My Review
The Quest of the Empty Tomb by Elyse Salpeter 

Everyone wants something from Kelsey, except she doesn’t even know who or why. When an arrogant young man enters her world with a cryptic cry for help in a message from his father, Kelsey is off on another quest that involves her past, her parents and secrets long kept. What will she find in Egypt? Promises have been made, but is it up to Kelsey to keep them? Egyptian gods and goddesses have made bargains and payment is due, payments that could end Kelsey’s very existence. Will this mystery bring Kelsey and Desmond out of the struggles their relationship has been having? Those alarming nightmares have returned, along with that feeling of being sick, but why does the sickness come and go? Who or what is triggering them?

Desmond has become obsessed with painting his visions of Xanadu, Ari has become even more secretive, enter Jay, a man jealous of the weight his father places in the task he has given Kelsey. Is there a reason for his father’s calculated distance that never occurred to Jay? What is the relationship between Kelsey’s past and this mysterious man? A goddess waits for Kelsey, but why? Familiar with travel to other realms, Kelsey may be surprised to discover who her true allies are and who her misguided enemies are.

Travel through Egyptian tombs, feel the heat rise within and witness the empty tomb, as Elyse Salpeter weaves a spell of intrigue, mythology and suspense into one tapestry of great reading in this installment of her Kelsey Porter series, The Quest of the Empty Tomb. Ms. Salpeter shares her mystery one crumb at a time throughout, keeping her readers riveted to each page, looking for clues to the final outcome. As it looms ahead, you finally realize that nothing could have prepared you for the ending of this amazing journey. But is it the end?

Mystery, mayhem, global travel, realm travel, dream travel, pack a bag, leave a note to stop the paper, we are off to Egypt!
