This novel is set at the time of Napoleon’s exile on the island of Elba. The absent emperor is in the back of every characters’ mind as they struggle for power. The main character Hattie, named after the Egyptian goddess Hathor, is the daughter of two politically-minded Egyptologists who have vanished while excavating a tomb in the Valley of the Kings. This novel has a convoluted plot with far too many characters to keep track of, and even at the end it isn’t entirely clear where each character’s allegiances lie. There is a lot of action and intrigue in this novel as Hattie tries to find out what happened to her parents and finds out more than she intended to about her own past.
