The most brilliant adventure of a Pharoah awakening Egypt.
on 21 August 2001
When Ramesses fufilled the dream of uniting all of Egypt and creating peace in Egypt but then died his decendants did not strengthen the law of Ma'at upon Egypt, therefore allowing the three lands of Egypts to split up. A few thousand years after Ramesses death Pharoah Pia, a wise and peaceful ruler, has allowed the decay of Egypt and since he is in the south tribes from the north of the Delta have decided to take Egypt from the control of the Nubian king. Now Pia has to rise from his slumber and with his wife fight against the opposers of Ma'at to win back his country, but it won't be easy, as the rebels leader is an enemy worthy of Pia. Although the book contains parts where there are long parts they are needed as they represent the authors belief of mixing facts with drama. The amazing life of both the Pharoah and his opponent give us the knowledge to know everything about Egypt and its rulers. It is a brilliant followup to the Ramesses series and must be read.
