The Deathstalker: The Egyptian Chronicles: No. 4 by Gill Harvey
The fourth in a new series of four books: the first and second titles were published in August and October 2009, the third to be published in February 2010. Fantastically atmospheric evocations of Egyptian life are encased in an exciting adventure story. Each story features the boy and girl characters Hopi and Isis, and their struggles for existence and adventure in Egypt circa 1150 BC. In this story, The Deathstalker, Isis and Hopi try to help a Libyan girl who has been taken prisoner. The author has spent much time in Egypt and the stories are meticulously researched. The book includes factual detail and notes about Egyptian lifestyle, the importance of the gods for the Egyptians, the tombs and much else.
