A unique and successful blend of fact and imagination, this is another excellent book in what I hope is an endless series about ancient Egpyt and its royal households. The era comes alive in a way I haven't experienced since Wilbur Smith's River God. The author knows her Egyptology, which gives her settings an authentic feel, even though the books are novels. This one is a story of the pull between harsh duty and the importance of history and is all the more poignant because of the author's pass ...more

Book four in the series continues with more of Pahwah's machinations to seize the throne and become Pharaoh.

This latest installment should appeal to readers of historical fiction. The author brings ancient Egypt to life with vivid detail and drama. She clearly loves her subject matter and has done her research well.

On one level this is an exciting tale of plots and murder. But behind the intrigue there is a compelling human story of pride, greed, lust and loneliness.

Does Pahwah finally triumph o

Ms. Merewether is one of those authors where you read a sentence or a paragraph that touches your soul and you sigh. I have enjoyed this series tremendously and I'm a bit sad this is the final book. The character development is outstanding. The story is compelling. All-in-all it is a great read. If you love history and historical fiction, this book is for you. I highly recommend it. ...more

Yet another solid installment in this fabulous historical fiction series. Just like the previous books in the series, this novel is well written and meticulously researched. It’s clear that the author really knows her stuff when it comes to ancient Egyptian history, yet she also succeeds in telling a gripping story filled with interesting characters. I had a hard time putting this book down!

For those interested in Ancient Egypt or those looking to read something filled with love, hate, murder and conspiracies, this book is for you. The New Kingdom, the 18th Dynasty, of which this series deals spans from 1550 to 1293 BC. During this time Pharaoh Akhenaten, born Amenhotep IV, ruled with his wife Queen Nerfertiti.

Akhenaten, the heretic Pharaoh, and his wife instituted a religious revolution. Instead of following long established practices Akhenaten decided that the only gods the Egypt

Another masterpiece

Ms. Merewether has done it again. Such wonderful stories backed with solid research. I could only imagine how long it took her to weave this beautiful series.

Again, this author never ceases to amaze me with her very creative writing skills. I feel as if I am living during that time period. It is very hard for me to imagine that a man can be so evil as Pawah, even during that time. But, it all ties in eventually.
I am a historian that loves Egyptian history and if you share this interest, you would enjoy this last book of the four-volume set of the Chronicles.

This is the last book of four book in “The Lost Pharaoh Chronicles” series authored by Lauren Lee Merewether. In this series she talks about a period in New Kingdom of Pharaonic Egypt where Dynasty 18 rulers - Amenhotep-III, Akhenaten, Smenkhare, Nefertiti, Tutankhamen, Ay, Horemheb ruled the unified Egypt. This is somewhere about BC 1390 – 1295. Once Horemheb became Pharaoh he decided to erase from Egyptian history the records of Akhenaten to Aye to banish the cult of Atenism, so a lot of detai ...more

Wow! They just keep getting better! Revenge. Rebirth. Recanting historical records... So great! These stories are fascinating--and a bit chilling that so much of this is based on actual historical data, that many of these things actually happened? It's kind of surreal. I'm impressed by the amount of research that must have gone into recreating this series of events--and I have a new respect for ancient Egyptians and Egyptology. A great series. ...more

A satisfying, authentic and emotional conclusion to an amazing series

Wow! Mereweather has crafted an emotional conclusion to the finale of The Lost Pharaoh Chronicles. Rather than gloss over the ending that we knew was near, she enriched and deepened the story with an emotional account of not only the main character, Horemheb, but also his wife, Mut, as well as all the other key characters that have played a part throughout the story. The ending felt real and authentic and was given the justice

Terrible. Just dreary and unhappy dialogue and memories from miserable people who were supposedly duped and tortured for decades by a homicidal psychopath. The villain in these books was a stereotype of Jafar from Disney’s “Aladdin,” and while we all know people like this exist, (ahem, it IS 2020) I was unable to suspend my disbelieve long enough to think Pawah wouldn’t have been dispatched immediately the very first time he seemed a threat to the royal house of Egypt.

Read the first in the series with interest, the second was a drag, the third, I flicked through as it was boring and repetitive and this, I couldn’t read after flicking through a bit. Just awful.
