From Publishers Weekly:

One second, savvy 26-year-old English-American time-traveler Chloe Kingsley is in 1996, the next she finds herself being pulled up from the sea in ancient Israel. In this colorful, well-researched third installment in Chloe's time-traveling adventures (Reflections in the Nile, Shadows on the Aegean), she is transported into biblical times at the beginning of King David's reign. In neighboring Egypt, internecine conflicts surround the Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten. The book starts off slowly, as Frank recapitulates the previous stories and explains how Chloe, a contemporary artist and one-time U.S. Air Force pilot, and Cheftu, her husband, a 19th-century French doctor whom she met on a previous time travel trip, have become separated. Added to this already convoluted setup is the character of RaEm, a dangerous ancient Egyptian woman who has been inhabiting Chloe's body in the 20th century and who is now stuck with Cheftu in the same time period as Chloe, on a deserted island somewhere near Egypt. The tale picks up steam once the author is fully embarked on her quest to fill some crucial gaps in ancient history via an intriguing plot in which people with modern knowledge interact with important historical figures. Chloe assists David's people in the invasion of the city that becomes Jerusalem, and designs the symbolic star of David; Cheftu becomes scribe to King David and a writer of the Old Testament; and RaEm connives to become Pharaoh's co-regent and attempts to use 20th-century scholarship to make a frightening change in the course of history. The juxtaposition of modern-day observations and expressions and archaic situations ("there was no direct translation for my words: Duh!") gives a good shot of humor to the clever, suspenseful narrative.

From Booklist:

In a delightful twist on biblical history, Chloe Kingsley, a 1990s Texan, is wrested from the arms of her husband in ancient Egypt and thrust through time to emerge in the sea. Not since Jean Auel's Ayla has there been a heroine as resourceful as Chloe. She survives a deadly ritual as a mermaid goddess, saves a few of the Pelesti (Philistines) from total annihilation, becomes a slave, and provides the means for David and his tribesmen to take Jerusalem, thus winning her freedom. Meanwhile, her beloved husband, Cheftu, formerly a physician, shows up and becomes David's scribe. Then RaEm, Chloe's nemesis and a time traveler with a yen to be pharaoh, emerges to manipulate and murder her way onto the throne as coregent before traveling to Jerusalem in an attempt to steal the treasure of the Chosen Ones. Fast-paced and wildly entertaining, this third book in the series stands alone but makes the reader want to hunt down Reflections in the Nile (1997) and Shadows on the Aegean (1998).
