    If you ever wished you could have been alive in ancient Egypt, “Amarnan Kings Series is the book series for you. This fourth episode in the series begins at a 1960 archaeological site in Syria. Buried in an unusual cliff-side setting is an Egyptian tomb, with walls literally covered in fine printing which tells a story – this story. As the interpreter begins to read the writing for taping and transcription, we are transported to a period of time thousands of years earlier, and witness an unfolding drama involving Pharaohs, royal families, and pretenders to the throne. At this point the story switches to a first person account of events as recorded in the tomb. The author seamlessly transports us through time to a front row seat as history happens before our very eyes.

    If you have an interest in ancient Egyptian history, fictional or otherwise, this book will fascinate you. The author’s attention to detail is almost eerily convincing. One gets the notion that Overton has been transported through time in order to be precisely accurate in his descriptions of the life, culture, and the superstitions of that time. When he vividly describes a desert journey, you will become thirsty. When he relates the torture imposed on various “enemies” of the King, you will feel their pain. When he walks you through ancient temples to forgotten gods, you will experience a sense of respectful awe. This story covers many years of time, and cannot adequately be condensed to a few paragraphs. However, the story told herein reads like a true story of a fictional cast of characters. This book will draw you in from the start, and not let you go until it is time to start the next episode in this series. I highly recommend this book, as well as the rest of the Amarnan Kings series. This is a journey you will be glad you took.
