"This is a bold, new Egyptian novel, the first new novel in over 5 years, from the bestselling author of The Lords of Two Lands trilogy. When Huy is sent away from his family's farm to a prestigious school for a chance at a better life as a scribe, he is befriended by the family of the local governor. But soon after, an unexpected attack shockingly takes Huy's life. After five days in a crypt being prepared for his own burial, Huy miraculously revives. His return makes him a pariah, and he finds himself haunted by visions of the deaths of those around him."--Publisher.

This makes ancient times interesting. I liked how they told about the different classes of people and how they were treated. Also that if you were educated you definitely had a better life. This young man was very lucky that he had a rich uncle who provided for his education. The young boy was already a very smart on his own so he excelled in many things that made him stand out above the others. However that came to his own detriment. I could hardly put the book down. If you like Egyptian times you'll like this.
