Faye Summer has been haunted by a three-thousand-year-old-murdered Egyptian Queen, one of the five daughters of Nefertiti and the doomed pharaoh Akhenaton, since she was a young girl…and has glimpsed her desperate ghostly face in darkened mirrors and heard her whispers in her dreams. Whispers begging for Faye’s help in uncovering the true story of her and her family’s long ago disappearances and deaths, their terrible fate, so the ghost would no longer be damned to her eternal wandering.
On that grave quest, Faye and her husband, Nick, reluctantly travel to Egypt and among the ancient pyramids, sparkling hot sands and the ghosts of the past they discover a truth far worse than they could have imagined…and end up fighting for their own survival.

In the same vein as Egyptian Heart as far as time (Pharaonic/modern), and explores Nefertiti in greater depth. Characters are believable and well developed. Story moves along well, and maintains reader's interest easily.
KC Cowan does a creditable job if audio interpretation, but a little too laid back for my personal taste.
A interesting, suspenseful and imaginative story intertwining present day with Ancient Egypt. The author's story is centred around the mysterious disappearance from history of King Tut's wife and the death of Nephertiti and her children, it is a tale of discovery set in the modern day but interweaved with ghostly happening and visions of the past. The narrator did a good job of expressing emotion but I would have liked more delineation between the different characters and male and female voices. This story has intrigue, mystery, romance, suspense, great historical facts and even some occult, all wound together in an enjoyable ghostly adventure. I received the audiobook in exchange for my honest opinion.
I really enjoyed this book. I listened to the Audible version, and even though I don't remember the narrator differentiating between voices as much as I usually like, I still enjoyed her narration. Maybe because it just felt like someone reading a book to me, without trying too hard, so it seemed effortless. I would actually listen to more books narrated by KC Cowan for this reason.
I liked the story a lot, too. I'm interested in anything pertaining to Egypt, and that is what originally made me choose this book. It was an interesting, Egyptian, paranormal mystery that read steadily and kept me engaged. One thing I found refreshing about this book is the relationship between the main characters: Faye and her husband Nick. It was nice to read a book about a married couple that loved each other, were passionate, and had a good relationship (despite Faye's idiosyncrasies like seeing ghosts). I would definitely check out more books by this author, and recommend this book to anyone who likes paranormal books or has a fascination with Egypt.
