Ancient Hearts (Kingdom of Sand and Stars Book 1)


Andelyn (Andie) Godfrey has always known she would follow in her father’s footsteps. Archeology has been her life for as long as she can remember. She plans to finish school, make her relationship with her father’s assistant, Silas, official, and help solve an ancient Egyptian riddle. Her father and Silas leaving for work wasn’t unusual, but this goodbye felt different. When Silas left her a necklace, Andie had no time to question anything before they were gone. Two years after their disappearance, Andie joins the team exploring their last known location. How could she not? Even the Gods had no idea what lay in store for her! Will love be enough to save not only her, but those she thought lost forever?

Taking a time travel romance all the way back to Ancient Egypt gives this book a unique edge that sets it apart from other novels in the genre. Whilst the story starts in the present, it soon takes the reader back to the world of Anubis, Horus, and other Gods that have only lived in the history books. Whilst some of the puzzles unravel with some interesting plot twists, the majority of the questions from the beginning of the book remain unanswered, with the reader needing the next book to find out whether certain villains will be identified and bought to justice. An intriguing series concept that will leave readers questioning what will happen next.
