The Lovereading4Kids comment
Fantastically atmospheric of both time and place, because the author has spent much time in Egypt. The stories too, are meticulously researched so you really feel yourself travelling with the characters as they experience all manner of adventures in Egypt circa 1150BC.
In this one, The Deathstalker, Isis and Hopi try to help a Libyan girl who has been taken prisoner. The book includes factual detail and notes about Egyptian lifestyle, the importance of the gods for the Egyptians, the tombs and much else. This is the fourth of four. Click here to see them all.
The Deathstalker The Egyptian Chronicles book 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.
Praise for 'Orphan of the Sun': 'Well-researched and extremely filmic, you can almost feel the heat and taste the ripe figs
'A rich story. The author's love for the place is evident and allows you to imagine events clearly even without any prior knowledge of ancient Egypt. An unusual, well researched book'
'As well as an exciting storyline, the books are also historically accurate, allowing children to absorb information while they read'
'Stories set in ancient Egypt are rare so this is very welcome. Details of life at the time, the food, drink, clothing and customs come alive as part of the story, not indigestible facts'
