- Description from Goodreads
I'm pretty excited about this one; I've been a fan of ancient Egypt for quite a few years now, and I'm sure that the author did some great research for this book to happen. I've been reading more books with romance/ romantic themes in them recently, and I'm kind of excited about that popping up too. I have the ARC on the way, and I'll be sure to post a review as soon as I finish!
