War of the Crowns

This was an enjoyable book, alongside its companions within the trilogy. Lots of historical colour and excitement.

The only minus was the translation and/or proof reading. There were times when the sense of a sentence was unclear, and there were obvious errors. Having read Christian Jacq's `Ramses' books (which are well written and translated), I would certainly not put him at fault.

However, this is a diverting book, as well as being a glimpse into the amazing life of a little known female (outside of Egyptology)who beside her Pharoah husband, and later her sons, helped free Egypt from tyranny.
