Ancient Egypt is vividly brought to life in Pauline Gedge's internationally bestselling trilogy Lords of the Two Lands. The Hippopotamus Marsh Hundreds of years under the oppressive foreign rule of the Setiu have stripped Egypt of its majesty. Seqenenra Tao, Prince of Weset, the true heir of the double crown, is pained to see his estate deteriorate and longs to restore the royal bloodline to its former glory. King Apepa's merciless taunting and humiliating requests are a poor disguise for his contempt of the prideful Tao family and their independence. Cornered, the Prince of Weset must choose between complete submission to a foreign king or a daring uprising that is doomed to fail. Seqenenra Tao's shocking decision puts in motion a series of events that will either destroy his cherished home or resurrect a dynasty and an entire way of life for all of Egypt. The Oasis In The Oasis, the captivating second instalment of the trilogy, Kamose has inherited his father's insurgency against Apepa and begins his desperate sweep north for Egypt's freedom. Will his determination and savagery bring him victory or betrayal? And will his acts redeem him or drive him to the brink of madness? The Horus Road The Horus Road is the riveting conclusion of Pauline Gedge's three-volume epic, which chronicles the courageous and often tragic struggle of the Tao Princes to free their country from the foreign rule of the Setiu king Apepa. Ahmose vows to continue the struggle that took the life of his father and brother. It is up to him to devise a strategy to capture the Setiu capital, Het-Uart, in order to free Egypt once and for all. But the devious Apepa will stop at nothing, no matter how ruthless, to rob the Tao family of its chance for total victory. Military might alone will not be enough for Ahmose to breach the city's walls. He will need a miracle from Amun.
