Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

HASH(0xa02f65e8) out of 5 stars This Author Rocks! Nov. 6 2013
By J2 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have just discovered Pauline Gedge's books of Egyptian historical fiction. I had already read two books in a series by her and loved them. I found them historically accurate, I learned a great deal; but most of all her storytelling ability is top notch. This is the first of a set of 3 books - I practically inhaled all three of them. I've already picked up another book by Gedge and plan to go through her entire collection.

HASH(0xa02f6834) 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
Format: Mass Market Paperback 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.

HASH(0xa02f67f8) out of 5 stars Kicking myself for not ordering the others in this series May 18 2014
By Historical Fiction Fan - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback 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!

HASH(0xa02f6aec) out of 5 stars Lord of the Two Lands #1 Aug. 24 2014
By david Orcutt - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is as much a work of art, peace, and balance as it is an historical fiction. Gedge brings to life, in brilliant and feeling description, not only the Tao family, but how Egypt must have felt, having it's balance and same-ness interrupted during the reign of the Hyksos kings. I tore through this book in a matter of 4 days and am eager to read the second book in this trilogy. This book will appeal to anyone who has a love of ancient history. It is not a fast-paced action-packed read, but more of a slow journey of smells, sounds, and colors which spring to life a civilization which relished such sensuous experiences.

Must read!

HASH(0xa02f6b4c) out of 5 stars A wonderful true story by the master of ancient Egyptian history novels. July 2 2013
By gilly8 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This trilogy: "Lord of the Two Lands" of which this is the first book,(The Hippopotamus Marsh) is an excellent telling of the war against the conquerors of Egypt by descendents of the last Pharaohs.

It is based on the true can check them w/ any good reference on Ancient Egypt. Pauline Gedge makes the characters come alive, and their time and different way of life make sense....

I don't want to give any plot spoilers!

Just be sure you read her "afterward" which summarizes the known history of this period, to see how well she researched the era.

Highly recommended!
