Product Description

Product Description

"Imhotep" is the first book in a four-novel series about the ancient Egyptian architect.
Stumbling in the dark of an unfinished tomb beneath the sands of Saqqara, American tourist Tim Hope unknowingly passes through a time portal that leads to ancient Egypt — a time before the Sphinx, before the great pyramids of Giza, and long before the loss of his beloved Addy.
When he discovers that two other Americans preceded him through the time portal, Tim immerses himself in the ancient world to search for them. As he becomes more comfortable with the simpler, more immediate land, he finds himself irresistibly attracted to the delicate Meryt, a wbt-priestess for the god Re.
Learning that a seven-year famine has led to a plot to overthrow King Djoser, Tim discovers that his fate, the lives of the two Americans and the future of Egypt rest in the hands of the legendary Imhotep, master architect of the Step Pyramid, renowned physician and intimate adviser to King Djoser.
Downloaded by more than 100,000 readers, “Imhotep" is the first book in an acclaimed four-book series about the ancient Egyptian architect Imhotep. The second book in the series is "The Buried Pyramid." The third book is "The Forest of Myrrh." The fourth book is "The Field of Reeds."

I loved this book. My major at university was the Ancient Middle East so the plot of this book caught my attention. Dubs really knows his Egyptology...names of characters, gods and general vocabulary are accurate and as well his knowledge of the history of the Land of Khem is excellent.
Aside from this the story was pretty gripping and I found myself returning to my reader more often and for longer periods than most stories. The main characters are well developed, buy as well many of the minor players come to life under the authors pen. This is an exciting and gripping story. The only weakness came at the very end, but then I wouldn't have been able to suggest anything better. Buy this one, you will enjoy it!!

I enjoy historical fiction but don't usually care for wild-eyed science fiction so I was to sure about this book. However, I recently read The Idols by Curran and enjoyed the time travel aspect so I thought I'd give this first in the Jerry Dubs series. I wasn't disappointed. The plot, scene, and characters were well developed and interesting. The writing was quite descriptive, possibly so much so that it bogged the story down, but did paint a vivid picture. Overall, I can recommend this book.

I have never, ever used the word magical in a book review before, but to me that is exactly what this book has been. I've always enjoyed books about ancient Egypt, but this one weaves stories within stories in an extremely gifted context, and you find so much of it believable that you have to remind yourself periodically that it is fictional. Being x-ray enabled eased the identities of a large cast and added to the book. The book being so well done that even the shifting of time from the present to the past flowed smoothly enough it seemed natural. What a gifted writer. I'm on to next in the series.
Just thought I'd put a comment in here for any reader interested in this book. I've finished all 4 books in the series now and each and every one of them is absolutely superlative! I just cannot speak highly enough about the author's ability to weave an enthralling story, keep the writing style consistent, and the players completely believable throughout. Hope you get hooked like I did. Kudos to Jerry Dubs.

When I began reading this book, I had no idea who rich it would be in its descriptions of life in ancient Egypt. I found myself transported there on fleeting wings. It was refreshing to read a book with a different take on the life of Imhotep from that which I had read and seen in the movies. Well done!

Excellent, fast paced nail biter. Would make good movie. In league with DaVinci Code. Part of a series but a complete story on its own. Highly recommended, well written enjoyable read.

What a wonderful time travel book. The book was well researched and the plot developed nicely. I can't way more without spoiling it for other readers but I highly recommend it.
