The Forgotten Pharaoh by Laura DeLuca Review with Giveaway ~Kami


The Forgotten Pharaoh


Title: The Forgotten Pharaoh
Author: Laura DeLuca
Genre: YA Paranormal Thriller
Hosted by:
Lady Amber's Tours

This book is full of detail and ancient Egyptian history but honestly I was a little bit bored in the beginning. It did get better. The writing is good. The pacing was slow for the first five chapters. I didn't really find Julie to be a character that I bonded with quickly or cared too much about. The mystery around the pyramid was interesting. A pharaoh was wrongfully accused of murdering his brother and he is cursed because of it. I like vampire stories so I was intriguid by that plot twist. 3.5 stars


Julie Gerber isn't thrilled to be pulled out of school her senior year to follow her parents halfway around the world to unearth a lost pyramid. However, when the cute British guy and the mysterious financier of their project both fight for her attention, things start to get interesting.

The pharaoh known as Djedefre was cursed for the murder of his eldest brother. The work of the archaeologists brings new secrets to light, ones that prove the fallen god-king wasn't the villain history had painted him to be. Can they prove his innocence?

As the team digs deeper into the mystery, members of the party vanish or end up dead. Someone is determined to keep the truth hidden at all costs, even 4,500 years later.
