THE ROSETTA KEY is the second book featuring adventurer, Ethan Gage. I haven't read the first book in the series (NAPOLEON'S PYRAMIDS) yet but it's on my "to read" list. I'm working my way through the series backwards because I started with THE DAKOTA CIPHER, third book in the series, and liked it so much, I grabbed THE ROSETTA KEY the next time I got to a bookstore.

1799. Napoleon Bonaparte's army intends to conquer Israel. Ethan Gage is in the Holy Land searching for an Egyptian scroll that has special powers. At all costs, he must keep the scroll and its magical powers from falling into Napoleon's possession. Failing that, he must recover it before Napoleon can unlock its secrets.

Good story. Interesting characters. Who knew historical fiction could be so much fun to read?! Dietrich has a knack for storytelling that will endear him to readers and leave them wanting more Ethan Gage adventures for a long time to come.

Other titles in the series are NAPOLEON'S PYRAMIDS and THE DAKOTA CIPHER.
