I more or less read the book in one go because the story got to me.
The key figure in this book is the Pharaoh Akhenaten, his family (both elders and children). Akhenaten is probably best know for abandoning traditional Egyptian polytheism and introducing worship centered on the Sun. The struggle for power between the Pharaoh and the people who stayed loyal to the old religions forms the main plot. It's a tale of passion, struggle, betrayal and love. I would have liked the book to be longer.
me the way it did! It's absolutely riveting, and beautifully done. I always felt that Akhenaten
was never qualified to be Pharaoh, and I knew he had this "thing" about his father. But the
author took me there...I felt that I was lurking behind a pillar...eavesdropping. Write on, Ms. Reed!
