    Well I find myself in a quandary again – because the writing in this series is so consistently good, I have nothing new to say when I come to review the sequels. I’d either be reiterating the exact same praise, or telling you to go and read my review of the previous novel instead. But as quandaries go, this is probably the book lover’s best one to be in. No one wants to read a series that starts out strong, dangles the promise of having found a great author you can read for years to come… and then fizzles out at the end. In fact, I have bad memories of several such series that started well and ended badly. Fortunately, Pauline Gedge has a consistent level of quality that has put her on my auto-buy list over the years. That’s pretty high praise from me considering I have only two other authors on that list. I trust Gedge to always deliver me an amazing reading experience, and I’ve never been let down.There’s plenty of engrossing military challenge and action to get into here, and it being the last book in the trilogy you might assume that our protagonists are in the ascendant here. Well… sort of. Whilst I do love the absorbing military campaigns that this trilogy follows, for me the most memorable plot points in this book are the bittersweet moments. Those are the ones that really gut you when reading them, provoking anger and sadness. I know not everyone is a fan of that sort of thing – some people will even swear off a book if it breaks their heart (A Song of Ice and Fire is brought to mind); but it’s precisely these moments that make a book. If everything was always fine and dandy, would you really be worried for the protagonists? Real risk compels us to emotionally invest on a deeper level, and yeah, the tragic moments hurt, but they’re also a symptom that the book is doing its job well. I’d take that over a bland read with forgettable characters any day. For me that most affecting plot twist is (view spoiler)[Tani’s betrayal. Somehow, despite all the terrible death that afflicts the family (including Kamose’s which I was really wrought by), it’s Tani’s betrayal that twists the knife in the hardest. It’s a tough reminder that sometimes people grow and change in unexpected ways, and end up doing things that in the eyes of one are abhorrent, but in the eyes of another are totally justified. (hide spoiler)]I don’t have any quotes this time, mainly because I whizzed through the book so fast I didn’t have time to collect and post any, but Gedge’s wonderfully vivid descriptions are as fresh and transporting as ever. Her characters are nuanced and very human; in fact, their humanity pretty much makes the central plot of this book, and you’re left with a strange sense of a distant, astounding culture that you nevertheless comprehend the motivations of perfectly. Once you understand the social mores that they’re operating in, it’s easy to empathise with historical people, and Gedge is a master at balancing this correctly – bringing to life that exotic time and place, and yet connecting you to the characters. Believe or not more historical authors than I care for have trouble with this, usually succeeding in one point but failing on the other (creating a fascinating setting but distant characters, or identifiable characters but with a 21st century voice and really anachronistic setting).There’s not much more I can say that I haven’t already said in reviews of the first and second book in the trilogy, so I’ll simply close by saying I highly recommend Pauline Gedge.10 out of 10

    Bullet Review:What do I write at the end of this fantastic trilogy? This was pure enjoyment, from page 1 of “The Hippopotamus Marsh” to page 562 of “The Horus Road”.Now that it’s done, I’m kinda sad to leave behind all these characters and not be a part of their world anymore.Full Review:I won't go into much of a plot synopsis as that would easily blow most of the spoilers from "The Oasis", but this is the conclusion of the conflict between Seqenenra, the rightful ruler of Egypt, and Apepa, the Setiu usurper, started all the way back in "The Hippopotamus Marsh".As I turned the last page, read the last word and found out what happened to my characters, the only thing that was in my mind was how bittersweet the whole ending was. It reminds me of the classic Star Wars trilogy of my youth - "A New Hope" was the inciting incident, the introduction of our characters; "Empire Strikes Back" saw our character endure many hardships and setbacks and "Return of the Jedi" saw evil defeated, but also the end (at the time) of the adventures of our friends and companions. In the same manner, "The Horus Road" is sad to me - I'm not going to be a part of Ahmose or Ramose or Aahmes-Nefertari or Tetisheri or Aahotep or any of the amazing characters that I've grown to love over this brilliant trilogy.This trilogy means a lot to me; I read this alongside my dear friend, Iset, who gave me the books some years ago. But more than that, these books have been the only 5-star rated fiction books I've read in some 3 years. I've spent many years agonizing over whether I even love to read anymore, if maybe reading has just passed me by, that I'm too cynical, too pessimistic, not imaginative enough to enjoy being transported away to another world. (Alternatively, maybe all the books being written these days were crap...)This trilogy made me fall in love with reading again. I'm stunned that I've read nearly 1800 pages of these books, as this is the one case where I look back at the pages I've finished and instead of going, "What HAPPENED in all those pages?" I went, "OMG, I read THAT much?! That much happened?!""Lords of the Two Lands" is a beautiful trilogy, a real stellar example of how to do a trilogy well. I cannot heap enough compliments upon it - the characters are intricate and real, the setting is so vibrant and vivid, I feel as if I am living in Egypt, the story is complex, the writing is beautiful and elegant, yet not so heaped in purple prose as to obstruct the reading experience.I am so glad to end this year on this trilogy. 2017 was a tumultuous year in many ways, but in my personal life and in my reading life, it was pretty damned stellar.

