Many times when a book is picked up for the first time in the middle of a series, it can be difficult to navigate what has been missed out on. This being the third book in the series and not having read the other two previous books, I wasn’t sure if I could follow the story or not. However, the author does a great job of “catching up” the reader making this book able to be a stand alone. I’ll be looking forward to going back and reading the first two books though since finishing this one!
This book is set in Egypt, not a setting you see a lot in today’s literature and features tomb robbing and the plague. Lord Hani is tasked with finding out who’s behind all the robberies while trying to keep everyone safe from the plague. It can be a difficult job when his witnesses keep coming up dead!!
Enjoy this fantastic historical read!
