Smenkhkare dies from his wounds and Tutankhamen is gravely wounded Ay takes over and sends Horemheb in pursuit of Smenkhkare s retreating army This is all leading up to the next installment when Ay and Horemheb vie for the position of Pharaoh of EgyptThe author is gifted at transporting you into the time period with all your five senses One chapter that describes the losing of a hand by Jebu the General of the Amorite and Hittite army is descriptively graphic By the way this is also one of the minor tales that are thrown in and which detracts from the main story line Very little is known about Smenkhkare and Tutankhamen because their histories were blotted out after they died The author has fleshed out their stories in a very credible way Although Tutankhamen s mummified body shows he might have died in a different way then portrayed in this book But a riveting book none the less and one well worth reading if you like ancient Egyptian stories There is always a Who s Who and What s What in each book of the series as well as The Main Characters and Places There is also a list of the Gods and what they were worshiped for They definitely help in the pronunciation of all the
