Thus continues the six-novel Raising Up Pharaoh epic, set among the emerging city-states and nations in the Fertile Crescent at the dawn of written history-as they plant the cultural seeds of today's world.
The series is written for readers of all ages. The tone is intense, yet controlled by zooming back the lens to avoid needless close-ups of violence and sexuality. The tale unfolds through the differing viewpoints of the orphans, the couple, others drawn to them, and their foes.
The setting of this fifth book extends from what is now called the Iraqi desert south to the Delta, through the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea to the Indus River Delta in Pakistan, through the Gulf of Aden into the Red Sea, as-well-as west from Iraq through Saudi Arabia to Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, and Israel. In later books, the setting expands across the Middle East and North Africa. Each book has its own maps.
The diverse cast speaks a pidgin of proto-Indo-European, proto-Afro-Semitic, and various lost languages such as Harappan. The pidgin is presented in modern U.S. English.
The Raising Up Pharaoh novels were edited by Dr. Dennis E. Hensley PhD.
