Peek Inside Jane Unwrapped

Mummification was not the kind of experiment teen scientist Jane thought she’d be conducting. Now’s she’s trapped in the Egyptian underworld. Worse, the snarky (but outrageously handsome) god Anubis has sworn to devour her soul unless she can go back in time and steal the heart of King Tutankhamen. Stalked by Anubis (who can’t seem to decide whether to kiss her or kill her) Jane must either steal Tut’s heart, or find a way to save them both...even if it means disobeying all the gods of Egypt.

Some tombs should never be opened…

Mummification was not the kind of experiment teen scientist Jane thought she’d be conducting-especially not when she winds up trapped in the Egyptian underworld. If that’s not bad enough, the snarky (but outrageously handsome) god Anubis has sworn to devour her soul. Her only ticket out of the underworld? Go back in time and steal the heart of King Tutankhamen.

Time to test that hypothesis.

Between posing as a priestess, trying to murder the intriguing young pharaoh, and being stalked by Anubis-who can’t seem to decide if he’s going to kiss her or kill her-Jane has to make a choice: do the logical thing and steal Tut’s heart, or find a way to save them both…even if it means rebelling against all the gods of Egypt.


"Fact: Jane Unwrapped brings an exciting new voice and adventure to the realm of YA lit. Hypothesis: Jane's story will enter the hearts of many. Experiment: GO AND READ IT FOR PETE'S SAKE! Conclusion: 5/5 stars." --Maggie, Goodreads

"This book is filled with amazing details on Ancient Egypt in general and on its religious system in particular. Featuring some of the most popular pharaohs and ancients gods, the novel's a winner when it comes to spontaneity, character development and surprise. I am a huge fan of anything regarding Ancient Egypt, so that's why I found the book to be most enjoyable." --Christina, Goodreads

"Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book (as if you didn't already get that from my previous excitement). I was in the much dreaded reading slump for a long time, and this delightful book made me rediscover my love of reading again. I am forever indebted to this book...I do hope to read more books by these authors soon. I recommend this book to people who enjoy reading about Egyptian mythology, or just about anything. Because this book is just that marvelous." --Elizabeth Chang, Goodreads

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: This strange tale starts off a bit slow but with the uplifting ending was really worth it. I highly recommend for fans of Egyptian mythology.

I read this when the lovely Kate and Leah Rooper were my mentees in #PitchWars and I can tell you, this story kept me reading until the morning. Once I read it I knew I had to work with them and learn more about Jane and Anubis and King Tut! It's such a fun story with intrigue and excitement and OMG ...more

This is a great Young Adult Fantasy book that I've received for review from the publisher. The novel might not speak to some individuals keen on Adult Contemporary, but it sure did to me, and I'm not an immense Young Adult fan.

The storyline:

Jane's an unusual teenager, in the sense that she doesn't l ...more

I was hooked from the start (no pun intended!)

The premise was intriguing, the story is well-written, and I had a lot of fun with it! King Tut was definitely not what I expected, and Anubis and his wisecracks cracked me up. :)

I couldn't put the book down, it kept me up waaaay past my bedtime...

Fluoride, Uranium, Carbon, Potassium! This book came out of left field and wowed me.

Jane's a bit of geek who dies too young and has donated her body to science. Little does she expect for that body to be turned into a mummy for research and for her soul to be sent to the Duat. Or that they would lea ...more

Received from entangled crave for a honest review.

This is a really creative and fun book. It’s the first time I had ever seen this type of plot and concept. At times I felt for Jane especially since she never really lived in life so all these new feelings, emotions, and interactions are all new to ...more

Jane Unwrapped is an extremely unique fantasy novel! There have been so many books with Greek mythology, and I’ve read quite a few of them, but reading a romance story with the Egyptian mythology is definitely a first for me!

So we all know that I totally pick books based on the titles and covers. So when I heard about this one I was like "YAAAASSSSSS a mummy book!!! Love it." I am really glad that I did pick this one. It was a little out of the norm and it held my attention. If I had not had a ton of stuff going on thi ...more

I loved this book - I couldn't put it down.

Jane Unwrapped a unique spin on a fresh topic - Ancient Egypt/Egyptian Mythology. I was completely drawn in from the first page to the last. I particularly loved the moral dilemmas that the protagonist, Jane struggles with throughout. I also really enjoyed ...more

This book has everything- romance, action, adventure- all weaved into a modern day 'retelling'. Being a huge Percy Jackson fan it was great to find a book that had the same sort of idea (ancient gods in modern day) but more YA and to my current taste (Don't worry I still love Percy!). My only reason ...more

By Pam October 12, 2015

The plot is interesting somehow, in that I don't normally read stories of modern-day female protagonists being paired up with people from myths or from centuries ago. I do kinda wonder what happens later on in the future with Jane changing history up a little bit in the story.
