Publisher's Summary

Two stones changed the course of history before; it’s time for a repeat performance.

The sands of Egypt harbour many untold tales, it’s part of the intrigue that draws archaeologists and tourists alike to marvel its sights and get a taste of its secrets. It’s a discovery of the modern age for archaeologists, Tim Adams and Evelyn Davidson, when they find two tablets in the shadows of the Great Pyramids at Giza.

It’s a sign of the times....

What they dust off these ancient relics is the basis of quickly unravelling governments and religions. To slot the pieces of this complicated puzzle together, Tim and Evelyn must travel back to antiquity itself, where religion and law went hand in hand. Any act of defiance against law or faith decided on someone’s fate - or their afterlife. From delving into the threads of the original Bible, Tim and Evelyn find themselves on the cusp of understanding the very essence of human existence.

Time blurs when blazing the trail of knowledge.

It can lead them to making history - or into great danger.

Simply awful performance and juvenile story.

I really tried to get past the reader, but.....you have got to be kidding me....where do I start? Mooooonnnnnnnooooootone. Some interest and enthusiasm, please? The female main character sounds, seriously, like a 14 year old in how whiny and subservient her voice is portrayed. I simply couldn’t relate to this character that is supposed to be an Archaeologist working at the great pyramid in Egypt who sounds like a kid down the street....and, yet, the absolute worst part of the performance (reading....semi-literately) was mis-pronunciations every other minute. Here are a few...’relished’....’archaeology’‘.....’Tutankhamen’.....supposedly from doctorate level archaeologists who are the ‘cream of the crop’ working at the Great Pyramid. To the author, I gave your story two stars because I simply could not listen to the awful narration beyond an hour....do yourself a favor and find a quality performer next time. In order to suspend disbelief and enjoy the story it takes a real ‘storyteller’. To the performer....really, you read an archaeology novel and can’t pronounce archaeology and Tutankhamen? Dude!

Awful Performance

I liked the premise of this story and really wanted to enjoy it. I got about 40 minutes in before I couldn’t take it anymore. The narrator’s monotone reading style, awkward sentence pacing and constant mispronunciations were just unbearable.
Do not recommend.
I want my credit back.
