Love the concept, Chris. It sounds like by combining two story ideas you’re finding a full character and adventure.
My note on the blurb would be to continually raise the stakes. For example:
First, she must leave her secure job and her teenagers alone
Next, she must agree to re-enter a world she left behind (for good reason – ie: personal/psychological/relationship “danger” – does her ex-life partner and other parent to her children work in that world?)
Next, she must reassume the identity/characteristics that she detested
Next, she gets caught up in a murder-for-books ring
Etc… Until the ultimate danger – her life on the line, her family in peril
Finally, she must confront the danger or lose it all …
Hope that helps. I’m a big fan of history and archaeology and books. Can’t wait to read more about this story.
