It gets a solid "meh" in my book

I really like Brian Lumley's Lovecraftian fiction, so I thought I'd give this novel a shot. It gets a solid "meh" in my book. There are a number of themes that start up and kind of get resolved, but not really, then, uh, aliens come.

I understand some people do not like or appreciate Lumley, and if that is you, then you will probably not enjoy this book. Anyways, I'm a fan of Lumley's writing style, and this is one of the better examples of it. Plus I appreciate the fact that this boom almost seems like a mashup of Robert E. Howard's "Kull", and Norman Mailer's "Ancient Evenings".

From ancient Egypt to modern England, a man searches for the woman he loves and the man who betrayed them both!Khai begins life in ancient Egypt as the son of Pharaoh Khasathut's chief architect. Believing Pharaoh to be a god, Khai is stunned to learn that his leader's chief desires are to deflower young virgins and achieve eternal life through the powers of his black magicians. Khai dares to raise a hand to Pharaoh and is condemned to be a slave.Escaping, Khai flees to neighboring Kush where he earns the rank of general in the army of Queen Ashtarta . . . and a place in Ashtarta's bed.

In modern England, Khai searches for the reincarnated souls of his lover and his betrayer. Khai is amazed by the modern world--television, air conditioning, and especially guns, bombs, and other weapons. Returned to his own time, Khai uses the technologies he saw in the future to rewrite the past. But can he and Ashtarta prevent Khasathut from attaining immortality and using newly-gained alien powers to destroy all of Khem and Kush?Like the Necroscope novels, Khai of Khem is packed with fast-paced action, hair's-breadth escapes, all-consuming love, endless horror, and, in the person of Khai himself, quick wits and bravery in the teeth of danger.
I'll preface this review by warning whoever reads it that I'm a fanboy of Brian Lumley. I understand some people do not like or appreciate Lumley, and if that is you, then you will probably not enjoy this book.

I enjoyed the story thoroughly and would recommend it.
Intriguing story of a time before time, an ancient Egypt that existed before ancient Egypt. Alien hybrid pharaohs, arcane wizardry, and swords. You will not regret this journey with Khai as he grows through untold eons.
Pretty good read I like all of Brian lumleys books. This one took me a little longer to read than others, only because I get into reading for awhile then I don't read for a time. When I do read I consume many books
Liked this book. It s not The Necroscope series but still good. Wish he would write some new books. Waiting...
I love wired books. I love historical books. So for me this book was a gold mine. It could b extremely strange at times but I was hooked from the start
A must have for anyone collecting the works of Lumley. A time spanning adventure that's worth anyone's time to read.
typical Brian Lumley, Descriptive to the point that he takes you there.
So glad i got this book on kindle.
Long before Stargate is Khai of Khem where flying pyramids made their debut. Between London and ancient Kush you'll find Khai and Ashtarta.
