HEIR OF RA -- BOOK ONE, BLOOD OF RA
HEIR OF RA is an action-packed
adventure starring a fifteen-year-old girl, Alyssa, who accompanies her father
on an archeological dig. When her father becomes ill by a mysterious disease
related to opening a tomb (think curse of King Tut combined with Covid-19), she
races to save him—and possibly all of humanity. If this premise sounds simple,
it’s because you haven’t read HEIR OF RA.
Maciek Sasinowski takes readers on an
intrigue-filled journey across Egypt, Peru, England and the US.At first, I thought the author went off on
tangents, but they all come together. The
story moves rapidly so readers should pay attention to chapter headings to get
their bearing. The author’s apparent understanding of technology, biology, history, and mythology comes through in this fascinating story.
Sasinowski's vivid writing paints word pictures the reader can “see” as he or she
reads. The characters are appealing and three-dimensional. I appreciated that his writing includes humor to lighten the action.
heroine, Alyssa, is based on the author’s daughter. If the real Alyssa is anything like her namesake, she must be both a challenge and a pleasure to keep up with and parent! In HEIR OF RA she doesn’t
know who to trust as she fulfills her quest to save her father. I can see this story as the first of a popular
series and even made into a movie.
you enjoy YA, you will enjoy this story. Books two and three are sure to provide more reading enjoyment.

He’s kind of smart, I suppose (he has a physics

understands, like in Klingon or, better yet, in Wookie. Guurrghghgh!
