Scepter of Flint (The Lord Hani Mysteries Book 3) by N.L. Holmes – Review by Julie Johnson

Scepter of Flint (Lord Hani #3)Scepter of Flint by N.L. Holmes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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!

This was a wonderful historical mystery, and I was hooked from the first chapter. I’m definitely following this author because I couldn’t get enough of the writing style, the flow of the story, and the intricate details! The author does a magical job of bringing history to your home and paints with such vivid language that I felt transported there. Will we find out what is happening with the tomb robberies or are we left to draw our own conclusions? I am extremely excited to read the rest of this series and see what N.L. Holmes will bring to life next!

Book three in The Lord Hani Mysteries Series is set in ancient Egypt during the Great Jubilee of the Aten. Hani is an Egyptian Diplomat who sets out to uncover the mysterious tomb robberies that are taking place and the sudden deaths of witnesses. Faced with a seemingly corrupt police chief and his henchman does not deter Hani as he seeks to solve the mystery. He soon is faced with also trying to deal with a deadly plague that is descending on the kingdom and puts his life and that of his family at risk.

The author does an incredible job of transporting the reader back in time to ancient Egypt by drawing on her real-life archaeological background. She includes maps, a list of “gods” and a character list in the book as extra little touches to aid the reader in understanding the characters and the history of that time. This book can be read as a standalone or as a part of the series. A must read for anyone interested in historical mysteries.

Ancient Egyptian mystery
This is a wonderfully detailed historical mystery that has many twists and turns. The author delivers a story steeped in imagery and archeological detail while staying true to history. Lord Hani and his assistant Maya have their hands full with an outbreak running rampant across the kingdom while tombs are being robbed. They will need to draw on every asset but who can they trust? If you like historical thrillers, this is a worthy read.

This is the third book in this mystery series based on ancient Egypt. As a lover of historical fiction, I have become very enthralled with this series. This book reminded me of “Murder on the Nile” in some ways, but with more historical accuracy. I love her diligence of the excavation sites, artifacts and material remains to help not only solve the mystery but provide you with the knowledge of that era. I must also mention that her maps and “Glossary of Gods” she includes helps to know who and what she is describing. I was never familiar with the Egyptian Gods so that was a nice learning tool. If you are a fan of historical mysteries, please check out this book and the rest of her series. I think you will thoroughly enjoy them.

Wow just WOW!! This is the first book I have read by this wonderful author but I know it definitely will not be my last. I started with the 3rd book of this series and I thoroughly enjoyed it BUT I will be back tracking to read the first 2 books and then reading this again because apart from the enjoyment of reading them all I am sure it will further enhance the series for me. I mean a Great Mystery and Ancient Egypt who could resist that!
This book truly has it all happening, tomb raids and a plague just to name a couple things. With loads of twists and turns along the way creating an intriguing storyline, this is a page turner from start to finish that you simply do not want to miss! I loved the characters, the storyline and the way this amazing author had my imagination firing with every word.
