    Wonderful books!

    Historically accurate, and (for instance) in the trilogy “the Lords of the Two Lands” she gives the reader an thorough “afterward” that clarifies what is historically known about that time, especially as it relates to the novels. I have many non fiction books on ancient Egypt, its a hobby of mine, and as she has written, the king who fought the invaders was terribly brutalized in the battle in which he died. Other facts, the gifts given to the royal ladies after the war was over, are exactly as she describes them.

    Aside from the “Lords of the Two Lands” Trilogy, I especially love “Child of the Morning” about the female pharaoh Hatshepsut…..She was a truly remarkable woman, but after her death her nephew and heir destroyed all records of her existence….they were only rediscovered in modern times.

    “The Twelfth Transforming” is a very dark historical novel about the very strange pharaoh, Akhenaton….he is famous for being perhaps the first monotheist in history, but as the fictionalized biography describes, he was also a very strange man. His queen Nefertiti, is famous of course, for her extreme beauty…..but there are many questions as to what happened to the two of them, to their daughters, what relationship was Tutanhkamon to Akhenaton, and so on…..

    I have found all of Gedge’s books to worth reading….for those interested in ancient Egypt, or just interested in a totally different time and place, which she brings to life!
