I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
When sneaking out and drinking finally gets Julie into trouble, she's forced to join her Archaeologist parents on their trip to Giza. What she thought would be boring months away from her friends and school turns interesting when she meets Flynn, the only boy her age at the dig site. At first she doesn't give him a second thought until he begins to speak, who would reject a semi attractive guy with a sexy British accent? That is, until she meets the tall, dark, and handsome young benefactor that hired her parents, Omar, their attraction to each other is instant. Things begin to get interesting as Julie is torn between the two boys. But her happiness is short lived when they find a dead jackal far from civilization and in their pyramid. Now the locals working on the site fear being cursed, which everyone else brushes off as silly superstition. That very night a body is found completely drained of blood. Is this the curse that has befallen them?
I love books that take you back in time. This book certainly does that and more. I am instantly taken back to ancient Exgypt as it toggles between the past and current day while they uncover the truth about Dejedfre. I loved Julie's strength and courage throughout the story; personally I'd have had a meltdown. This novel had nonstop action and a mystery that keeps you guessing. Once again Laura DeLuca has created a very imaginative and creative paranormal romance.
