In the year 1355 BCE, the land of Egypt was the superpower of the known world. King Tut’s father, Akhenaten, the so-called ‘heretic pharaoh,’ and his wife, Queen Nefertiti, is on the verge of catapulting Egypt into a revolution that will forever divide its people and rip the most powerful empire on the earth from its foundation.
Inspired by the actual Hittite and Amarna letters of 14th century BCE, ‘Valley of the Kings: The 18th Dynasty’ is an epic novel of intrigue, passion, and betrayal, resurrecting the thrilling story of a singular leader whose beliefs were both visionary and disastrous.
Valley of the Kings: The 18th Dynasty is a debut novel of Coffey. Coffey writes about the lives and events during the 18th dynasty of Egypt.
I love the cover of this book, it speaks to you and brings forth the colors of Egypt.
The land of Egypt always has been the most loved place for historians, for it brings some of the worlds intriguing stories.
The story is about the royals of Egypt and discusses the period of Amenhotep. Amenhotep has two sons Tuthmosis and Teppy. Teppy is deformed and is shy whereas Tuthmosis is brave and strong.
After the death of his brother Tuthmosis and his father Amenhotep fighting in the Nubian front, Teppy has to now shoulder the responsibilities of the kingdom.
He becomes the Pharaoh now. The story does not end there. Every story from the history is a story of wars, jealousy, deceit, and victory.
