About Book

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Sixteen-year-old Rosanna arrives at the Cairo airport in eager anticipation of the Egyptian expedition she has won through an essay contest. However, she soon learns that the original guide, Professor Edison, has been replaced by Finbar O'Neill. "Rosanna eyed him up and down with more than a flicker of interest." So begins this novel with all the trappings of a romantic thriller: exotic location, past lives coinciding with the present, sacrificial rituals, and lovers reuniting after a 1000-year separation. Rosanna discovers (with the help of an evil hypnotist) that in a previous life she was a pharaoh's daughter. At that time, she had refused to marry her father and bear his child to keep the bloodline pure, and now, the pharaoh's descendants have come up with a sinister plot to impregnate her in order to fulfill her ancient destiny. Despite this book's promising premise, the story line meanders in the beginning and takes a while to congeal. Also, action sequences are somewhat bland and anticlimactic, which is problematic in such a plot-driven novel.-Laura Glaser, Euless Junior High School, TX
