"A mesmerizing tale of ambition, fate and wisdom…. The plot unfolds in stately fashion, with Gedge’s extensive knowledge of Egyptian culture on sumptuous display throughout…. Contemplative in its first half, more taut and dramatic in the second, it is a book to savour, a satisfying conclusion to an impressive and awe-inspiring trilogy." - The Globe and Mail

a real man and is believable. It is easy to read and
Now he is older, but still looks young. He has all the trappings now of the very wealthy. He also is the work horse for Amenhotep III, whom he knew since the Pharaoh was a child.
Frankly, I was disappointed in the story. He does only one scrying, but seemingly has headaches all the time (supposedly from scrying) and is hooked on poppy. He is still searching for his answer to the book of Toth.
While it was written very well, I wasn't happy about how things went with Huy. All he did was be the king's man and questioned the interpretations of his dreams and dealing with Anubis and his hyenas he always saw. No scrying, time for himself or more about the man. His life is summed up in the end when there could have been a lot more.
I will always love Gedge for her great writing ability and subjects of ancient Egypt. I wanted more.
