A wonderfully sweet, historically-accurate Victorian Egyptian exploration, with ancient gods and buried secrets and deep loyalties, and a plucky American girl raised on the frontier -- not afraid to wear trousers and six-guns on a desert expedition, even if it scandalizes her British uncle. :->

If you liked the movie 'The Mummy,' this is basically the same setting, though a rather different story.

Good reading for those interested in archeaolgy and the ancient Egyptians. A little too much fantasy for my tastes, but good characteriztion & setting.

Very good writing; good story. Not exactly what I expected but the story wasn't any worse for that.

This book was a little slow getting into the action but overall was a good read. Would recommend to others.

This started out as pretty much a mystery, and the fantasy part only comes in at the end. A little slow at first, rather plodding in the middle but with enough puzzles to keep the reader interested. Then the pace steps up with the discovery of the pyramid and takes you into a fantasy world to a nice neat ending, but I was rather miffed at the abruptness of it and wish Linkskold could have fleshed out the ending a little more. Still and all, another example of Lindskold's solid writing.

Intrepid young Jenny Benet, a recently orphaned American girl who was raised on the Wild West frontier and educated at a Boston finishing school, has come to Egypt in company with her uncle, Neville Hawthorne, a British archeologist. They're part of a team hunting for the legendary Buried Pyramid, the tomb of the pharaoh Neferankhotep--who may also have been Moses the Lawgiver . . .
But shadowing their party is another, hoping to take over any discoveries Hawthorne and his niece might make. And this other party will stop at nothing. Then Jenny and Hawthorne start getting mysterious messages signed by 'The Sphinx,' and things start getting really interesting.

The first part of the book was pretty good. The last half was rather far-fetched. Not the best book I ever read.
