Historical fiction meets mythology as ancient Egypt comes alive in this monumental epic with over 2 million copies sold around the world.

At fourteen, Ramses, the second son of the Pharaoh Seth, must begin to pass a series of royal tests designed to build his mental and physical prowess-or break him. Is Seth planning to leave the world's most powerful empire to Ramses, and not his corrupt brother, Shaanar? Before he knows it, the younger prince is surrounded by enemies and turning to his friends: Moses, the brilliant young Hebrew; Setau, the snake charmer and mage; Ahmeni; the frail scholar; and Set and Nefertari, the two beautiful women Ramses loves.

And so begins the journey of the hero the world has yet to know... Let the saga begin.

The first in Christian Jacque's bestselling Ramses series, recounting the thrilling story of Ramses, the legendary king who ruled Egypt for more than 60 years. Ramses sets into motion a tapestry of royal intrigue, treacherous plots, and romantic adventures that will keep readers spellbound and hungry for more.

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.
