"THE PRINCESS WHO LOST HER SCROLL OF THE DEAD"...(Kindle)
Nefera wakes up to encounter a shock in her decorated and treasure-laden tomb.
Her royal scribe has cheated her and substituted a blank, rolled up scroll for her valuable Book of the Dead, hoping his crime will never be discovered and that he can sell the real one to someone else. Nefera suddenly realises that she has no magical passport-and-guide to the underworld of scary animals and animal-headed guardians. Hieroglyphs surround her on the tomb’s walls, but her papyrus scroll is totally blank,
as if the text had been written in disappearing ink.
“My scroll is as empty as the desert. Where are my magical Words of Power?”
She quakes. Must she enter the shadowy world of animal-headed monsters and demons, alone, unprotected and guideless, clutching a worthless scroll? How will she ever reach the Egyptian heaven? She prays to the ibis-headed god of writing and spells: “Lord Thoth, send me Words of Power to take me through the underworld.”
It is a risky prayer. Hieroglyphs can come to life in the tomb and become uncontrollable forces....