    In the final installment to Gedge’s Lords of the Two Lands trilogy, the story of the Tao’s family attempt to reclaim Egypt from the Setiu invaders reaches a thrilling and riveting climax. I can’t say it’s the best book of the trilogy (deciding that would be something of a Sophie’s Choice), but I can say it’s a wonderfully written, compulsively readable finale.Ahmose Tao, Prince of Weset and self-proclaimed pharaoh now that both his father, Seqenenra, and brother, Kamose, have both died at the hands of those who claimed to be loyal yet ultimately betrayed them, has successfully reclaimed the entire land of Egypt. The last bastion of Setiu rule is their capital city, Het-Uart, a thickly walled repository of Setiu troops and scared citizens. Those impassable walls also held Ahmose’s sister, Tani, Apepa’s hostage these many years, as well as the physical symbols of Egypt’s divinity, the Horus throne, the double crown, the Crook of Mercy and the Flail of Justice. During the long months away from Weset, while Ahmose continues to lay siege to Het-Uart and finish the reclamation of his beloved country, a new center of Egyptian administration is taking shape under the capable hands of Ahmose’s wife Aahmes-nefertari and his mother Aahotep in Weset, both of whom effectively keep Egypt running by organizing and supervising the many small details required to keep a country working. Yet there’s a distance between Ahmose and Aahmes-nefertari which has nothing to do with their physical separation and as Het-Uart finally falls and a final betrayal to Ahmose’s reign comes to light, engineered by Apepa and orchestrated by Tani, Ahmose must decide if seeking reparation for such a awesome treachery is worth the price: the loss of his marriage and love of Aahmes-nefertariAs with the other books, the battle scenes are the poorest part of the novel, suffering from a lack of dynamism as the writing itself remains adroit. The only exception were the scenes describing the sieging of Het-Uart and, later, the Rethennu fortress of Sharuhen, which, perhaps because they were so much more intimate than the other large battle scenes, seemed to have a greater sense of urgency and were infused with a more authentic sense of the chaos which would surround such close-quarters fighting. Where Gedge really shines is in the complex interplay of her characters and their very human reactions and emotions. We see the fragility of Aahmes-nefertari as she tries bring together a nation in her husband’s absence while dealing with the trauma of childbirth and infant mortality; the desperation of Ramose as he attempts to rescue Tani, his idealized love; the cutting-to-the-quick of both Ramose and Ahmose as Tani reveals how she’s changed from the free-spirited girl they both knew years ago. Towards the end of the novel, these full-developed relationships intertwine to create a heartbreaking resolution of the story. That's said, Tani’s story is the most engrossing and the one which is the most vexatious. (view spoiler)[When we finally meet her after being closeted away by Apepa’s side for so many years, we see that she’s no longer Egyptian, but has adopted Setiu manners, to the point of even changing her name to Tautha. Her excuse? She was so long with Apepa, frightened and alone, missing her family, sure that Apepa would execute her for her family’s actions, but instead Apepa treated her with kindness and consideration. Soon she fell in love with him and consented to marry him. So that when Het-Uart finally falls and Egypt is free, she refuses to go home with Ahmose, instead holding fast to her marriage vows and claiming that her duty lies with her husband, Apepa and choosing the people of her husband over her own family. This sort of betrayal and cowardly behavior is so upsetting and abhorrent, it made me agree with Ahmose when he tells her “My only regret is that Ramose did no strangle you when he saw what you had become.” I mean, she even demanded an Egyptian burial for Apepa, using her status as a princess of royal blood to blackmail Ahmose into complying.(hide spoiler)]My horror at Tani’s behavior equaled that of Ahmose’s.In the end, The Horus Road is a rousing, nail-biting, undeniably satisfactory ending to a trilogy of books which comprise just about some of the best ancient Egyptian historical fiction out there.

