Will the pursuit of justice cost them everything?
Around the time most girls wanted to become fashion designers I wanted to be an archaeologist. And that's what really attracted me to The Tempering Agent, the heroine is an archaeologist in Egypt. Talk about some amazing history and a totally exotic location! Toss in plenty of suspense and romance and you get a book that I wanted to read.
I did notice several references to what assume must be another book. I do think this book can be read standalone, but, if the opportunity presents itself I would like to read the other one as well.
As a rockhound myself, I think my absolute favorite part of The Tempering Agent is how, author Victoria Pitts Caine chose to head each chapter with some great tidbits of information on gemstones and metals, all related to one key artifact in the story.
Victoria Pitts Caine delivers a simple, easy to read, story packed with danger, intrigue, romance, and betrayal. It's also the story of a girl trying to find her way through grief and back into a life of faith and love.
I enjoyed my little jaunt into Egypt and the thrilling world of archaeology and antiquities...
