Book Description

Sept. 4 2007 Lords of the Two Lands (Penguin Canada) (Book 1)

After a gradual and mostly bloodless invasion, Egypt has fallen into the hands of a foreign power known as the “Rulers of the Upland.” Using subtle means of political power and economic country, plundering its riches and slowly subverting its religion and culture.

But there is one family in Thebes, claiming descent from the last true King of Egypt, that cannot accept the rule of the foreign king Apepa. Defying him becomes the only clear option for the persecuted yet proud Seqenenra Tao, Prince of Weset, whose shocking revolt sets in motion a series of events that will either destroy his family or resurrect a dynasty and an entire way of life for Egypt.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD PORTAYAL OF ANCIENT EGYPT LIFE April 8 2009
This book sat on my bookshelf for about two years before I read it. Once I started it I could not put it down. I have always had a passion for ancient Egypt, and plan to go there one day.
It encouraged me to read the rest in the series, which I am currently doing.
I have been a Pauline Gedge fan for a long time, starting with Child of the Morning.
She also lives near Wainwright Alberta where my daughter-in-law used to cash out her groceries at the grocery store.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Egyptological fiction writers I've read. Makes the ancient Ones come alive with great authenticity April 25 2012
By Sarah E Benware - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Ms. Gedges writes with great authenticity and zeal. After years of studying Egyptology, it is evident that her research is profound as she brings Egypt alive again. I am thrilled that I rediscovered this author and that her books are being brought to the public's attention again. I just can't put these books down.
5.0 out of 5 stars Positively Addictive! July 14 2014

This is the first book in a triology. Beware! You will be hooked and be unable to put them down. Love, love, love Pauline Gedge's books. Just wish they were available on Kindle and Audible. I felt like I knew these characters personally.
4.0 out of 5 stars Kicking myself for not ordering the others in this series May 18 2014
By Historical Fiction Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Wasn't sure I'd like this one, so I only got the first volume in the series. Now I wish I had ordered the others! This was good, though a little different than my usual favorites in that it was focused on a male character. Most of the books I've read about ancient Egypt focused on a female lead.

Pauline Gedge is an excellent writer, at least for my tastes, though her characters aren't always painted in a likeable fashion [Lady of the Reeds is one example - the main character in that book has some serious shortcomings and does some downright rotten things], but this book's main character is one you consistently root for.

Looking forward to reading the next book!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Historical fiction Sept. 6 2013
By Bill Stoker - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book, even though I knew the general history and the long term outcome it was gripping. Wish I had ordered the other two in the series earlier. I hate having to wait to find out the specifics of what happens to Kamose and Appepa. The vibrant picture of everyday life in ancient Egypt just makes it all that much better. Ms. Gedge paints that picture slowly and subtly. Just takes a little to get into the book.
