    Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite

    “Scarab – Horemheb: The Amarnan Kings Book 5” by Max Overton is another exciting and action-packed episode in the life of the – presumably – fictional Scarab, a daughter, sister, niece, mother, wife, and grandmother to various Pharaohs of ancient Egypt. This chapter in her life continues to narrate many and varied adventures and misadventures with which she had to cope. Overton writes as if he himself were present during the life of Scarab. He draws upon a wealth of knowledge about ancient Egypt, and communicates such details as to make it necessary to keep reminding oneself this is fiction. In a masterful touch, Overton incorporates Biblical accounts from the book of Exodus into his fictional tale, adding another layer of authenticity to the entire series. Scarab experienced numerous acts of supernatural intervention in her life, as did her brother, Yahmose, from different gods of the time, consistent with many Biblical records.

    Overton’s ardent devotion to the authentic depiction of ancient Egyptian royalty, and the incessant threat of subterfuge, deception, and disloyalty even among family members, rings so true that one can scarcely understand how he could come by his knowledge. This story is not some mediocre fictional account cultivated from some dream he had; rather, this reads like a true historical presentation told in such a way as to consume the reader’s full attention, and place him in the thick of the action. It may well instigate sleep deprivation in the reader, owing to an unquenchable need to continue reading until he reaches the end. Everyone with an inkling of interest in ancient Egypt must read the epic tale of Scarab and the Amarnan Kings.
