Boston University graduate Jayna Monroe lies near death in a remote tomb of the Great King Amony. She fell into the area she currently remains with no one else nearby to rescue her. Knowing she will die soon, Jayna knows no one will mourn her parting. She stoically interprets the hieroglyphics that explain that Amony's queen killed him.
Not too long after that, Jayna fades only to revive at the court of Amony in the body of the queen also named Jayna. The Egyptologist vows to stop the queen and her fellow conspirators from murdering Amony. As she fails to persuade Amony about the danger he faces, Jayna looks more and more like the person most likely to assassinate the pharaoh. Meanwhile, Jayna falls in love with Amony and now is even willing to risk her life to keep him safe.
ETCHED IN STONE is a pleasant historical fiction time travel work with some romance elements in the plot. The enticing story line centers on Jayna's efforts to keep Amony safe. Though a student of Egyptology, Jayna adjusts too easily to her new world. She is a great character for readers to follow as she has one adventure after another. The support cast, including Amony, provide period depth with tidbits about Ancient Egypt and help the audience understand Jayna better. Dimitri Eann furnishes fans of Ancient historical tales with a well-written, fun to read novel.
