in Press Releases

“THE LOST PHARAOH – Sobek II” is author Allen Pollens’ ninth published book and sixth in the science fiction-fantasy genre.  “Pharaoh” treats the reader to an exciting adventure set in Egypt and traversing the full length of the Nile.

A visit to Philadelphia Art Museum’s Tutankhamen display changes everything for Dr. Alberto Rodriguez.  A professor of archeology at Jess Hawkins University, he is familiar with Howard Carter’s 1922 discovery of Tut’s tomb.  His own participations in excavations in New Mexico and Arizona were worthy endeavors but trivial when measured against Carter’s achievements.  Alberto tells himself that emulating Carter and trying to make an equally significant discovery is foolish.  He stifles the obsession, but it bursts to the surface when Alberto comes upon rumors of another lost Pharaoh in Egypt.  Alberto looks for a way to respond.  Finally, throwing  all caution to the wind, he draws his closest friends into an undisclosed escapade that satisfies his ambition.  There will be hardships and danger, but so what?  When ancient Egypt calls, it is time to act.
