I love egyptian fiction based on historical events and I really wanted to love this one but it is sooooo slow moving - I tried for over 3/4 of it but couldn't finish it because nothing would happen.
Loved the storyline and excellent performance by the narrator. Couldn't stop listening and enjoyed learning more about the Egyptian history spiced up with personality details and royal drama.
Read it a few years ago and loved it, and Cassandra is great reading it. A novel that takes you traveling through time. Can't stop listening.
This is the kind of book that made me wish for a minimum of an hour-long afterword. I loved Alan Drury's book A God Against the Gods, which has rather a different take on a lot of this. There is apparently so much we can never really know about the way these events unfolded – that is part of their attraction. This was enjoyable, although the writing was not particularly compelling. I have enjoyed other of Ms. Moran's books perhaps more. Still, it's entertaining.
I absolutely loved this. You could really see everything happening right before your eyes. Lots of interesting details and character growth. One of my favorite downloads so far
