It was a little bit hard to start, but fully captivating later on!
Perfect way to get more knowledge of ancient history (570-575 BC). By the eyes of Egyptian princess it tells about Darius the Great, how he became a king of Persia. I found a lot of interesting fact of previous dynasty of Cyrus and Cambyses.

I read a few books of Ebers, but this one is definitely my favorite.
I think you will enjoy this book if you you l
