When an unexpected find is made in the deserts east of Luxor, Chyna Stone and the Found History team are brought in to help with the excavation of the Chambers of Ay. As they explore the underground maze of forgotten corridors and hidden passageways, they become keenly aware that there is much more to this discovery than meets the eye. A discovery that reaches down through the ages.
It's called the Egyptian Book of Life - an ancient, and priceless text dating back to the rule of the Pharaoh Djoser - and Chyna and her team might just have stumbled upon a clue to its final location. Now hot on the trail, Chyna and her team travel through Egypt and Turkey and parts unknown, soon coming into contact with a secret society of men who are sworn to protect the secret of the Book of Life and its location. But when treachery is discovered among her team, Chyna will find herself on the run...all while following a cryptic trail of clues that will lead to the Book of Life...or to her death.
But Chyna Stone is no ordinary archaeologist - she's an adventurer through and through - and she will do all she can to preserve history and to protect the lives of those she cares most about...all while uncovering the true secret of The Mummy Codex.

"Epic and awesome!" (J.T. Cross, best-selling author of Beneath the Deep)
"K.T. Tomb is a wonderful new voice in adventure fiction." (Aiden James, best-selling author of Plague of Coins)
The tale begins in the time following Tut's death and sets the importance of The Book of Life. Fast forward to present day and the archaeologists of the Found History team led by Chyna Stone. Danger, adventure and romance ensue. The publisher's summary will give you enough hints without spoilers. It's an entertaining novella, worth the time and money. I found it perfect for one session listening while doing other tasks.
I'm sorry, but Heather Ross just didn't seem like a good fit here. I feel that she would be great for a Sophie Kinsella or Kasey Michaels novel, but just too thoughtlessly perky for this series.
I like that this series is shorter books. Its good to have something to fill in with when i am done with one of my longer audiobooks, but don't want to start a new one until a Monday or something.
These stories themselves are fun, but i wonder about some of the historical accuracy. Some of the language seems very cliche, but overall i enjoy the banter of the main characters. I will definately continue on with this series.
"A fascinating adventure!"
Yes, I will listen to The Mummy Codex again in the not so distant future because I enjoyed it immensely.
I am fascinated with the historical storyline and then how it becomes entwined with the present day.
The reading by Heather Ross was seamless and her pronunciation of the many Egyptian names of people and places was superb. I particularly liked Ankhesenamun and how alike in many ways she was to Chyna as a strong intelligent woman of her time.
I wish the books by K T Tomb were longer and I look forward to the next one.
