I was determined to write this review when I saw "sizhao" telling how this book is "a mediocre fantasy at best". It's a pity that someone who, it seems, don't know nothing about Grant and her reasons for writing, is capable of dismissing her as nothing but a cheap fiction writer who claimed her books to be a historical fact. Well, Grant didn't do "poor research". Actually she didn't do any sort of research at all. EVERYTHING she wrote was from her own personal memory bank where she drew that knowledge in a trance state. Grant didn't know nothing about ancient Egypt or any of the periods she wrote about. Also, she would have never written anything, if there weren't a reason for it, i.e. she only wrote the lives where there was spiritual message to give to readers. She didn't write to entertain people. Grant actually was very reluctant writer who had to push herself to write. And when one thinks how much work there was to bring this knowledge "to the surface" alone, it's not any wonder.
"Sizhao" mentioned many things in this book which seems to be contradictory to historical "facts". Well, in that case it's interesting to note that in her own time her books were praised by their historical accuracy - after undergoing a great deal of careful scrutiny. Pretty well for someone who didn't do any research! I'm not aware of what Egyptologists nowadays know about that ancient culture, and I don't care.Read more ›
It reads like an exciting adventure novel- yet the solidity and internal consistency of her main characters are astounding- and the spiritual gems glistening throughout the narrative are there for anyone to share. The prose is crisp, measured, and not padded and brings the culture and perspective of ancient Egypt directly into the heart and mind of the reader.
I am glad than writer Harold Klemp (Autobiography of a Modern Prophet) recommended this author to me.
If you, like I, have ever visited Egypt you will recall the enormous amount of "information" written about this ancient civilization seems to be quite overwhelming. There are many scholars who disagree about the meaning of various symbols, not the least of which is the mysterious Sphinx. While we can ponder these things, sometimes a beautifully written novel, all based, no doubt on imagination, can bring the whole mystery alive...and that is exactly what Joan Grant does.
This novel was written back in the 30s and has an old-fashioned flavour, which I enjoyed enormously. Others may not. I found myself lost in the ancient times, walking along the banks of the Nile and seeing (in my mind) the wonderful landscape in all its glory.
So if you enjoy the romantic imagery of ancient times, you will thoroughly enjoy this novel!!
Those quibbles aside and probably only important to a history specialist the book remains fine entertainment with believable Ancient Egypt Characters that stay in reasonable 20th century BC behavioral type.
Glad I bought it

I am reading this book now. The writing isn't terrific, but the story is enchanting if you like to know more about ancient Egypt and its cultural, spiritual energy.Published on January 1, 2013 by Ka te Ari Ashton
The book is otherwise in great condition but is missing the "Author's Note" pages. The table of contents says that there is an "Author's Note" but I dont see it in the book. Read morePublished on August 29, 2012 by ad
