Flight to Egypt Leads to Healing and Heartache
The “Statue of Ku” by Tricia Stewart Shiu, the second in a series of fantasy books for young adults, finds 18-year-old Hillary and Moa flying to Egypt to reclaim Moa’s family heirloom and while doing so learns about magic, healing and sacrifice while dealing with love and heartache.
Readers are easily drawn into the plot by the writing craft of Shiu as excitement in the plot quickly unfolds and pushes the reader quickly to a dramatic ending. I also enjoyed the illustrations which we well synced with the story line.
The author is a screenwriter, playwright and author who excels in writing mystical, fantasy stories. You will enjoy the “Statue of Ku,” even if you haven’t read “Moa.” A meaningful as well as enjoyable story.
