Fall of the House of Ramesses, Book 3: Tausret

Score: 5.00 (votes: 4)

Egypt was at the height of its powers in the days of Ramesses the Great, a young king who confidently predicted his House would last for a Thousand Years. Sixty years later, he was still on the throne. One by one, his heirs had died and the survivors had become old men. When Ramesses at last died, he left a stagnant kingdom and his throne to an old man--Merenptah. What followed laid the groundwork for a nation ripped apart by civil war.

The House of Ramesses falters as Tausret relinquishes the throne upon the death of her husband, King Seti. Amenmesse's young son Siptah will become king until her infant son is old enough to rule. Tausret, as Regent, and the king's uncle, Chancellor Bay, hold tight to the reins of power and vie for complete control of the kingdoms. Assassination changes the balance of power, and, seeing his chance, Chancellor Bay attempts a coup... 

Tausret's troubles mount as she also faces a challenge from Setnakhte, an aging son of the Great Ramesses who believes Seti was the last legitimate king. If Setnakhte gets his way, he will destroy the House of Ramesses and set up his own dynasty of kings.

    Another fantastic series!

    Just wanted to let the author know that I loved this whole series! And I was particularly glad to see a certain character get what he deserved :)

    Max writes a story which is hard to distinguish from historical fact, although he has virtually none to base it on!
    I can read his books over and over and I did just that with book 2!

    Foolish, foolish, Tausret!

    What a foolish woman, Tausret turned out to be! All of her decisions were so without forethought or reason. She was always influenced by her emotions, not be any cleverness on her part. She seemed stupid, actually.

    I loall three of these books by Max Overton. Mr. Overton, can you please write some more books about the new Ramesses dynasty? I know that my fellow readers will be as anxious as I am to read about the next generations of pharaohs.
