PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: "A strong conclusion sets this light fantasy a notch above its peers."

While vacationing in Egypt. . .

Jeannette Walker, a cynical scientist jaded by swarms of tour groups and knick-knack shacks, is lured by a teenage tour guide to visit a newly discovered tomb. No other tourists there! Inside the chamber, she tumbles down a shaft and 3000 years back in time.

Now, in a world where deities walk the streets and prophecy heats up the air, Jeannette is desperate for normal and the simple pleasures of sanitation and refrigeration. However, a slave master hawking a cat-headed girl derails her homebound mission, and Jeannette--penniless in this ancient world--steals the girl, bringing down the tireless fury of the slaver.

Saddled with a newly awakened mummy and the cat-headed girl, Jeannette contrives a plan to free them from the slaver's ire, but will she have to dive into the belly of the beast to succeed?

Review:

A great sense of character evolutiondrives the plot, as Jeanette learns that her safe, mundane, passivemodern life can't compare to the active role she takes in freeingSanura from slavery, or working to stop tomb robbing.Her friendships form organically,leading to an unlikely but well-handled romantic subplot. Supernaturalelements help develop the world, but don't overpower it. The descriptions feel like what a modern person would notice, rather than generic scene-setting. A strong conclusionsets this light fantasy a notch above its peers. ―Publishers Weekly Three Great Lies felt like a visit to a real place-a real, vibrant culture-with real people that I won't soon forget and will want to revisit again and again. ―Abyss & Apex
The growth and changes of the three central characters are believable and endearing. MacLellan juggles the serious themes of friendship and what gives life meaning with a flip voice and a humorous style.
