But it's not really needed. Above all else, with The Horus Road, Gedge's Lord of the Two Lands trilogy becomes the sweeping epic I felt it would be in The Hippopotamus Marsh.

Pauline Gedge has been always amazing story teller. Very impressed with Pauline Gedge's vision of this troubled period in Egypt's history

Pauline Gedge has been always amazing story teller. Her "Horus Road" is another chapter to never forgotten history of Egyptian kings fighting foreign invaders - Hyksos, known in a book as Setiu. Horus Road" is the third and the final book in this epoch describing struggle of ancient Tao house to establish the glory of independent Egypt and their anointed Pharaohs. Very impressed with Pauline Gedge's vision of this troubled period in Egypt's history. Both characterization and scene setting are sensitive and, I believe, very authentic.

Pauline Gedge (born December 11, 1945) is a Canadian novelist best known for her historical fiction novels, including the best-selling Child of the Morning, The . The Horus Road: Lords of the Two Lands, Volume Three (2000). The King's Man trilogy: The Twice Born (2007).

Pauline Gedge (born December 11, 1945) is a Canadian novelist best known for her historical fiction novels, including the best-selling Child of the Morning, The Eagle and the Raven, her fantasy novel Stargate, and her Egyptian trilogies, Lords of the Two Lands and The King’s Man. She also writes science fiction, fantasy and horror.

The Horus Road is the riveting conclusion of Pauline Gedge's three-volume epic, the Lords of the Two Lands, which chronicles the courageous and often tragic struggle of the Tao Princes to free their country from the foreign rule of the Setiu king Apepa. Ahmose vows to continue the struggle that has taken the life of his father and brother.

Gedge’s Lords of the Two Lands trilogy sweeps to completion in this final volume. Her prose is spare and graceful and she can make the menu of a royal meal as compelling as an epic battle scene. Pauline’s notes on the Lords trilogy.

From Publishers Weekly: Chronicling the struggle between Egypt's native kings and the foreign Setiu rulers during the 12th dynasty, Gedge's Lords of the Two Lands trilogy sweeps to completion in this hefty final volume (following The Hippopotamus March and The Oasis).

Vol. III of Lords of the Two Lands. Like its predecessors, it’s essentially a tale of warlords: The tyrannical Pharaoh Apepa, whose Hyksos dynasty has occupied Egypt for 200 years, faces a mutiny of the Egyptian armies led by Ahmose, the youngest son of the fallen hero Prince Seqenenra Tao.

Gedge, Pauline, 1945– The Horus road, Pauline Gedge. Lords of the two lands ; v. 3). Originally publ. 1. DURING THE REMAINING DAYS of mourning for Kamose, Aahmes-nefertari saw little of her husband. Toronto : Viking, 2000. Includes bibliographical references. ISBN 978-0-14-316747-1. Ahmose I, King of Egypt-Fiction. 2. Egypt-History-To 332 . She had expected the solemnity of grief to finally descend on the household now that the rebellion had been put down, and it was true that peace of a kind embraced the family, but it was more a silent sigh of relief than a quiet tribute to her brother.

In this, the last book of the trilogy, the youngest son of Seqenenra Tao assumes command of the native armies rebelling against the Pharaoh Apepa, whose alien dynasty has ruled Egypt for two hundred years. When his dedicated but ascetic older brother, Kamose, was assassinated by his own allies, Ahmose was seriously wounded. The women of the family must hold the native forces together until Ahmose can recover and develop a strategy that will bring about the downfall of the "rulers of the uplands," whom we know today as the Hyksos.

