Stumbling in the dark of an unfinished tomb beneath the sands of Saqqara, American tourist Tim Hope unknowingly passes through a time portal that leads to ancient Egypt: a time before the Sphinx, before the great pyramids of Giza, and long before the loss of his beloved Addy.
When he discovers that two other Americans preceded him through the time portal, Tim immerses himself in the ancient world to search for them. As he becomes more comfortable with the simpler, more immediate land, he finds himself irresistibly attracted to the delicate Meryt, a wbt-priestess for the god Re.
Learning that a seven-year famine has led to a plot to overthrow King Djoser, Tim discovers that his fate, the lives of the two Americans and the future of Egypt rest in the hands of the legendary Imhotep, master architect of the Step Pyramid, renowned physician and intimate adviser to King Djoser.

One of the best of the year!
Didn't read print version, so no opinion.
Totally original concept from start to finish. Outstanding in every regard, with the caveat that it is long for this type of novel, and it does get abit involved with many characters and agendas, so attention must be paid.
The American couple were impressive.
I was provided this audiobook by Audioblast in exchange for a fair and unbiased review. Good timing, as once again I had it in my queue for regular downloading. ( Do you think there is some collusion there ? Mmmm? )
All that said, this is truly an epic audio performance. The setting is exotic, the characters rich and realistic, the research clearly in depth, and the overall feel wonderfully fufilling.
It does get bogged down abit at time, and could do with some editing , but on balance this is one of my favourites of the year, and is well worth the credit and the time for anyone.
There is no "x" in "escape"
