The jury’s out on this one, for me. Is it time-travel? Is it historical fiction? Ultimately, I’m not sure it really matters because this one’s a heck of a lot of fun.

When Tim Hope passes through a portal to ancient Egypt he becomes Imhotep. It’s a rollicking tale of death, treachery, and magic all set in the time of the pharaohs. Dubs managed to drag me into this world and keep me enthralled as the American tourist struggles with the difficulties of becoming somebody he only knows through legend – but whose life he finds himself living. Kinda made me wish I had paid attention in history class a bit more. The people feel real. The places are – probably – real. The story is absolutely real.

But don’t take my word for it. Why not grab a sample and head down into the pyramid yourself?

One thought on “Imhotep”

  1. I went through the same discussion with myself about genre then said “what the hay ” and ended up reading straight through the whole series! If you are fascinated by ancient Egypt as I Am this is one fun read. And, wonder of wonder, no King Tut!
