Ragman by J.G. Faherty
Picture this, Egypt 1888, a group of 11 British soldiers stumble upon a tomb guarded by a priest, they rob the tomb but not before murdering the priest, and before he dies curses the group. An act which will have grave consequences in the future.
The dead priest is resurrected to avenge his death, and what follows is a fun-filled/action/humour/horror journey with body parts left right and centre!!. I really enjoyed it, I don't think I've ever read a story about a dead ancient priest/revenge-looking mummy at least I don't remember.
The author did his homework, research-wise, at least on what my understanding of Egypt is. The narration was spot-on and I felt the author had fun writing it—also very colourful characters.
If you are into a killer mummy, action-filled adventure then you can't go wrong with this one.
My thanks to @RandomThingsTours and @JGFaherty for a chance to review it and for a spot on tour.
