Description

Despite the tremendous shock of the Battle of Kadesh, Ramses has not managed to bring the formidable Hittite might to its knees. Rather than continue the struggle, he decides to engage in negotiation.But more important than anything to Ramses is the love he bears the Great Royal Consort, and he decides to offer Nefertari the most fabulous of gifts: at Abu Simbel two temples will be built - symbols of their eternal love. Meanwhile shadows are gathering, from Nubia to the sovereign's own capital of Pi-Ramses and Ramses must come face to face with Moses, the childhood friend whom he had lost sight of for so many years: Moses, who has returned to Egypt to demand the exodus of the Hebrew people.

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...
