I read and reviewed the first book in this series, Finding Sheba, and loved it. These books are stand-alones with some of the same characters appearing, mainly Omar Zagouri. Omar is an undercover agent who breaks all the rules, could best be described as a loose cannon with a funny sense of humor, but always gets the job done. In Lost King, he’s tangled up with the theft of ancient artifacts believed to have been written by the Pharaoh she-king, Queen Hatshepsut.
This book was excellent, especially because its underpinnings are based on the real history of Hatshepsut. Heather shines in writing historical fiction. She has a gift of bringing these ancient characters to life in a way that makes you look at history in a whole new and fascinating light.
I loved the character of Thutmose II and the romance between him and Hatshepsut. Hers was a flawed character, and very well-written.
The modern day part of this story was fast-paced, full of action, and surprises. Heather has written another winner that you won’t want to miss.
