Egypt has suffered the 10 plagues promised by Moses.
The Egyptian army rushes into the desert to cut off the Hebrews' escape while the last remaining court magician has been given one final edict:
"The curse of death that has befallen the firstborn son of Pharaoh must be reversed...or else."
Be careful what you ask for....

Yes, I would. I enjoy horror and zombie books and this could be an origin story. It gives the reader a brief glimpse into the mind of a zombie at times.
Of course the royal wizard is my favorite character!! You'll just have to read it to find out why. No spoilers here!
Since he is the writer, he knows the characters better than anyone. He can portray their emotions better than a narrator that doesn't know the book.
You've all heard of Moses, this is what happens after he left Egypt!
Hope there is a second book and this is just the horigin (horror origin) story that gets it all started! I really enjoyed it!
yes, it is a interesting short story on how man can bring doom down upon all over revenge and hatred
When the magician is forced to help the prince. Its a very bad outcome.
First and foremost it was great to actually hear the author tell the story.
As a short story, yes, but even as a full length book it would be hard not to listen in one setting as the story is building into what could be a fast paced story.
yes if you like TW Brown you will like this

look forward to hearing more from TW Brown
to short to be s film
i hope this is a start to a new series

I always have a difficult time reviewing short novellas. Because it is hard to say very much without giving everything away. I will do my best.
This is a story set in ancient Egypt. The Pharaoh’s so has died from a curse from Moses and the Hebrews. Now it is up the Pharaoh’s last remaining magician to remove the curse and return life to young Prince. This he was able to do, but at a great cost.
Nothing really stood out to me as being especially good or bad about the story itself. It was a quick straight forward listen with a fairly original story line. Was too short to keep me guessing about anything.
I do think that Brown has opened a can of worms with this story that deserves to be explored more thoroughly. I think there could be a great story in the war on Moses and the Hebrews was expanded. And the aftermath of what happen here to the Egyptian empire.
If you are a fan of TW Brown’s DEAD series. I would bet that you will like this. It oozes with his writing style and even some gore.
I believe that this is author T. W. Brown’s first time narrating an audiobook. While the performance wasn’t bad, it wasn’t superb either. Brown sounded very flat, as in not a whole lot of anything but reading the words of the story. Some listeners have a problem with this, sometime I do as well. Generally narrators will inject emotion by fluctuating their tone, speed, inflection, etc. I did hear a subtle hiss in the background that was more distracting than anything else.
