Recommends it for: Middle grade boys, Egypt fans
Liman once knew his destiny and his fate as a future ruler of Egypt. That is, until a great tragedy befalls his family. He's forced to flee from his land and collapses, knocking the recollections of his previous life away from his thoughts. He's raised to be a simple fisherman and is happy with his life, until one bitter girl sets the gears in motion for his epic journey that involves demons, sacred Scrolls, hellhounds, and a rightful place as leader of Egypt.

I got this book from the author's publicist. This is an honest review. I am not getting paid.

First off, I want to thank the author for sending me this book. Let's get to it.

The good points:
- This novel is one of a kind. You don't really read a lot of fantasy novels set in ancient Egypt; just that fact was a plus for me. It's something very different.
- The author does a really good job at setting the world and I really felt as if I was there.
- This book is packed with action and mak

This book was so much better than I expected!!!

First of all, I love ancient Egypt, so this book really pulled me in even before I started it. When the editor sent us the email requesting us to review it, I was like "holy yes I am reading this!!!" However, I was pretty skeptical, especially because it seemed to be a children's read. T'was not so!

This book was really good! It was fast paced and the story was really engaging. It wasn't the greatest piece of literature, but it was still really good.

Disclaimer: This book was provided for me in return of an honest review. I was not paid to do this review, except for receiving a copy of the book.

When the publicist pitched the synopsis to me I was really intrigued and agreed to read and review the book. It was described as a book with comedic and dramatic elements, and most of all, featured an Egyptian theme. I haven't read too many books with Egyptian themes, so I was really interested in giving this one a try. This was one genre of fantasy I

This book is one of a kind. At least, I don't own anything like it! On my shelf, it stands out due to its unique plot. I am 19 years old, and although I did enjoy it for its constant action that somewhat made it feel like watching a movie, this book is definitely more for ages 11-14 or so. Although the protagonist, Liman, is a boy in his late teens, the writing style followed more of a middle grade feel.
I'm just going to break down my likes and dislikes.

Got my copy from the author in July. It took me a little while to get to it because of work. I really enjoyed reading this book. It kept me on. It's really entertaining.

On a scale of 1 to 10:
- Book cover: 8/10
It’s a paperback. I personally prefer hard cover but the most important is the story.
This cover has a very strong illustration of the main character, looking rough and shaving his head, like he’s on a mission. I like the cover.

- Story: 9/10
You have all the great elements that make a good

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It has really intriguing mystical elements as well as some of the more traditional historical aspects of Egypt. All in all it was a good read, though I will warn that it does leave you hanging on for the next book in a sort of 'what the heck?' kind of way.

Though still I am looking forwards to checking out the next book in this story line to see where the author takes Liman as well as the rest of her characters.
