Carole Wilkinson wrote an amazing book about slavery, betrayal and treachery. Ramose: Prince in Exile is exciting and suspenseful as the reader journeys with Ramose through a sudden change in his life that turns everything upside down. Disguised as a apprentice scribe, Prince Ramose learns the importance of friendship and love, while he tries to prove guilty the ones who betrayed him and his father.
This is the first book in a series of four, though I wish they were joined together. All the terri

There are some authors who can create an effortless historical atmosphere - Georgette Heyer jumps to mind - but Wilkinson unfortunately doesn't seem to be one of them. The tidbits about Egyptian life are interesting but feel a bit contrived. Wilkinson may be an ambassador of the Victorian Premier's Reading Challenge but this book does not stand out.

I read this series when I was a young lass (13-14 yrs old). I was somewhat obsessed with ancient Egyptian history, so I found this book greatly interesting. I don't think I'll read the series again now that I'm 21. I don't want to ruin good childhood memories, haha.

I did not enjoy this book that much but some parts of the story were good. Its about a young prince that has to hide in another town because some people in the palace want him dead.
