's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: first-reads

** spoiler alert ** I received a proof copy of this book through a GoodReads giveaway as a First Reads winner.

Let me just say that I *LOVED* this book! I'm a huge fan of historical fiction and Ancient Egypt and The Dagger of Isis got me hook, line, and sinker from the very first page. It's a great book, and could be read as a standalone novel as well- I haven't read The First Pharaoh, the first book in the trilogy- but I immediately wanted to purchase it because this one is just THAT GOOD.

A few parts of the book were a little transparent- I saw the pairing off of Meryt & Herihor and Nubiti & Bakht right away- but it didn't detract at all from the story for me. I'm looking forward to the third book immensely, and would recommend The Dagger of Isis to anyone who is a fan of historical fiction and Ancient Egypt.
