For about 360 pages of this book I kept asking myself why I was sticking with it. I couldn't remember all the various plot twists and characters and magical terms, and I couldn't garner any appreciation for the main characters-I pretty much just wanted them to die so I could finally be done with the entire messiness of it all.
Then I got to the last 20 pages, and I just went "Wow." Everything is just tied together in such a nicely wrapped package I felt like clapping.
While there weren't as many Egyptian gods and famous authors as the description claims nor as many I would've liked, the intrigue and running around in time were pretty fun. Once the bad guys start to go things get better, I promise.
