Review by pauliharman
Perhaps the most depressing and downbeat book in the series so far. A book about loss - Ramses loses people close to him, and this volume also briefly covers the flight of the Hebrews from Egypt, downplaying the biblical story and yet portraying a matter-of-fact believable set of events which one could imagine being the basis of mythology grown up around it.
