The Eye of Re is the gripping conclusion to The Hatshepsut Trilogy: Her Majesty the King, The Horus Throne and The Eye of Re.
Based on the true story of ancient Egypts female Pharaoh Hatshepsut, The Eye of Re recreates the passionate saga of historys first female ruler. Award-winning author Patricia L. O'Neill's ground-breaking research and vivid prose bring to life the unjustly maligned woman behind the legends.
Egypt in 1476 BCE is on the brink of disaster. The female Pharaoh Hatshepsut has crushed a bloody rebellion, but she invoked the treacherous god Seth to annihilate her enemies. Now he is devouring her soul. But she needs Seth's power even more to defeat the warlords of Canaan and Syria, who have vowed to destroy the woman who dares rule over men. And what better revenge than to burn alive Hatshepsut's own daughter as a sacrifice to their savage gods? Hatshepsut must find a way to smash Egypts brutal enemies without becoming a monster herself. The men who adore Hatshepsut struggle to outdo one another for her love, but their jealousy and hatred escalate to murderous intensity.
Heartbreaking tragedies challenge the female Pharaohs fidelity, faith and even her sanity. Egypt reaches unprecedented power and wealth as she conquers everything but her own heart.
