Inge H. Borg’s 5-Book Series “Legends of the Winged Scarab” about lost and rediscovered treasures of Ancient Egypt spans from true Historical Fiction in the First Dynasty in 3080 BC to its modern-day thriller/adventure sequels which start out with the Arab Spring in 2012 through an apocalyptic world in 2016 AD.
The series takes the protagonists from Boston to Cairo, from Crete to Venezuela and back to Egypt. While they are fictional characters, many real places and events are incorporated through meticulous research. The ‘wondrous crystals’ in the Lost Labyrinth of Egypt lend a mythical aspect whereas the last book could portend a real catastrophe for Egypt through the construction of a huge dam on the Blue Nile, causing serious friction between Egypt and Ethiopia.
The series is kept fresh by unexpected twists and turns throughout, and loyal readers are already asking for more.
