The Valley of the Kings by Terrance Coffey - TBC Review
There were a few little things which jarred. Pharaoh Teppy? Sorry, I’d have preferred Tepi. Actually, the king’s name was Amenhotep IV. Before becoming Akhenaten, of course. And Princess Senpaten? Wasn't it always Ankhsenpaaten? In fairness, most readers looking for a good story would prefer the author’s suggestion for the name. For which I salute him.
The Amarna Royal family of Egypt’s 18th dynasty was a tragic one. Coffey retells the story with skill. He attempts to fill in the gaps in the story, for which one has to admire him. I recommend this for readers who enjoy stories of political intrigue. Those who love Egyptology and magic with a touch of fantasy and journeys back in time would also enjoy this.
ABOUT THE BOOK
About This Book
In the year 1355 BCE, the land of Egypt was the superpower of the known world. King Tut’s father, Akenaten, the so-called ‘heretic pharaoh,’ and his wife, Queen Nefertiti, are on the verge of catapulting Egypt into a revolution that will forever divide its people and rip the most powerful empire on the earth from its foundation.
Inspired by the actual Hittite and Amarna letters of 14th century BCE, ‘Valley of the Kings: The 18th Dynasty’ is an epic novel of intrigue, passion, and betrayal, resurrecting the thrilling story of a singular leader whose beliefs were both visionary and disastrous.
