I enjoyed this first volume of the series so much I ordered the remaining three before I finished it.
He does a great job with developing the character of the young scribe Iker. The books only downside was that only Iker and the prime bad guy gets as good of a treatment. The other characters remain rather flat.
Best for a History fan is the fact that the author remains true to known ancient Egyptian History. No slips into the wrong era or modern times. While the view of Religion may seem strange to a modern reader but it would seem from what we know it was a very religious society.
The plot is fantasy but it doesn't take away from the readers opportunity to live in the era. In fact the story just makes for more interest in the series.
I love Christian Jacq'S books
