An excellent war chronicle!

Even though I enjoyed Book One more, I still felt this was an excellent book, and gave it 5 stars, as did my fellow readers.

Too much war and battle scenes described in horrific details for my taste, but that was the Civil War era of brother against brother for the throne. So despite my squeamishness, I found this to be an excellent war chronicle.

Since I am now on book 2, I am beginning to understand all the confusing names, and the different names for the same characters in this book.

I am now looking forward to picking up my Kindle, and starting Book 3 -Tausret!

Great story

Another great story of ancient Egypt. Life, death and court intrigue abound throughout this well written story. King Seti is the King of ancient Egypt.

A good read

I recommend the book to those who are interested in ancient Egypt. The book is a good blend of history and fiction. I cannot wait to read the next book of this series.

The last chapter in the story of the Ramessian legacy

The story continues with Seti taking control and the lengths taken to secure the throne leading to the final chapter in the story of Ramesses 11 and all the inter fighting between families who think they have more rights to rule than others.

The Fall Continues

Just started reading. Book 2 is following in the footsteps of Book 1.
A good solid read.

A very good story

As with the first book in the trilogy, the story is compelling, the characterisation is good and I found myself gripped. As with book 1, I found the pace was slowed and interrupted when the same scene was told from a couple of different characters’ viewpoints. I could accept a few sentences to re-tell then pick up the action with the next character, but I found the re-telling of the same scene slowed things down too much. Probably only happened 2 or 3 times but enough to be a distraction. Another thing that prevents me giving 5 stars is the use of ancient terms for the gods and for upper and lower Egypt. I totally accept this is for authenticity. But the problem with reading on a Kindle rather than a paperback is it’s not straightforward to flick back to the beginning and check the author’s note for the explanation of the ancient vs Greek names. So, other than Heru, who I grasped was Horus, I struggled with the names of gods. I grasped that Waset was Thebes and Men-Nefer Memphis, but I’m sorry to say I’m not a good enough student of Egyptology to have remembered the others – so I found this annoying. A distraction in an otherwise very well written and believable tale.
