Christian Jacq; Mary Feeney. The final book of the Ramses series. Overall, I thought the series was too fantasy-ish for my taste. This button opens a dialog that displays additional images for this product with the option to zoom in or out. Tell us if something is incorrect. The historical story of Phaoroh Ramses is so magnificent, and from what we know of Ramses, we was an amazing leader. These books could have been so much grander if all the magic and witchcraft where left out. Oh yeah, and if the writing were better.

Christian Jacq is a French author and Egyptologist. He has written several novels about ancient Egypt, notably a five book suite about pharaoh Ramses II, a character whom Jacq admires greatly. Jacq's interest in Egyptology began when he was thirteen, and read History of Ancient Egyptian Civilization by Jacques Pirenne. This inspired him to write his first novel. He first visited Egypt when he was seventeen, went on to study Egyptology and archaeology at the Sorbonne, and is now one of the world's leading Egyptologists. By the time he was eighteen, he had written eight books.

In the final novel in the bestselling series, Christian Jacq writes of the Hittite king who wants Ramses to marry his daughter, while revolt is brewing among the revenge-driven Libyans.

I didn't want it to end. I had read first "The light of Stone" series, and then Ramses. When I put the book down, I felt like I was saying good-bye to long lost friends who you promise to keep in touch with, but you know in your heart won't happen.

Jacq has the ability to keep the reader entertained while gaining an education in ancient Egyptology. He proves that you don't have to use slutty language, graphic sexual scenes, or detailed physical descriptions of injuries sustained in war to keep the reader wanting to learn more.

Critics of the series need to remember this is a work of FICTION, not a history book. The fiction, however, covers the period of the rule of Seti, and then Ramses, who became Pharaoh. The books intertwine a story filled with intrigue, mystery, love, betrayal and war. I felt like I had traveled back in time, and was taking part in the daily living as an Egyptian. The books cover characters who are poor farmers, with descriptions of their clothing, food eaten, dwellings and customs while at the same time taking you into the inner workings of the elite, including Ramses himself. The reader is education on the mythology, religion and various Gods of the period.

This entire series will stay with me, and these books will be some of the few that don't leave my library.

Entertaining. Impressively researched. Authentic Egyptian landscape and good, if simple, history. Annoying , in parts, because plot is manipulative with similarities from novel to novel. Repeats same tricks from book to book: poison, murder, evil brothers, evil generals. Won’t go into details, other reviewers have done that well. In conclusion I’ll give it four stars because it’s a good two day read and ends well.

Ok. I'll admit it. I did read the whole series. I got one for free and bought the rest on Amazon. My take on the whole thing is that the characters would have needed a lot of work to be made two-dimensonal. The plot was of a quality I haven't seen since my days in Junior High School. Things I just didn't get: I could see the power struggle before he is king (Book 1) and during the first part of his reign (Book 2), but towards the end it was getting impossible to believe that anyone would go against the Pharoh. It would seem that there were only six or seven patriots loyal to Egypt or simply to Ramses. Everyone else even the highest governent offical was just a party hack waiting to get a crack at the king. By book 5 it was like the Keystone Kriminals plotting against the wise and all-powerful Pahroh. The history needed a serious re-write. The Author had to juggle around a lot of serious problems. The hundreds of Children that Ramses had are disposed of with a royal decree to adopt !! then for the rest of the story they are mosty ignored Ramses never even speaks to one as far as I can recall. His marriage to his daughter is also a delicate subject that is glossed over rather neatly.
I read them but I can't really reccomend them and unlike most books I get all the way through I know that I will never have the desire to pick them up again.

In the concluding story of the Ramses saga the middle-aged king is under pressure from the Hittites to prove peace is at hand by marrying the emperor's daughter. This would mean renouncing Iset the Fair, who became the queen after the passing of Nefetari, the beloved queen of Egypt. This presented a real dilemma for the king: nothing short of peace was at stake but the king must uphold the law of ma'at. What is the king to do?
Ramses would also have to deal with Uri-Teshoop who's scheming to undermine the peace and a growing threat from the Libyans, who would love to conquer Egypt. Ramses continues to steer the ship of state through these turbulent waters relying on leadership, genius, magic, and a little help from the gods to defeat the forces of evil that threaten to undermine Egypt.
The story ends almost where it began with the king slumped beneath the acacia tree he planted in the first year of his reign. His faithful sandal-bearer, Ahmeni, was at his side writing down the story of the life of the greatest pharaoh, Ramses the Great.

This is the fifth in a five part series that really manages to blend history and full-blown fiction. Jacq's Egypt comes alive and jumps off the page, stealing you away to a world where magic might just be real and all those dry history stores come to life. I was really surprised at who "the good guys" and "the bad guys" turned out to be, and found myself really feeling for the characters in the pages. I highly recommend reading the series in order - you might just catch yourself rereading it, like I did ... wow, I just realized how cheezy that all sounds, but they really are great books.

Well written. The whole series of these books is extreme entertaining. You really feel like you are there.

Though some have dismissed this series as a harliquian romance in Egypt I read this series and Stone of light series every other year or so, they are that good to me and friends who've read them have bought their own copies for same reason; they're a great read.
Ramses is a fascinating figure and his life must have been very interesting to others and still is interesting for us. However, the author repeats same plots over and over again. This series should have been arranged to end on the third book.
