About Amira Awaad

Amira Awaad is an author and academic dean. She enjoys reading crime, mystery, fantasy and sci-fi.

As a product of international upbringing, Awaad's writing is inspired by the diverse languages and peoples of the world. They intertwine with her ancient soul and pour out in her ebooks, Silently Yours, Lucienne, Living in the Shadows of the Pyramids, and The Ankhs series.

In them, Awaad carefully folds a piece of herself, opened for readers to see.

Today, Awaad lives as a daughter to two loving parents, a wife to a man she calls her "Prince" and a Mom to a young man she fondly describes as "the sunshine of her life".

The Ankhs is the type of story that is both rare to find and easy to admire. The cohesive plot intricately weaves sentiment, mystery, fantasy, and history together. The piece presents the beauty and mystery of the Egyptian civilization. I greatly enjoyed reading it !

Review by: Youssef Abul Yazid on Jan. 20, 2018 :
In my perspective, a very aspiring, and adhesive story to the mind. The events in the story first admit with the narrative of Torri, a young girl who is born into a family of two parents, and unknowing to her, she and her parents are associated with the "Djinn", descending from a race of very powerful beings that hide from the more normal humans. The daughter is raised in isolation even from her own birthplace, the city of Zinnat, and later in her life comes to realise, and discover her powers. As she does, her parents uncover secrets relating to her life, and the role that she has been destined to serve, which would ultimately bring her own life at risk.

The story also brings events of several different characters, and protagonists that have distinctly been in relation to Torri, and who may play an important part in the effort against the darkness that will come ahead.

Review by: Damian Charpentier on Jan. 19, 2018 :
The Ankhs tells us a story of ancient gods of Egypt and the mystical world of the Djinn in an incredible tale that entwines fantasy, history, and romance in a way that brings the reader to a deep connection to the forgotten humanity that we seem to overlook when we speak, read, or think about gods. The reader finds Torri, a child growing up around every day people, the people she would come to admire, help, and see but will quickly realize to them, that she is unknown. Their eyes would and will never acknowledge her very existence till one day when she discovers the secret that her parents had been holding back. This book not only personifies gods and demons but brings the audience closer than they ever could be reading the drawl of your generic history book. Granted the work may not yield a very accurate account of life in ancient Egypt but with constant twists, turns, and surprises, it inspires the beauty and mystery of ancient Egypt’s history and brings home the realization that seven thousand years later we still search for ways that we can connect to each other telling stories of mythology, romance, or fiction and having the reader develop a close relationship to the characters that connects us as humans understanding what love and sacrifice is. This is more than just a story of romance, fantasy, and history but a fairytale for adults with the same intensity as the Grimms and Gaiman alike.
