Overview

A vivid re-creation of the majesty and mystery of ancient times, Ramses has swept across France, creating a national craze for all things Egyptian and becoming the most spectacular phenomenon in French publishing of the last twenty years. Here, portrayed as never before, is an unforgettable pharaoh and a land steeped in mysticism and enchantment. A monumental epic with over two million copies sold, Ramses has at least come to America to touch our imaginations with the stuff of dreams...

A WARRIOR KING

Ramses faces the challenge of his reign when the powerful Hittites declare war against Egypt. His powerful bodyguard, Serramanna, suspected of treason, has been arrested, leaving Ramses to lead his ragged army alone. His impossible objective: to seize the enemy's impregnable fortress at Kadesh. Yet even as the Pharaoh successfully leads his men onward, other dark forces conspire to stop him. Ramses' sister has sided with their brother Shaanar against him, and his beloved Nefertari lies dying: the victim of a sorcerer's evil spell. With spies everywhere, only Ramses can save her. But will the gods grant the battle-weary king the strength?

What People are saying about this

J. Suzanne Frank
"A plot as sinuous as the River Nile, with characters lying like crocodiles in the shallows....This book makes ancient egypt as relevant and 3-D as today's news." -- Author of Reflections in the Nile
