It’s the #RRBC 2018 SPONSORS BLOG HOP – @WendyJayneScott

Welcome to the final stop of the #RRBC 2018 SPONSORS Blog Hop.  

The purpose of this blog hop was to profile some of those awesome members of RRBC who so generously supported our yearly gift basket raffle giveaway in 2018.  Each day of this hop, 5 books were profiled, and today, we’re ending the hop with one special book:

HIEROGLYPH by RWISA Author, Wendy Scott

Hieroglyph by Wendy Scott

There’s that beautiful cover, now here’s the blurb:

“Did Ancient Egyptians visit Australia?”

13-year-old TC has a secret. No one knows she possesses a supernatural power.
Can TC help her Uncle Max, an archaeologist; to unearth enough evidence to prove Ancient Egyptians visited Australia, before he’s discredited in the media by those that want the past to stay buried?

“Some would say that I have a gift, but to me, it’s always been a curse. Before I changed my mind, I tugged off my gloves and whipped my head left and right, checking to see that no one was watching. I sucked in a breath and steadied my nerves then thrust my hands against the stones and touched one of the cartouches. Time and place ripped away.”

An enthralling archaeological mystery, mixing the supernatural with humor and suspense.

The first of TC’s adventures – an archaeological mystery for junior readers and above.

In December of 2015, this book earned a 5-star review from me:

I don’t know if you all have heard me say this before (more like, whine about it), but I am a person who definitely judges an actual book by its cover.  Suffice that to say, not only was I not impressed by the cover of this book, but the title was a total turn-off to me, as well.  Not because it wasn’t a great title, and not because it was a bad cover, they were both just not my cup of “obvious” tea.  But, you came here for a review, didn’t you?

I thought Wendy Scott was an amateur writer.  Little did I know, that once between the covers of this book, I would be taken on an excitingly wonderful journey (and I don’t mean the one TC took us on).  The journey?  The book itself.  Great story-line.  Characters so real they felt like family, and the research that must have gone into making this book all come together so well was nothing short of amazing!  An amateur, she is not. I know a bit more about Egyptian history now, more than I’ve ever known my entire life!  (Thanks for all the education, Wendy!)

I’m not one to give a full rundown of what a book is about in my reviews.  That’s what Amazon is for.  But, just for the sake of the holiday season, this is a story of TC, an amazing young girl with supernatural powers, which no one knows she possesses.  There!  I shared with you what the story is about.  But, what I haven’t shared yet, is that Wendy Scott wrote a book so good, that not only teens will enjoy it because of the adventure aspect, but avid readers of all ages will, too.  Not only that… I am so impressed with the writing and her ingenious character-development, that I am giving this book 5 stars and hoping that everyone will take the time to read it.  This was truly a clean read and it flowed seamlessly, like a constantly moving river.  It was typo and error-free for the most part, so I must thank the author for taking the time to make the read more enjoyable for me, by ensuring that it was properly edited before I was introduced to it.  What I did find that detracted from the read a little, were the animations.  I don’t think they’re at all necessary, and maybe a bit distracting, especially when you happen upon a more serious side of the story, only to look up and be made to feel as if it’s all a cartoon.  In summation, HIEROGLYPH is a coming-of-age tale with a twist, and one that will leave you feeling good after the read is all over!  By the way, I am now in love with this cover! {This book would make a great gift for those teenagers in your life.}
