An epic re-creation of the exhilarating and mysterious time when the Sun King ruled Egypt, Ramses, the Son of Light, has become the rage in France. With over two million copies sold, it is the greatest publishing phenomenon to hit the shelves there in 20 years. Rameses is only 14 when his father, the Pharaoh Seti, begins testing his true mettle. Being the younger of two sons, the proud Ramses has a problem with being relegated to second place. Now, with increasing attention from the Pharaoh, along with the formal and military education afforded him, he dares to hope that he may inherit the empire after all. This spell-binding novel of court intrigue, treason, and romantic adventure is a rare look at Egyptian history. The entire family will enjoy the inside view of daily life and the secret rituals involved in being a pharaoh's son. Veteran narrator George Guidall's reading of this enchanting historical novel is matchless. Download and start listening now!

    " Much better in the original French than in translation, Christian jacq brings ancient Egypt to life as though he actually lived there. Based on historically accurate detail his stories are both captivating and informative and one gets a real feel for the pharaonic culture and plotocs of the era. This and the four volumes that follow are a brilliant expose for the modern world of how life used to be, although he largely avoids the seamyier side of life that must have existed among the less privileged classes. Damn good reading all the same.. "

    " An enjoyable read, especially for anyone with an interest in Egyptian history. I'm certainly going to be reading the other books. Christian Jacq has a fantastic way of really capturing both the splendour of the landscape and the common humanity that links all people, past and present. "

    " I liked this. Never read more in the series despite the unanswered plot threads. I thought it was decent if a little fanciful. I would not consider it accurate but an interesting read about Ancient Egypt. "

    " A Wonderful rendition of both Pharaohs Seti I and Ramses II. I am always curious about what the people in history were really like. I suppose this is as close as I can get to these two characters. They seem close enough to my imagination at least. "
