Title: The Anubis Gates. And I can only say that Tim Powers does it brilliantly here – even with all the foreshadowing, any predictability goes out of the window pretty soon and we are surprised with many twists and a-ha moments when everything comes together in a very tightly woven plot. The Anubis Gates is definitely an excellent novel, well-paced, fun, and very well written.
