Book - Return To Thebes
Return To Thebes
Return to Thebes by Allen Drury
Return to Thebes is a brilliant work, and is even better than A God Against the Gods, its predecessor. Return to Thebes' plot has been carefully written by Drury to fit the archaeological theories about what really happened involving Akhenaten and his succesors. Every place and artifact, as well as most of his characters, actually existed! While it does drag at some points, this book will completely absorb you into the world of intrigue that was Egypt's court. Return To Thebes charts the fall of Akhenaten to the beginning of the next dynasty with Ramesses the first.
