This enthralling international best-seller is a seductive re-creation of the glory and opulence of ancient Egypt. It spurred a national craze for all things Egyptian in France, and has sold over two million copies worldwide.

The new Pharaoh, Ramses, aspires to greatness of a magnitude undreamed of by mortal men. But to thwart his dreams, a gaggle of fiends, including a sorcerer, invaders, and his own brother awaits him. Now he will learn whether the friends of his youth - people such as Moses and the aging Greek poet, Homer - can truly be trusted.

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Briansmom | 2/5/2014

    " The first book in this series, I liked; this one, I didn't. I really, really wanted to like it, and I tried. I was fascinated by the author's idea of the Moses/Ramses friendship and was eager to read his spin on that. But I didn't even finish it. (Way) Too much dialogue, and too many really non-believable situations. Also I found the many anachronisms really distracting. "

    " It's ok as long as you don't look to it for facts "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beowulfwulf | 1/17/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 12/2/2013

    " I am not sure why I am continuing to read the series...the books are so-so. A bit boring...especially in French. I guess I really am reading them because they were such a big hit in France. Yawn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teri Cooper | 12/2/2013

    " Dazzling and kinda trashy ancient Egyptian version of 90210! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mishaal Alsudairy | 7/24/2013

    " A good way to know about history through reading a very nice novel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katina stewart | 7/20/2013

    " *sigh* he paints ancient Egypt as a highly developed society concerned with law and order, art, religion and peace. I feel as though I am there with the characters and it makes me want to visit Egypt! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Warren Long | 4/2/2013

    " Writing suffers from being translated from French. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alejandra Aristizábal | 11/30/2012

    " The author evolves along the main character, revealing now the affairs and issues of a man nearby the power, trying not to lose his will and his principles in the net of Administration. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany Smith | 4/3/2012

    " This was a great continuation of the Ramses saga, but I question the historical validity of this second book. If you aren't looking for much of the historical truth that is generally embedded in historical fiction, you will enjoy this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pat | 1/29/2012

    " Very poorly written. The dialog seems to be on a beginning reader level. I did not finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pumpernickel | 1/5/2012

    " Amazing how he describes ancient Egypt, in so many details. The back cover is right : as if he were actually there, in a past lifetime or something... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lois | 12/31/2011

    " Second in the Egyptian series. Interesting to know the Bible stories during this period, and have the writer coming from the perspective of Ramses and his family with Moses and the Hebrew people as "other characters." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/6/2011

    " need to re-read this book before I comment further "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 6/4/2011

    " A continuation of the story. I loved all five volumes. The books helped me imagine I was in Egypt......mgc "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 1/1/2011

    " If you have read Son of Light this book is the next natural progression in the saga of Ramses' reign.

    It is equally as entertaining and easy to read as Volume 1.

    Don't pass up the opportunity to enjoy the next stage of Ramses life as Pharaoh. "
