Wraiths of Time

May 13, 2016

Author: Andre Norton.

Summary:

When Tally Mitford tries to prevent the theft of a recent museum acquisition, she is dragged into an alternate-universe Egyptian battle. She’ll have to take the place of her now-dead double, accept new memories, and help ‘her people’ in a struggle of politics and strange forces.

My Thoughts:

The idea felt less than creative. An alternate-universe Egyptian culture, where all the pop-culture rumors are true; they’ve got telepathic powers, aliens had a hand in the development, etc. Hand in hand with this, some of the shadier parts are never actually explained, to characters or audience. I was not really engaged.

Content Review:

Sexual content: None.

Language: None.

Violence: A character is forced to move, work, by an invisible compulsion – it flings her against a glass case in trying to break it. Second hand military tallies of dead. A character is drugged unconscious and bound. She’s then imprisoned in a cage. Character is mentally attacked by wraiths, then attacked by a crocodile they roused.
