SIROCCO, Storm over Land and Sea: by Inge H. Borg #Review

SiroccoEgyptologist, Naunet, and scientist Jonathan, and Bill get sent overseas to Cairo to remove black pitch from ancient gold tablets so they can translate them. While there Egypt gets thrown into upheaval over the presidential elections.

Dr. El-Masri, the Pharaoh and Egyptian antiquities director that asked them to come to Cairo has his own political problems to deal with and is soon whisking them away to Luxor, a high security site, to continue their work. The problem is that they have lost all internet connection and have no phone service to get in touch with their boss back in the states. They are out of the loop on what exactly is going on in Egypt, feel like they are being used, and wonder if they will be able to get back to the states safely.

When Edward, antique’s dealer, enters the picture Jonathan’s gut tells him the man is no good, but Naunet is enthralled with this guy and he cant convince her otherwise. He also cant hop onto the internet to get more information, proof, that Edward is not what he says he is.

Meanwhile Naunet has been invited on a short vacation with Edward. Happily she says yes, and from the moment she’s alone with Edward and his companion Karakurt, who she had no idea was joining them, she regrets leaving the Luxor behind.

This is a fast pace book, well written, well researched, and has enough going on to keep you on the edge of your seat. I like the fact that things continue to go wrong for the bad guys in this story.

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures. Visit Lynn at: Website: Twitter: @lynnthompson8 Facebook: Goodreads:
