Must get educated first on Egyptian Gods and Mythology. Once you do this first before reading it, you'll truly get to enjoy it.
I thought it was an okay book. For a small one, it took me a while. I have read Pippa DaCosta's works and for a moment I was under the impression I missed previous books. My only disappointment was writer didn't provide the reader background information on the Gods. It was hard for me in the beginning, as it left me questioning many times "why". Hence why a short story took me a while to get into. I had to do research. Good thing for Pinterest app and Egyptian Gods family tree and info!!
I am unsure about my rating; as I still have some unanswered questions about main character. Maybe I am being harsh. Overall I did get to enjoy it (after research... and narration) and do want to read what happens next.
I purchased the audible book when I saw it was narrator Paul Woodson. Da man is in no doubt a superb narrator!! I have a list of books narrated by him I am yet to own! Great voice actor! It made the story much more exciting, and go through emotions.
Audible made it much more enjoyable!

I no sooner got really into the story when it ended. RATS!! And more rats!!!
Don't get me wrong this is a good story but it's not a great story. Maybe it's a first book in the series and it's just going to take off but after reading the great reviews I had high hopes and ended up feeling rather underwhelmed. Ace just irritated me. He was never a hero nor an anti-hero, he never overcame this 'blackness' he apparently contained and saw the light, did his good deed etc. In fact his blackness never seemed all that dark. I never got the feeling he was capable of dark deeds and all in all he was just kind of meh. I am very glad I didn't use my credits for this and got it at a good price otherwise I think I would be feeling a bit cheated. I think this is the kind of book you read if you are awaiting a release and are finished with all your other books. I probably will read the next installment just not yet. Of note the writing style is very good without any grammatical errors, spelling mistakes or plot mistakes. I just think that the author could have developed her characters better. I never cheered anyone on nor did I wish anyone a slow painful death lol. This confirms that I never became emotionally invested in any characters.
