At fourteen, Ramses, the second son of the Pharaoh Seth, must begin to pass a series of royal tests designed to build his mental and physical prowess-or break him. Is Seth planning to leave the world's most powerful empire to Ramses, and not his corrupt brother, Shaanar? Before he knows it, the younger prince is surrounded by enemies and turning to his friends: Moses, the brilliant young Hebrew; Setau, the snake charmer and mage; Ahmeni; the frail scholar; and Set and Nefertari, the two beautiful women Ramses loves.
And so begins the journey of the hero the world has yet to know... Let the saga begin.

Ramses Son of Light
Gives life to an amazing person and founding western culture. I could picture the energy of Egypt and the wonders that were being created.
I am still trying to decide if the author is just not very skilled writer or if he fell victim to bad translation of his work. Either way, the book is really not worth the money and time. And it is grossly historically inaccurate and romanticized.
