Archeologist Jasmine Devi is ecstatic to be living her dream
- searching for artifacts inside the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Her parents were Egyptologists, and her life centers around
her love of Egyptian history. The discovery of a peridot
bracelet in one of the pyramid's side chambers is an
unexpected and thrilling find. What she doesnít expect is
its power to draw a real Egyptian king into her time.
Jasmineís peridot bracelet wraps around her wrist, King
Okpara is tugged through time to be at her side. Convincing
her to travel back with him to be his queen is going to be a
challenge. Unfortunately, without her at his side, heíll be
unable to return home, leaving Egypt without a king and
forever altering history.
thereís Mason. Heís had the hots for Jasmine for years.
Crazed obsession and gun ownership, though, doesnít usually
mix well, and itís no exception in this tale.
I had very
high hopes for Uncovering Egypt. Ancient Egypt
is provocative all on its own, and adding in an intriguing
premise and sex with a pharaoh, it should have been an
exciting, non-stop story. Instead, itís a rather mediocre
read. Plenty of sex and a jealous would-be boyfriend are not
enough to redeem this plot. Jasmine Devi is a shallow
character whose emotions are never fully delved into, and
consequently, her actions are met with this readerís shrug.
Mason's nonchalant response to the pharaoh, time travel, and
every other surreal word spilling from Jasmine's mouth rings
hollow. The best I can say is that artwork for
Uncovering Egypt is exquisite. Cover artist Natalie
Winter deserves two thumbs up.
