Egyptologist Christian Jacq has created in The Stone of Light, a series based on archaeological discoveries made on the western bank of Thebes at Deir el-Medina - the remains of a village named the Place of Truth. The marvellous works of art of Egypt were created and guarded by small secret brotherhoods who lived in communities like that called the Place of Truth.Read more ›
`The Stone of Light' is a combination of action-packed "The Mummy" versus a Rick Riordan novel. It is an exciting, intense read which will delight any budding explorer or adventurer who dabbles in the dark arts and whose heart lies with the past.
Since the death of Ramses the Great, the villagers of the place of truth must produce their best work to honor Egypt's greatest Pharaoh. And as the new master of work, Nefer the silent bears the ultimate responsibility for all he oversees. The question remains if the new Pharaoh Merenpath will follow in his father's footsteps or not? Also Nefer's wife, Ubekhet, has been gifted with the knowledge of the supernatural and now the time has come to prove herself worthy of this gift ~ by seeking out the new found evil which is haunting the place of truth.
Thefts, murders and floods, sorcery and evil, Nefer and Ubekhet must take on this and more as they prepare for the grandest burial Egypt has ever known...
I was so impressed by this breathtaking book full of shocking drama, wonderful premise and colorful characters. It is definitely my chosen book of 2013.
