Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Predictable End The Ramses series is entertaining but predictable. Throughout the series, Ramses is depicted as a superhuman and his human side (though not ignored) is barely noticeable. Jacq paints a rather idealized and at times unbelieveble portrait of this enigmatic king. The plot twists were exciting even if they were written with a twentieth century feel. A relatively entertaining book although not recommended for historians.