    Ahmose succeeds in defeating the Hyksos king Apeppa. Ahmose was one of the most outstanding kings in the history of ancient Egypt.His son Ahmenhotep is born Hyksos were a foreign people who conquered Egypt about 1640 B.C. and ruled for about 100 years, until they were driven out by Thutmose I. The Hyksos let the Egyptians continue with many of their customs but left behind some important technological advances, including the chariot and the scimitar. Ahmose was amrried to his sister Nefertiri.Ahmose(1570-1546 BC) is considered the founder of the 18th dynasty, although strictly speaking it is not a new dynasty, because he ended the work begun by his grandparents, parents and brother (Kamose), reconquering Upper Egypt and expelling the Hyksos invaders who had run the country for over 100 years. He was famed and much appreciated by the Egyptian people for his military exploits. A lot is known about them, thanks to one of his faithful soldiers, Ahmose son of Ibana. This Ahmose son of Ibana wrote an autobiography of his own exploits, following the king, which remained in his tomb. Ahmose' autobiography is full of tales. Having been properly brought up by his powerful grandmother and mother, Ahmose married his very own sister Ahmose Nefertiri, and made her a queen even more important than they had been. This last title was hereditary and used by all succeeding queens till Hatshepsut, who gave it to her daughter Neferure when she became "king". The title fell into disuse during the solo reign of Thutmose III. Following the death of Ahmose, Nefertiri took on the role of regent for her young son Amenhotep I. Amenhotep I (sometimes read as Amenophis I and meaning "Amun is satisfied") was the second Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty of Egypt. His reign is generally dated from 1526 to 1506 BC. He was born to Ahmose I and Ahmose-Nefertari, but had at least two elder brothers, Ahmose-ankh and Ahmose Sapair, and was not expected to inherit the throne. However, sometime in the eight years between Ahmose I's 17th regnal year and his death, his heir apparent died and Amenhotep became crown prince. He then acceded to the throne and ruled for about 21 years.After Amenhotep died, wherever his tomb was located, his body did not remain there. Amenhotep I's body was found in the Deir el-Bahri Cache above the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut and is now in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. His mummy had apparently not been looted by the 21st dynasty, and the priests who moved the mummy took care to keep the Cartonnage intact. Because of that exquisite face mask, Amenhotep's is the only royal mummy which has not been unwrapped and examined by modern EgyptologistsDuring the new kingdom (1567-1085)the capital of Egypt was Wesset which means "mace"to express the extreme authority of this city ,then the name was changed to "Thebes" and Homer described it as " City of the Hundred Gates".The Arabs called it "Luxor" means" The city of Palaces"because they were impressed by its magnificent edifices and huge buildings

    I've done little but sit and read The Horus Road since finishing my review of The Oasis earlier today. I can and do read lengthy books incredibly quickly. Gedge's books are a rare thing – I find them incredibly readable, but with enough depth there to keep me interested and invested in the plot, but more importantly, the characters. I don't really know what else to say about The Horus Road. The strengths of the first two books continue here. The characterisations are still detailed and the stakes are still high. I liked the arc that Ahmose and Aahmes-Nefertari's relationship went through. I liked seeing Ahmose's struggle to be king, not just military commander. I loved that the ghosts of Seqenenra and Kamose still hovered over the story from beginning to end.I wouldn't have missed an afterward that explained the significance of the struggle of the Setiu/Hyksos on Egyptian history, and the fate of the characters. But it's not really needed. Above all else, with The Horus Road, Gedge's Lord of the Two Lands trilogy becomes the sweeping epic I felt it would be in The Hippopotamus Marsh.

    This review is for the whole trilogy:This fine set of historical novels covers the reclamation of Egypt from the Hyskos in the 1500s BCE, culminating in the establishment of the 18th dynasty by Ahmose I. I picked up these books because I didn't know much at all about ancient Egypt beyond the standard stuff I learned in high school. The trilogy proved to be extremely interesting. Gedge does a beautiful job of bringing ancient Egypt to life and creating extremely real and sympathetic characters from such remote historical figures. I especially enjoyed her warm portrayal of family life. Gedge also deftly explores the effects of a brutal war, constant danger of betrayal, and prolonged struggle on her characters and their relationships.

    The final installment of the series, and I couldn't put it down. Parts get a little slow, but they are necessary for the development of the story. I will definitely look for more Pauline Gedge after finishing these three.

