Book Review - City of the Dead

Set in ancient Egypt, City of the Dead is set against a fascinating backdrop - the building of the Great Pyramid of Giza. The story is told from the perspective of Hemiunu, the brains behind the design and construction of one of the most impressive manmade structures ever built. As his masterpiece rises into the sky, Hemi is tormented by a horrible secret from his past, and the very real threat of a killer who is picking off his friends one by one.

Book two in T.L. Higley’s Seven Wonders series is absolutely breathtaking. I was transported into ancient Egypt, from the inner rooms of Pharaoh’s palace to the stifling heat of the desert and the tremendous undertaking as the pyramid is built. This book has it all – mystery, intrigue, romance, a breathtaking setting, and characters you feel like you know. And throughout it all, the spiritual element is woven intricately into the plot, which is the sign of an excellent inspirational novel by my definition. I highly recommend this book.