Realistic
The house of Tao has long waited for the god Amun to end his demands of personal loss and sacrifice for the return of the rule of Ma'at (rightful law & justice by the true Egyptian Pharoah of royal blood)to Egypt. After living through his father Seqenenra's slaughter, his brother Si-Amun's suicide, his brother Kamose's murder and his sister Tani's marraige to a traitor, Ahmose Tao may finally see the unification of Upper and Lower of Egypt and feel the weight of the Double Crown of the Pharoah rest upon his brow.
Still, there remain so many obstacles to overcome if peace and prosperity are to reign. The Setiu usurper, Apepa, once Pharoah of the whole land, still lives and controls the northern capital of Het-Uart. The trade routes along the Horus Road, necessary for Egypt to thrive, remain out of Ahmose Tao's control. Furthermore, there is the business of the government itself. As Ahmose will learn, it is one thing to build, motivate and lead an army during a time of war, but quite another to create a government to rule a country that has been devastated by the scars of battles. Ahmes-Nefertari, Ahmose's wife, grows skilled in the arts of politics and diplomacy but will her ability to rule, the joy she takes with her accomplishments and her new found independence tear her marriage apart? Can Ahmose and Ahmes-Nefertari hold Egypt and their family togther?
The Horus Road is the conclusion to the Gedge's trilogy which depicts the events that usher in the great 18th Dynsaty. It is fitting for Gedge to have focused such attention on Ahmes-Nefertari as well as Tetisheri and Aahotep (her grandmother and mother, respectively) in this final volume as these three women are the ancestors of the only woman to rule as Pharaoh, Hatshepsut (Gedge's Child of the Morning is an incredible book if you would like to learn more about this amazing woman!). As always, the attention to detail is precise and the amount of research done by the author shines through each sentence. Egypt comes alive once again in a Pauline Gedge novel and I have had the pleasure of visiting, if only for a little while...

Pauline Gedge has been always amazing story teller. Her "Horus Road" is another chapter to never forgotten history of Egyptian kings fighting foreign invaders - Hyksos, known in a book as Setiu. "Horus Road" is the third and the final book in this epoch describing struggle of ancient Tao house to establish the glory of independent Egypt and their anointed Pharaohs. Ms. Gedge did a fantastic job describing in detail the time around campaign against the Setiu, relationship of the members of the royal house, the psychology of young pharaohs, coming of age and fighting not only external enemy, but its own demons, weaknesses and doubts.
The third book describes the actions of the youngest son of the Tao house, Ahmose, who survived the assassination, and is ready to finish grandiose work started by his uncompromising brother Kamose, killed by treacherous princes. Ahmose is set to succeed and expel foreigners from Egypt, but before he will be able to finally beat his grave enemy, he must deal not only with political aspects of emerging Egypt, but also with social issues and family relations. Ms. Gedge did a splendid job recreating ancient Egypt. Her research skills are impeccable, but her story is a bit heavy at times in this part, and a reader needs to go through plenty of unnecessary reading in order to find some action, bountiful descriptions, or insightful conversation. I still highly recommend this book and the entire series to ancient history lovers, but I think some readers will be put off, and will never finish this monumental work.

Pauline Gedge is an excellent and imaginative writer and a great storyteller. I read the trilogy in a week, and this book in two sittings. I was captivated by the fast-moving story. What a fabulous reading experience.
I am usually totally lost when any author tries to describe multi-focal battle scenes, but I found her descriptions easy to envision. I thank Ms. Gedge for including a map, creating a cast of memorable characters, and illustrating many aspects of everyday life in "royal" Egypt. Her descriptive talents allow one to visualize meals, dress, the struggles of daily life, human frailties, and even complex religious customs and rituals.
It's ending was a little anticlimactic...perhaps a sequel? Ahmose's second son, Amunhotep, becomes the next pharaoh. It made me wonder what happened to his first stepson, or even if he was an historical figure.
I'm definitely adding Ahmose to my Historical Hunks and Heroes list. I am pleased to add this trilogy to my library.

I bought the first book in the trilogy to try thinking I could wait and buy the others if I liked it, what a mistake then I had to wait find out how the story would end. I knew the general history, (the Egyptians win) but I didn't know any of the details. I'm not a good judge of the accuracy of the history but it was a great read.

The culmination of the epic struggle to liberate Egypt from the rule of the Hyksos, I'm currently reading this book and have found that one becomes caught up in the trials, battles. lives, love and losses of the family who have fought to try to regain the Double Crown of Egypt which was rightfully theirs.

Pauline Gedge has a way of writing that keeps you wanting to read more and more.
