The Deathstalker The Egyptian Chronicles book 4 Press Reviews

Praise for 'Orphan of the Sun': 'Well-researched and extremely filmic, you can almost feel the heat and taste the ripe figs
The Bookseller

'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'
School Librarian Praise for the Egyptian Chronicles series:

'As well as an exciting storyline, the books are also historically accurate, allowing children to absorb information while they read'
Junior Education Plus

'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'
