Egypt in 1476 BCE is on the brink of disaster…
The female Pharaoh Hatshepsut has crushed a bloody rebellion, but she invoked the treacherous god Seth to annihilate her enemies. Now he is devouring her soul. But she needs Seth’s power even more to defeat the warlords of Canaan and Syria, who have vowed to destroy the woman who dares rule over men. Heartbreaking tragedies challenge the female Pharaoh’s fi delity, faith and even her sanity. Egypt reaches unprecedented power and wealth as she conquers everything but her own heart.
Based on the true story of ancient Egypt’s female Pharaoh Hatshepsut, The Eye of Re recreates the passionate saga of history’s fi rst female ruler. Award-winning author Patricia L. O’Neill’s ground-breaking research and vivid prose bring to life the unjustly maligned woman behind the legends. The Eye of Re is the gripping conclusion to The Hatshepsut
Trilogy: Her Majesty the King, The Horus Throne and The Eye of Re.
Very good story, told very well from a historical context. Have read all three in the series and did not want them to end! Better than Wilbur Smith's Pharaoh series - more plausible and explains the aspects of Egyptian religion better. Would definitely recommend!
Read them all, lived them all!
Really intriguing, couldn't put these books down. I am sad they have come to an end!
I absolutely love this trilogy!
The most well written book about Hatshepsut the last female Pharaoh that I have read as yet.
I am so glad that I accidentally stumbled upon these books, as I will never forget the great love, loss, heartache and pain that was perfectly captures in these timeless books.
Thank you for giving me books I couldn't wait to read, that never helped put me to sleep and kept me amused on my train trips to work.
