Praise for the Ramose series
“Exciting, informative and, more importantly, vividly entertaining reading … Carole Wilkinson exploits her obviously sound grasp of the labyrinthine nature of ancient Egyptian politics to credibly conjure up unexpected plot twists and turns in these swiftly paced adventures. The author’s writing is tight, well-structured and deftly plotted.” Magpies magazine
“A fascinating, brooding, deliciously chilling setting for a most innovative, refreshingly original novel, which tingles with spookiness and the ever-present whiff of death.” Sunday Tasmanian
“Through the eyes of the central character, we get a thoroughly authentic feeling about what life was like for folk in those far-gone days. Author Carole Wilkinson, who writes these exciting stories with a verve and a keen eye for authenticity, has based her fictional leading character, Ramose, on a real person.” The Literature Base
