Description

Ramses has not managed to subdue the formidable Hittites. But he decides to negotiate, not fight, for the love that Ramses bears his Consort Nefertari surpasses his enjoyment of war. He also decides to erect two fabulous temples at Abu Simbel as symbols of their eternal love. But meanwhile, Rameses must face Moses, his childhood friend who has now returned to Egypt to demand the exodus of the Hebrew people. Faced with these dangers, will the vigilance of Pharoah's loyal servants and the magic of the Lady of Abu Simbel be sufficient to protect the Son of the Light?

4th book of the series of Ramses. I don't know why I kept reading them, for they are not very good! Once you pop...
