Review by: S.W. Lothian on March 24, 2014 :
This was quite a surprising and fun read.

It’s a short read that has a very clever premise, in which the author has cleverly made herself part of the story.

It seems that Ms Carpinello has been lucky enough to gain access to some long lost scrolls, which are said to contain actual recollections from Tutankhamen himself. The novella is an interpretation of the mysterious scrolls which were written long ago, but had been missing until recently.

The words are said to be from the actual spirit of the deceased Pharaoh. What I liked about this book was that it gives a glimpse into the everyday life of Tut, before and after his rise to Pharaoh. It was like a fly on the wall peek at his life without it just being part of a much larger plot. I think it’s a great way to get to know a character and there were plenty of interesting facts and cool snippets of information in there as well.

My guess is that this is a wonderful strategy by the author to familiarise readers with Tut before a full-on book is released.

Am I right? Time will tell?

My bottom line: I really enjoyed this one and I look forward to the ‘predicted’ Tut book.

Note: I don’t claim to be a pro-reviewer, I am a reader. My reviews are based on my personal thoughts around the story that the book is trying to tell. I try to focus on the story (which is the reason I read) rather than dissect the book and pass comment on typos, writing style or structure.

A free copy of this book was provided to me by the author for a fair and honest review.
