Product Description

Review

"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

I was somewhat disappointed in The King's Man. I have always liked Pauline Gedge's style since picking up Child of the Morning in 1979. I've read everything she's written, but this is not her finest work. It's not even close. The first two volumes in this series were interesting and held my attention, less so this last volume of the trilogy. I was really drawn in to the life of Huy in the first two books, but in some ways I felt that Gedge was running out of steam in the last book. The build-up of the first two sort of lost momentum and in fact was somewhat anti-climactic. Then, instead of ending with some resolution she ends with an historical rundown that is disconnected from part real-part fictional character she had created. I think in part the effort of writing a trilogy instead of single volume work may have caused issues. Her best work is her single volume works, The Twelfth Transforming (containing some of the same characters as this trilogy) is a good example of Gedge at her best. Let's hope her next effort is back to her old self.

Last in a trilogy Nov. 26 2011
By Anja - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is about the Seer, which we have read about in two other books that were fabulous.
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.
