“How doth the little crocodile / Improve his shining tail, / And pour the waters of the Nile,/ On every golden scale!” - Lewis Carroll
|Priestess of the Nile|
i have always been fascinated by Egypt and its history - fact or fiction. when i read this book, i was once again lured by the mystery of Egypt's pyramids, temples and its pantheon of gods and goddesses.
author Veronica Scott's novella captured a facet of Ancient Egypt and brought it to life through the eyes of Merys and Sobek.
i love the worldbuilding and how the story flowed. Merys reminds me of Cinderella but instead of a prince, she ends up with a god. the twists and turns were interesting especially the conclusion which i liked a lot.
i would have wanted the story to be longer though but as a whole, the novella was packaged just right.
i recommend this book to readers who love ancient history and mythology. those who need to escape and be transported to a different time and place for a little more than an hour will find in this book the perfect excuse to do so.