    (view spoiler)[I loved The Hippopotamus Marsh and The Oasis. I couldn't put them down while I was reading them, so naturally I expected to love The Horus Road as well. Instead, I am extremely disappointed and could not bring myself to finish the book (finished at ~80%). I was close to giving the book 2 stars but I will still give it 3 stars simply because I adore Gedge's writing style--she really brings Ancient Egypt to life.Overall, this book has a kind of meandering quality to it as the battle which almost completely secures Ahmose's victory is his battle against Pezedkhu's army... which occurs in the middle of the book* . This means that a large part of the book was devoted to Ahmose's life at Weset. My main beef with this book, as you will see, can be summarized into one word: Aahmes-Nefertari.On the one hand, I really love the significant part she plays as Ahmose's right-hand. She is effectively the ruler of Weset from the governmental side, while Ahmose takes care of the war aspect. Since this book is largely about Ahmose's siege of Het-Uart (his strategy is stopping resources from reaching Het-Uart and trapping the Setiu inside until they surrender for want of water, food, etc.), and as laying the siege mostly consists of the Egyptian army sitting outside the city walls--something they can't do during the flood season--significant portions of the book are spent at Weset.Marital problems abound between Aahmes-Nefertari and Ahmose. The main problem is that, firstly, Aahmes-Nefertari desires to have her administrative work acknowledged by Ahmose, who wrangles with his pride since he is not comfortable presiding over meetings where Aahmes-Nefertari knows it all while Ahmose tries to give some semblance of being the actual king. Secondly, Aahmes-Nefertari feels as though Ahmose no longer feels passion for her as he used to. Whereas before, when Kamose still lived, the two of them worked in perfect harmony, with the imbalance of power on the home front, their unity has been shaken. I'm not sure if there was a problem with the execution of the problems between these two, however, since a large part of Ahmose's problem was also that he preferred being with his soldiers over being with his wife... HOWEVER, I don't feel like Ahmose did anything overtly wrong in his dealings with Aahmes-Nefertari, and I almost feel as though she is too emotional to rule as a queen. I'm not saying the king and a queen must necessarily have a rather cold, business-like relationship, and the extent of Aahmes-Nefertari's adoration for Ahmose is not a problem either since Ahmose is just as a crazy about her. However, I feel like Aahmes-Nefertari is too sensitive and lets her imagined negativities rule her. When Ahmose says "I owe my first night at Weset to my wife", Aahmes-Nefertari continues to grudge him for his use of the word "owe"... like, girl, that's NOT what he meant. It's just a way of expressing that he treasures you so much he can't give precedence to other things. When he finally retires for the night due to a headache, I was appalled at Aahmes-Nefertari's lack of self-control.My mind was also boggled when Aahmes-Nefertari insisted that Ahmose stay for the birth of Sat-Kamose when the flood season was almost over and Ahmose had to go back to Het-Uart. I understand that she is still shaken by the death of Hent-ta-Hent and Si-Amun II, making her afraid that all of her children save Ahmose-Onkh would be weak and that Ahmose may hate her because of that. But I think she has to understand that they are fighting a war. Perhaps hormones also played a part in her rising hysteria, who knows? But whenever the story shifted to Weset, I desperately wished to return to the sitting-around at Het-Uart, where at least Abana, Hor-Aha, etc., got things done. It was also a relief to go to Pi-Hathor and Esna--I needed a one-chapter break from the Soap Opera of Weset. While reading, I felt as though Aahmes-Nefertari was always on the verge of poisoning any kind of interaction between herself and Ahmose, so there were large sections of the book where I just felt like skipping over to the chapters where Ahmose left Weset again.*I'm having trouble organizing my thoughts but I just wanted to make a small note: I was pretty appalled too when Ahmose is face-to-face with Pezedkhu, who is about to shoot him, and Ahmose just stands there gaping at him. To be honest, I feel like it would have been more realistic for at least Ahmose's right-hand men to lose some confidence him then. YOU JUST STOOD THERE, AHMOSE. You could have at least looked panicked but defiant in the face of death but instead... you just stood there.Both The Hippopotamus Marsh and The Oasis were filled with discussions of strategy and battle. The Horus Road initially had some discussions concerning these, but once Ahmose turned back from Rethennu, the story was pretty much over for me. I skimmed over the final few pages and was glad that the Horus Throne and Royal Regalia were retrieved, which is enough for me. I was looking into the "true history" behind the events of the novel and when I found out that the real Ahmose did indeed go on to have other wives, I became incredulous at Ahmose and Aahmes-Nefertari's "you are the only one for me attitude". Despite the amount of love sibling-spouses could hold for another, it would be perfectly normal for Ahmose to take on more wives and secure Aahmes-Nefertari as the Great Royal Wife and His Beloved while having an almost indifferent attitude to his other wives. SIGH.I haven't really read anyone being unsatisified the way I was, so I would say go ahead and finish the series for those of you who haven't read The Horus Road but read this review anyway.

