars instead of five because of its highly inaccurate portrayal of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III, but the story itself deserves five.
