The Spitting Cobra: Egyptian Chronicles book 1 Synopsis

The Spitting Cobra is the first in a new series of four books set in Ancient Egypt. The Horned Viper, the second Egyptian Chronicle, will be published in October 2009 and two further instalments will be released in 2010. Each book is a fantastically atmospheric evocation of Egyptian life encased in an exciting adventure story.

The boy and girl characters, Hopi and Isis, feature in each book and readers will be intrigued to follow their struggles for existence and adventure in Egypt circa 1150 BC. Set in the legendary Valley of the Kings, The Spitting Cobra opens the series with a gripping adventure of royal proportions, as Isis and Hopi try to solve the mystery of who is stealing sacred treasures from the heavily guarded Pharaoh's tombs.
