The characters are not quite as one-dimensional anymore albeit still far from intriguing and the story flows much smoother. Although the plot is getting a bit repetetive and the dialogues still appear clipped, I'm game for Part 3, only because I want to know what happens next.
Dec 17, Elif rated it liked it. Shelves: not-own , portuguese , The magical Egyptian legends brought vividly to life in their entire magnificent splendor! I have always been fascinated by ancient Egypt for it is a mystifying place of myth and legend, archaic treasures and past rituals that intrigue and dazzle. What makes the Ramses series stand-out is how it blends together historical fact with magical fantasy which adds a touch of supernatural suspense to an exploration of the past.
Gods and Pharaohs, sorcery and evil interwoven amid a convincing world fille The magical Egyptian legends brought vividly to life in their entire magnificent splendor! It is an exciting, intense read which will delight any budding explorer or adventurer who dabbles in the dark arts and whose heart lies with the past.
And as the new master of work, Nefer the silent bears the ultimate responsibility for all he oversees. Thefts, murders and floods, sorcery and evil, Nefer and Ubekhet must take on this and more as they prepare for the grandest burial Egypt has ever known… I was so impressed by this breathtaking book full of shocking drama, wonderful premise and colorful characters.
It is definitely my chosen book of View 1 comment. Jun 26, J. Else rated it really liked it Shelves: ancient-egypt. Book 2 is just as good as the first. This book seemed more full of action. Lots of plot movement, which kept the pages turning!
Paneb's strengths are his passion to his craft, loyalty to his friends, and energy which helps enliven the others in his crew to keep pushing themselves. He is still unfaithful to his wife, though his love for her seems to be growing. I hope to see more maturity in the next book. For now, I still find myself with that love-fustration relationship with this character. Jacq Book 2 is just as good as the first. Jacq does a masterful job of casting suspeicion on different crew members as to who the traitor is!
Someone is working against the Place of Truth, and Jacq keeps shifting your focus on different characters. You're left just as "in the dark" as Nefer is, the master of the Place of Truth who searches for this mysterious evildoer! Jacq marked time better in this book. Some chapters start by saying what year it is in the pharaoh's reign. I'm glad he had greater detail in the passage of time. It helped outline the time it took to construct a royal tomb and temple.
Time passes quickly in each chapter, so it helped a lot to have time more defined. Jacq's details about Egyptian religious beliefs and about the Afterlife and the world around them is so beautiful and enticing. I just love, LOVE these details! It gives the ancient world a level of sophistication and enchantment.
It was a treat when Jacq ventured to Memphis and the great pyramids. I wish there had been more, but this book expanded its reach quite a bit compared to book 1. Each new site in this story was a delight. Another enjoyable book with an array of enjoyable and sometimes frustrating characters.
I can't wait for book 3! Jan 21, Sheffielder rated it liked it. While definitely readable, this book is a bit like a soap opera. We are presented with a series of mysterious happenings, but each of them is resolved within a page or three of being launched. As a result there is no really meaty puzzle to get your teeth into before the author explains all. By the end of the book, little of any significance seems to have changed, and even the old dog has been replaced by an identical new one with the same name.
Disappointing in that regard, but the easy writing While definitely readable, this book is a bit like a soap opera. Disappointing in that regard, but the easy writing style is enjoyable, and at pages you definitely get your money's worth. Feb 10, Phair rated it liked it Shelves: historical-fiction , audio-books.
I only listened to the abridged audio cassette version. Had already listened to Book 1 of the series so this was like revisiting old friends. I enjoyed it but felt this one had no real ending- just a lull in the action and a sense of foreboding for the future leading into the next book.
Nice period feel. Jan 12, Andrea rated it it was amazing. The stories are rich in history and culture and capture the lives of these artisans beautifully. Mar 15, Oscar Riba rated it liked it. Ends up being tedious. Dec 21, Hypatia rated it it was ok Shelves: historical. I'm not enjoying these as much as some of his other series. I suspect a poor translation though, rather than the story itself being bad. I'll finish it, but I definitely prefer his other work.
