Inez lives in nineteenth century Buenos Aires, but her heart goes with her parents every year when they spend six months is Egypt on expeditions. When she receives word that both of her parents have perished in a mysterious accident and no bodies have been recovered, she sneaks aboard a ship bound for Cairo to see what she can find out.
I love the blend of romance, history and magic in this novel. Inez enters Cairo at an exciting time of exploration and discovery. She meets fascinating people and hearing about the digs and travel in that part of the world at that time was really interesting. I always love a book that is solidly based in the real world, but lets magic sneak in the cracks. I recommend pre ordering this one, or picking it up when it comes out November 14th!
