I saw a review of this author's series of books by an Egyptology professor which said that they were highly informative and full of accurate information, so I bought them and found that I agreed. There are lots of quotes from the ancient Egyptians themselves which give a real flavor of the times, and the life stories of each pharaoh are described in an exiting and easy to follow way. A really good read for both me and my 13 year old son!

Susanna Thomas contributed to the "Leaders of Ancient Egypt" series with her book Rameses II: Pharaoh of the new kingdom. Her book is very well researched and documented.
As a child, I remember experiencing wording such as found on page 14: "Toward the end of the eighteenth dynasty, many of Egypt's territories in the Near East - Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria -- had been LOST, and one of Seti's ambitions was to restore Egypt's Syrian empire." The word "lost" was very troublesome to me back then, as it is now -- as how could such an enormous parcel of land, be LOST? I took exception the first time I discovered it in the framework of the text, and though I had less problem with page 23, which read: "The couple was eventually buried in a joint tomb tha has recently been DISCOVERED at Saqqara.", a "red flag" was beginning to be hoisted. On page 24, I found: "Seti briefly won control of the city and erected a victory stela, most of which is NOW LOST." I became edgy, when "In the winter they went to Luxor, where they lived in palaces, NOW LOST near the main temple at Karnak...", found on page 32. I decided to make "note" of all this, when I arrived at page 51 to find the author states: "Kadesh and the region of Amurru had been Egyptian territory since the reign of Tuthmose III, 200 years before. These areas WERE LOST during the reign of Akhenaten about a hundred years before."
Years later, I was able to understand what was meant by "lost" but at the time, it baffled me. I inquired of another librarian who shared the same feelings with me, that she too, thought "how could something so huge, be lost!" If I was confused, my
colleague was baffled, surely others will be stumped. This was the only detraction, but enough to be a distraction.
