Spitting Cobra The Egyptian Chronicles

Written by Gill Harvey

Part of the Egypt Adventures Series

Spitting Cobra The Egyptian Chronicles 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.

Spitting Cobra The Egyptian Chronicles Press Reviews

Praise for Orphan of the Sun: 'Well-researched and extremely filmic, you can almost feel the heat and taste the ripe figs' 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 'Orphan of the Sun is a great resource to use for the Egyptians, and has an accompanying website bursting with information' Junior Education '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' Books for Keeps
