"When they broke into the inner chamber of the tomb, the first thing they saw was a throne of yellowed ivory poised on lion's legs and claws of gold. On it sat a figure, a figure of some queen of ancient Egypt, her youth and breath-taking beauty preserved for centuries in the sealed silence of the vault. Suddenly a thin shaft of sunlight trickled in through the blackness and the beautiful image vanished, disintegrated before their eyes into a small pile of dust. The miraculously preserved body was gone, but in the incredible, turbulent weeks that followed Miles Seton could never lose the memory of that marble-white face, the deep repose of the features and the faint, faint smile which touched the mouth - . Shifting from the musty, century-laden atmosphere of an Egyptian tomb to the garish, colorful atmos-phere of modern India this fascinating novel tells the strange story of a love that defied time and space itself, the story of a queen of prehistoric Egypt brought to life in the twentieth century. (The author) has a deep understanding of oriental mysticism and this engrossing story provides a vivid picture of Indian philosophy and thought with all its mystic beauty and curious logic. (This) is indeed a skillful, exciting blending of the spiritual and the material."
