Thank you to Random Things Tours and Matador Books for inviting me to take part in the blog tour for The Awakening Aten and providing me with a copy for review.

The Awakening Aten is a sweeping saga set in Ancient Egypt following two families through multiple generations. One royal and one common, this epic covers themes of religion, politics, war and tomb building among many others.

I loved the setting of The Awakening Aten the most. I have not read many, if any, books set in this time period and there was a lot of detail about the customs and way of life. The description of the tombs and burial rituals were very interesting. I personally did find it drags a little in places, but I am sure a fan of character driven novels and sweeping family epics would enjoy the pacing of it more.

It is obvious how much the author knows and loves the time period and it was a very informative and interesting read.
