Set against the rich tapestry of ancient Egypt, Luxor: Book of Past Lives is the story of Nebamun and Iramen, two brothers who are embalmers in Egypt during the era of the boy king, Tutankhamun. It is their duty to prepare the many bodies of the dead who land on their embalming table for a journey into the afterlife. Paralleling this ancient tale is the story of two different brothers, Abdul and Karim, who make their living by robbing the ancient tombs of Egypt in the late 1800's, when the theft and sale of artifacts was at its peak. Woven throughout the novel are the mysterious intersections of the brothers' lives, though separated by thousands of years. Luxor: Book of Past Lives is a masterful blend of fiction and historical detail, each chapter offering a window into the past, with details gleaned from countless historical accounts. It is a riveting tale of violence and greed, riches and poverty, and good and evil in the time of the pharaohs and beyond.

From the Author:

I love Egypt, archaeology, and history. Ancient cultures fascinate me, so it was only natural for me to write about them. When I wrote Luxor: Book of Past Lives, I wanted to bring characters out who are often forgotten by history, in this case, tomb-robbers and embalmers. My goal was to not just describe their daily lives, but to show that these long-dead people had a personality just like we do. Since I have a degree in archaeology, I also strove for attention to detail and accuracy using many ancient and historical accounts and knowledge I acquired on my trip to Egypt. I hope you enjoy Luxor: Book of Past Lives.

About the Author:

Julie Bettendorf is a world traveler, with a background in history and a degree in archaeology. It is her dream to make history come alive for the reader - not just the history of the famous, but the history of the forgotten as well. When she is not traveling, she lives in Portland, Oregon.
