Sam Steele's Adventures - The Treasure of Karnak has gotten more than the usual amount of publicity. The latest is a nice review in the glossy British magazine Ancient Egypt. It just appeared in their August/September 2010 issue.
It's a very good review and I will quote the last few paragraphs:
"Written for teenage boys, it is perhaps surprisingly violent for its time, and its historical accuracy is of some dubious quality; but having said that, it is no worse than many novels set in Egypt written in the last one hundred years, when authors should have known better.
"The Treasure of Karnak is a great historical thriller, designed to quicken the pulse of any red-blooded young male (and possibly even older ones too!)." The full review can be read on-line at the Ancient Egypt website.
If you've never read one of Baum's Sam Steele books - why not give this one a try?
