I always have a difficult time reviewing short novellas. Because it is hard to say very much without giving everything away. I will do my best.
This is a story set in ancient Egypt. The Pharaoh’s so has died from a curse from Moses and the Hebrews. Now it is up the Pharaoh’s last remaining magician to remove the curse and return life to young Prince. This he was able to do, but at a great cost.
Nothing really stood out to me as being especially good or bad about the story itself. It was a quick straight forward listen with a fairly original story line. Was too short to keep me guessing about anything.
I do think that Brown has opened a can of worms with this story that deserves to be explored more thoroughly. I think there could be a great story in the war on Moses and the Hebrews was expanded. And the aftermath of what happen here to the Egyptian empire.
If you are a fan of TW Brown’s DEAD series. I would bet that you will like this. It oozes with his writing style and even some gore.
I believe that this is author T. W. Brown’s first time narrating an audiobook. While the performance wasn’t bad, it wasn’t superb either. Brown sounded very flat, as in not a whole lot of anything but reading the words of the story. Some listeners have a problem with this, sometime I do as well. Generally narrators will inject emotion by fluctuating their tone, speed, inflection, etc. I did hear a subtle hiss in the background that was more distracting than anything else.
