Reviews

Taking a break from her well-received Firekeeper series (Through Wolf's Eyes, etc.), Lindskold delivers an exotic historical fantasy that takes the reader from Victorian England to Egypt. Sir Neville Hawthorne, a self-made millionaire and wounded war hero, is a man so mesmerized by his desire to retrace the path to a mythical Egyptian archeological treasure that he willfully neglects to use common sense and heed warnings of imminent peril. Sir Neville is hunting the burial chamber of Pharaoh Neferankhotep, who's rumored to be Moses the Lawgiver. His niece Jenny Benet, recently orphaned and come to live with him in England, is spunky and rather too American for her upper-crust English uncle's sensibilities, but she manages to persuade Sir Neville to take her into the desert along with the other members of his team. Lindskold does a fine job of describing the English lifestyle of the day and ancient Egyptian rituals. While the first third of the book tends to bog down in exposition about hieroglyphs (not hieroglyphics, please), by the middle the action has shifted to high gear and the supernatural spookiness carries the story to a satisfying conclusion. Agent, Kay McCauley at Pimlico/Auros. (June 3) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

After joining her Uncle Neville, a renowned archaeologist, in England, newly orphaned Jenny Benet begs to accompany him on his upcoming trip to Egypt. He is in search of a little-known tomb of the Pharaoh Neferankhotep-also known as Moses the Lawgiver. Lindskold (Through Wolf's Eyes; The Dragon of Despair) turns to the 19th century fascination with Egypt and archaeology for her latest fantasy, which mixes pulp adventure with legend for a tale of mysticism and derring-do that should appeal to both adult and YA fantasy fans.

"Lindskold delivers an exotic historical fantasy that takes the reader from Victorian England to Egypt... the supernatural spookiness carries the story to a satisfying conclusion."
--"Publishers Weekly" on "The Buried Pyramid"

"The setting is impeccable, as are the characters' manners, with rich details that bring the era vividly to life. Jenny is a charming heroine, at once practical and daring, and the secondary characters comprise a worthy cast of intellectuals and eccentrics, both English and Egyptian.... A definite keeper, and a story to be savored."
--"Romantic Times" on "The Buried Pyramid" (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick)

"Some incredible fantastic encounters, marvels, even a bit of time travel.... it's spectacular."
--"Locus" on "The Buried Pyramid"

"This would make a fine movie.... "The Buried Pyramid" offers hot, dusty entertainment for a dreary afternoon."
--"Detroit News and Free Press"

"Her characters live--they're real, but they are different. And the world they live in lingers in the mind; heroic, squalid, exotic, everyday. I was convinced that it went on by itself when I turned the last page. Bravo!"
--S. M. Stirling on "Through Wolf's Eyes"

"I adore Jane Lindskold's writing. Her novels are a rarity for me--fat, engrossing novels that still don't seem long enough."
--Charles de Lint
