review: the Egyptian by Layton Green

"While death and darkness girdle me I grope for immortality." — Lionel Johnson

The Egyptian
after resigning from his job as Diplomatic Security Agent and leaving Zimbabwe, Dominic Grey teams up with Religious Phenomenology Professor Viktor Radek. their new assignment takes them from Manhattan to Bulgaria and to a mysterious desert region of one of the world's great cradles of civilization - Egypt.
meeting Grey and Viktor for the second time was like a reunion with old friends. catching up with their latest exploits and hearing about how things have been since they survived the horrors at the hands of the N’anga was a most welcome diversion for the good part of one weekend afternoon.
Viktor is as enigmatic as ever and more of Grey's past is revealed in bits and pieces. new characters are introduced as well and i wonder if i will get to see more of them in the next book(s).
author Layton Green is in his top form again as he follows up the success of his first Dominic Grey novel The Summoner. he whips up another well written, intelligent and fast-paced story by combining science, technology, myths and archeology and liberally sprinkles it with enough thrills to make you beg for more! 

*The Egyptian is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. for more information about Layton Green and his work, please visit www.laytongreen.com

my personal rating is:
The Egyptian contains material not suitable for younger readers 13 & under.
