Book Review of Escape From Ancient Egypt

About the book

When being stuck in the past has a whole new meaning...

What if your worst enemy sent you on a one-way ticket to the past? Worse, later he shows up and tries to play match-maker with a dominant historical figure while all of history and the future are on the line? Survival is just one problem, but then add your friends into the mix...

Following an intense battle between the Indians and the Crackedskulls, Neiko and her comrades enjoy victory while her enemies suffer a crushing defeat. Victory is short lived for Neiko when Francesco pays her a visit at her home and sends her away in order to collect on his threat of revenge. She is banished into the ancient world of ancient Egypt during the reign of Ramesses II the Great on a one way ticket.

Lost and trapped in this ancient world, it doesn't take very long for trouble to find her. Taken by a rich man, she is reunited with three of her friends that had been missing, and an eleven-year-old mystery is finally solved, but one of Neiko's friends is still unaccounted for. After escaping from the rich man and journeying to Thebes, Neiko and her comrades have actually jumped from the pan and into the fire.

Things go horribly awry when Pharaoh finds out about Neiko and becomes infatuated with her. Francesco comes to Egypt on orders to bring her back, but he has other plans. Can Neiko and her friends thwart Francesco, return to the 21st century, and escape from the past and one of the greatest kings that ever lived?

My Review

The book captivated me from the very beginning as it was filled with action, adventure and time travels. Wow! It’s such an amazing book to start reading about all the fantasy and imaginary world.

With the story plotted in the backdrop of ancient Egypt Neiko realises that she hasn’t seen a car in the area since the moment she time travelled to the place. And she is captured as a slave and put in dungeons with three other Indians, as it used to happen in the old days.

What I loved about the story was the mystery that surrounds it and an eerie feeling of what could happen next made the story captivating and interesting and the pace of the story was smooth.
But with lot of characters being added every now and then made it a bit confusing as to who is doing what and why at a point in the story but it didn’t hamper the story. As such I didn’t have the chance to read the first part of the novel it took me a while to understand what was happening.

Overall it is a great story! I wish the teenagers will love the plot.