    OMG, the best ending for this trilogy. I have felt that the author did justice on the life of Kamose and Ahmose, but I know she dedicated the trilogy to Kamose.However, I would really like that Tani was punished more severely or that she realized how stupid she was, and felt the weight of her shame, but it was not meant to be. She held steadfastly to her blind love to Apepa (Apepi).Lastly, where is the promised honor for Hor-Aha? It wasn't in the epilogue, he deserves it, because he worked hard for it.Overall, I like this book, even if there were stuff that were left hanging.

    Okay, we all know that Ahmose ends up liberating Egypt from the Hyksos. The appealing part of The Horus Road is the journey to victory, not so much the victory itself. Will Ahmose be able to continue on and finish what Seqenenra and Kamose died for? Of course he will, but nothing will ever be the same again in the Tao family.Ahmose is a three dimensional character, but after reading The Oasis, which is in Kamose’s perspective, he seems pale in comparison to his brother. Yet, throughout the novel, Ahmose steps into the large footprints left by his father and brother and eventually outshines both of them. Ahmose is a great character, but Pauline Gedge has not neglected secondary characters like the resourceful Ahmose-Nefertari or the tragic Ramose. She only gives us hints at the great woman Ahmose-Nefertari would become, but it is enough to make her steal every scene that she’s in.Since the end of the war is drawing near, the plot moves along at a fantastic pace that makes you never want to put this book down. Cities burn, kings run from danger and betrayal happens on both sides…what more could you ask for in the conclusion to this stunning trilogy? The ending is not a perfectly happy one, but it is satisfying and the characters stay true to themselves.I give this book 4/5 stars.

    A difficult book to assess. In terms of the overall plot - the struggle by a noble Egyptian family to evict the Setiu from their country - it's anti-climactic. The decisive struggles were won by the lords of Weset in the previous book. So Ahmose is doing little more besides marking time as he besieges Apepa in his last stronghold. In some senses, this novel is a very long long denouement. ***SPOILERS***So the drama is built around the royal family of Weset and how their lives have been shaped by the conflict. Ahmose is alienated from his grandmother. Ahmose and Aahmes-Nefertari's become estranged over his frequent absences from home life, though eventually they reconcile. And the family is shocked when they learn Tani is in love with and loyal to Apepa. I suppose the interpersonal drama of the family has been the heart of the story all along. But it's difficult to maintain tension in that story when the external struggle is more or less resolved.Gedge remains masterful in her prose, in her characterizations, and in her depiction of the habits, the beliefs, and the physical beauty of ancient Egypt. The dramatic arc of the series was unsatisfying, but it's never less than a pleasure to be transported to Gedge's world.

    I've just finished this trilogy- it came to a satisfying conclusion. Aside from King Tut and Queen Cleopatra, I really don't know much about Egyptian history. I do know the author, Pauline Gedge, is a celebrated and meticulous historical writer so I have little doubt that her re-telling of Kamose, Ahmose et. al is as close to reality as possible. Fans of George R. R. Martin know that no one character is safe and in this Lords of Egypt trilogy this too is the case. It follows an Egyptian royal family whose divine lineage was usurped by a foreigner who slowly and subtlety unseated them and became King of Egypt. This is the telling how a family, through sacrifice and belief in their gods overcame the foreign obstacle and returned power to the Egyptians. There was much military intrigue and heart break in these tomes. A great read for historical buffs.

    *Spoilers*Final in the Lords of the Three Lands trilogy, and I'm glad it's finally come to an end. The last of the Taos, Ahmose, finally unifies Egypt and drives out the Hykos usurper Apepi. Unfortunately he lost his sister in the process, she had become the wife of Apepi and fallen in love with him.The fall of the usurper is just that. A fall. Apepi falls, breaks his leg, the wound goes septic, and he dies. The end. A little bit of an ignoble end for a man who was such a power figure in the trilogy.But all in all I think it ended well. Not a series I would read again anytime soon, too dry for me, but otherwise good.

    The Horus Road by Pauline Gedge was a joy to read. Gedge knows the exact recipe for historical fact and imaginative embellishment and creativity. The third of her Lords of the Two Lands Trilogy, this volume tells the story of second son, Ahmose, the third of the family to pick up the torch to secure Egypt's freedom from the Setui usurpers. A great story full of human drama, thrilling war situations and heart-wrenching tender moments, this is a great one. Yea for Gedge.

    This is a long book. And ultimately a DNF for me. It was well written and historically accurate, but I just wasn't in the mood for a saga. In all fairness to the author, though, I did not read the first two books in the trilogy. I hadn't realized that this was the last one, although that didn't prevent me from understanding what was going on.

    I really enjoyed this trilogy and learning about Egypt.
