Bellino ma mi aspettavo decisamente di più.
Come al solito il mega cattivone di turno crede di essere onnipotente e alla fine perde tutto.
Interessanti i riti e la religiosità dell'antico Egitto, così come la trama.
Purtroppo i cattivi, sopravvivono indisturbati per 4 volumi e negli ultimi capitoli di questo libro vengono liquidati in pochissime righe.
Per non parlare dello scontro finale che si conclude in un misero capitoletto, con il pazzo fanatico incenerito dopo un breve "duello" magico.

I read the whole series and loved it. CJ is very descriptive in his writing and an expert on Egyptian history and culture. However I felt he could have elaborated or extended himself a bit more on certain parts of the book. He builds on the suspense and when suddenly you reach a really expected part, for example... a great battle, where the outcome of the characters lives are of extreme importance, he'll spend about a page and a half on that battle... beginning to end and you are left thinking.. ...more
RATING: 3.5 stars.

Another typical Jacq with his very moral and heroic characters opposing their very immoral and evil enemies. Still loving his deciption of ancient Egypt, though.

The final of this book was a bit rushed but I liked it overall, as always even if the author recycles a lot of the ideas and plots of his older books, not to mention characters.

Les quatre tomes étaient vraiment bien. On suit l'histoire d'Iker, du pharaon Sésostris et de leur combat contre l'Annonciateur, serviteur de Seth. Le lecteur est plongé dans la mythologie égyptienne, Christian Jacq en donne tous les détails grâce aux textes retrouvés.

The Judge of Egypt is still my favorite series, but the implications of the ending of this series are staggering. I would love to meet Mr. Jacq and ask him so many questions!!!
