5.0 out of 5 stars a compelling series, 6 Nov. 2013
This review is from: The Amarnan Kings, Book 2: Scarab - Smenkhkare (Kindle Edition)
An excellent read for lovers of both ancient egyptian history and fiction.The author has taken sparse facts known about this era and woven a fascinating story around them. Revolving around the life of one girl with royal blood and her connections with several kings of the armarnan era and the conspiracy and intrigue between the royals their politicians and armies. The story is interwoven with insights and known facts about how the ancient egyptians used to live and the author s descriptions actually leave you feeling the intense heat of the sun and smelling the smells of the towns of kemet and the river iteru.
There is something for everyone in this series of books, love, adventure,murder, intrigue, conspiracy, history and although mainly a work of fiction, for anyone who knows a little about the history of the time the storyline seems quite plausible.
Iam just about to start book 4 of the series. Can't wait to read what happens next.

This review is from: The Amarnan Kings, Book 2: Scarab - Smenkhkare (Kindle Edition)
This book is a gripping and at times inhibiting continuation of the 1st book of The Amarnan Kings Book 1: Ahkenaten. Book 2 gives accurate details of historical Egyptian facts while creating a gripping story line. Can't wait 2 read the next 1 and will b purchasing the kindle fire version immediately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second book in the saga, 2 Jan. 2013

This review is from: The Amarnan Kings, Book 2: Scarab - Smenkhkare (Kindle Edition)
As an avid reader of Ancient Egyptian fiction/fact, I found this and the first book 'Scarab' full of adventure plus historical facts. I know we will never know everything that happened so long ago but this story is plausible and a valid alternative to other novels I have read. Description of Ancient Egyptian life is very good too. Smenkhare is a pharaoh I knew very little about so this has added to my knowledge of that era.
If you love all things Ancient Egyptian try it!
