✔ PREQUEL--Archaeologist Daniel Sterling risked his career and reputation in order to save an artifact from the clutches of a tomb robber. Now faced with unemployment and snubbed by his colleagues, he isn't sure what he should do next until he catches wind of more grave robbing schemes. Inspired by Daniel's endeavor, his friend Faris Al-Rashid teams up with him to beat the grave robbers to their next target: a royal tomb in The Valley of the Kings. Yet when the magnetic Aisha joins their expedition, the vulnerable artifacts are the least of Daniel's worries . . .

Also, I have to say, I'm glad to finally be commenting on this!  It was so hard not to when reading for the contest!  #IronLaceAwards
Wow, this is awesome! I can see why it won, hehe. I love your use of foreign terms, it really makes the story seem exotic, and the curse seems really cool. @goldenmedallionawards

Amen! I think messing with graves in general is a bad thing! But ancient ones are even more dangerous!

I think thieves are smarter nowadays. They know it's not just about the jewelry. smuggling mummies brings money too!
I love that you stick us right into the middle of a grave robbery/artifact rescue mission!  The banter between Daniel and his nervous guide remind me of the Indiana Jones stories.  :)
