Review: 

Reading the description, I was definitely expecting an erotically charged book. I was not disappointed on that regards; the book can definitely keep a girl happy for a very long time. But what kept me going for this book would be the dynamic plot of treasure hunting and ancient wonders. Combine those with fast-packed action and what more could I ask for? The characters are intense and compliment well with the plotline. The element of thrill and intrigue definitely uplifts the book from the onslaught of eroticism, though I did feel that towards that end it did feel a bit flat or maybe overtly done just to keep it exciting. The narrative style is smooth and clear, though I did note a few grammatical errors in few place. 

What I didn’t like about the book would be this blatant objectification of sex as the cover image. For a book that has a simple title and a dramatic plotline, a sexified image was not required. 

My opinion: Definitely an interesting read. 

My rating: 3.5 out of 5
