The Forgotten Pharaoh by Laura DeLuca - Review

TheForgottenPharoahBookBlastPharaohCoverJulie 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.

My Thoughts: The Forgotten Pharaoh was a book full of surprising twists and turns that reminded me of an Indiana Jones like adventure. There was so much mystery as the story jumps from Djedefre's past and Julie's present. I loved the shifts and how it all fit together like the perfect puzzle by the end.
The characters, both present and past, are interesting and in depth. Julie has bratty moments, but they fit her perfectly and she definitely grows as a person in the book. Both the guys in her life are amazing and at times unexpected characters. I loved each shocking revelation that they discovered through the book.
The Forgotten Pharaoh is an amazing book. Once I started reading I was sucked into the mystery. I loved all the Egyptian history and architecture throughout the story. If you are a lover of adventure, mystery, or history, I'd suggest this book. It will keep you on the edge of your seat as they struggle to solve a mystery that could change everything.
