Two women stand looking at a newly finished burial palace. One of the women is Cleopatra VII. It is to be her tomb for when she needs it many years in the future.
It won’t be all that long.
The woman next to her is her good friend Tomyris of Massagetae. She helped design the burial palace. Together they created a tomb of magnificence, simplicity and…mystery. There is more here than meets the eye.
Three days after the death of her lover Marcus Antonius, Cleopatra is cruelly murdered by a trusted servant. With great ceremony they are laid to rest. They are never to be disturbed in their slumber until the burial palace itself crumbles to the dust from whence it came.
Fernando de Bolivar, as arrogant as he is wealthy, is an archeologist and explorer with a nose for new discoveries of ancient sites. His record of successes is long. There is one place though that has continually eluded him. Cleopatra’s tomb. His lifelong vow is to find it and take what he can. In other words, steal as much as he can get away with.
Standing in his way is beautiful Dr. Tomyris Currington who has vowed to protect the secret of the tomb for as long as she can. Will she fail in all of her attempts to dissuade Fernando de Bolivar from continuing his search?
Will she fall for his charms? His money? Or will he, and she, encounter something else entirely?
Continuing one of the most unusual series of books I've had the honor of working on, book three in the Scepter of the Nile
series has a face. Introducing ... The Tomb
, by Ross Homer
I say it's unusual because the central character's life spans a longer-than-ordinary timeline. This means the primary cover art and look for the MC can, and does, vary a good deal from one book to the next.
In book one, Scepter of the Nile
, the setting and era was Ancient Egypt. In book two, The Ankh
, the scene was present-day. And for book three, The Tomb
, we return to Ancient Egypt, with a memory that takes place before the first book's scene. Ross knows how to keep things interesting, huh?
Of course, for any familiar with this series, it's easy to see a reoccurring theme ... the MC likes translucent clothing, lol. Or shall I blame Ross for that? ;P
Be sure to check out the entire series and catch-up with Ross Homer online:
Onto wrapping up the next book
Until next time ...
