From Our Editors
More than 3,000 years ago, Ramses was born to power and privilege in the Royal household of ancient Egypt. The Son of Light is the first volume of his fictionalized history, and it's the story of 14-year-old boy who must learn to surround himself with friends as he's being groomed for the throne of one of the world's most powerful nations. At last available in North America, the epic of Ramses will move you deeply; it is the story of one of the great Biblical tyrants, told with new compassion.
