Jane Unwrapped an adventure set in the Egyptian underworld

Pair of young Saanich authors recently published a young adult mythological fantasy

Saanich residents Leah and Kate Rooper recently published a young adult mythological fantasy, Jane Unwrapped.

Leah and Kate Rooper are a pair of young Saanich authors.

The pair recently published a young adult mythological fantasy, Jane Unwrapped, with the publishing house Entangled Teen Crave.

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.

Jane Unwrapped can be purchased through entangledpublishing.com/jane-unwrapped/.
