In Part II of Christian Jacq's four-part novel exploring ancient Egypt, Ramses the Great has died, and his son, Merenptah, has assumed the throne. The forbidden village protected and overseen by Ramses is home to all of Egypt's greatest artists and the sacred Stone of Light. Relationships between the craftsmen are sacred; however, turmoil has caused unrest and distrust. Howard McGillin describes the turmoil and the power that the village's wise woman must marshal to conquer all evil threats. McGillin powerfully portrays historical traditions, creating enduring impressions of ancient Egypt and its people. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
