    Christian Jacq evokes a fascinating period in Ancient Egyptian history As a child I loved reading about the achievements of this civilisation Christian Jacq goes one step further however, initiating us into the minutiae of everyday life If you love history or Egypt then you ll love this book Wonderful setting, superb characters and a real flavour of the time.

    A solid step up from his other book series I read His characters aredeeply motivated The landscape feels very authentic as did his other, but I feelhistorically indulged in this book I just wanted to sit and read this book all day and night Surprisingly, one of the main characters is really hard to get behind, Paneb, but you see development here and there with him Jacq has the talent to somehow get you interested in him though He is quick to anger, he does not show appreciate A solid step up from his other book series I read His characters aredeeply motivated The landscape feels very authentic as did his other, but I feelhistorically indulged in this book I just wanted to sit and read this book all day and night Surprisingly, one of the main characters is really hard to get behind, Paneb, but you see development here and there with him Jacq has the talent to somehow get you interested in him though He is quick to anger, he does not show appreciate to women, and he even cheats on a wife expecting his baby granted, she did impose herself on him as basically a servant because she was in love with him, which is, well, demeaning in my opinion Yet you can see his maturity sprinkle in the mix I really went back and forth on him While he seemed to begin to show growth in one chapter, he would revert in the next, and then I would not like him as much as the previous chapter But near the end of this book, he did end up beingthoughtful and a better listener He had a love of learning Still, I m not a huge fan due to his outlook on women.In the Queen of Freedom QoF series, most characters had names that were a personality or facial tribute versus an actual Egyptian name This story combines both an Egyptian name and a descriptive name, which makessense than the former Having someone go by the name the Arab and Moustache, while they were great characters, felt a bit like a give up to me on the author s part In this story, characters are given names as they enter the Brotherhood As I mentioned before, the characters in this book have deep feelings They are motivated by internal desires You can really feel the emotion in this story Most of the characters of the QoF series were pretty shallow and showed almost no emotional depth until the end Strong men and women do not have to be devoid of emotions This book seemed to get that While many different characters can take the stage in this novel, their personalities really define them and make you want to keep reading even if you don t like them I seriously did not want to stop reading this book I was a little disappointed that Nefer the Silent s development seemed to stop after his got his name Nefer He became a stoic side character to Paneb sdominating personality I wantedfrom Nefer after he began advancing up the ranks of craftsmen, not Paneb s observations of his ascent.The landscape feltauthentic in this story Jacq put in a great blend of mystical and realism People were inspired and driven by their beliefs, but they had to work hard, show dedication, lead an honest life, and were masters of their own fate They did not rely on signs from the gods before taking action What I do find interesting is that Jacq emphasizes the one God who gave birth to many He hardly mentions the rest of the multitude of gods by name except for a few like Thoth, Hathor, and Sekhmet The emphasis is on one all powerful God This seems a rather Christian emphasis, especially after the hearsay of Akhenaten s one god Historically speaking, there were many different versions of the creation story for the Egyptians So I would conclude this use of God versus god could be because Jacq kept the story in Thebes, and Thebes patron god is Amon The other cities would have their worship and prayers centered on other gods I can say that I liked the way it was handled Jacq had some beautiful allegories with it too His language and expressed enlightened thoughts were a delight in this book, which all stemmed from the religious beliefs This belief also was the foundation for the Brotherhood and guided their methods and rituals There were so many layers to the culture through the religious belief system Everything branches out from this strong foundation I just ate it up the way Jacq used it in the story.As with QoF, the time period is hard to follow Jacq will occasionally throw in a for 10 years now statement, but overall, the passage of time is difficult to tell I did not find it a deterrent though as the characters and storyline were so strong.But what I most loved was the details and the way life was carried out in this village Their work has survived thousands of years They created and decorated the tombs, and we still adore them today This story really expands on life Its not just throwing an ancient world on us to show it off Its about how the pigments of colors were made, the division of work groups and how they functioned together, the way things were measured, how grids were used and the proportions of drawings on these grids, their mathematics, the way a stone was checked to be level, rituals of purification, how medicines were created and used, etc The culture is so thick, and the storyline is made so much richer with these added details of life It highlighted how people behaved and what was important to them I loved learning the trade of these tomb builders along with the characters experiences The book wow d me It had great respect for the people of this time period I m glad I read this after QoF, otherwise that series would have seriously disappointed me after the dazzling depth of this story I can t wait to keep going into book 2

    Read this ages ago in French, now finally re reading it and soon the rest of the series in English I honestly don t think it s a great translation it seems like it s a lot of short simple sentences, which I don t remember finding in French But maybe that saysabout my French skills than the translation Still interesting, despite the detestability of many of the characters I m hoping the rest of the series is better on that score.

    Set myself a challenge to read our old books bookshelf and this was first on the list It was a decidedly battered paperback and I was convinced it would be joining the charity pile, but it s actually fantastic Will definitely be surviving for another day Loved the intrigue of the ancient egyptians, and the individual characters.

    Christian Jacq is an established Egyptologist, but while he is able to communicate his knowledge in written form, he hasn t entirely succeeded in stepping away from an essay like writing style The events in this book series are based on historical events and on primary sources from the New Kingdom workman s village of Deir el Medina, lifting certain character name s directly from those sources Paneb, one of the main characters, is one of the most notorious inhabitants of the village Among oth Christian Jacq is an established Egyptologist, but while he is able to communicate his knowledge in written form, he hasn t entirely succeeded in stepping away from an essay like writing style The events in this book series are based on historical events and on primary sources from the New Kingdom workman s village of Deir el Medina, lifting certain character name s directly from those sources Paneb, one of the main characters, is one of the most notorious inhabitants of the village Among others, we have ostraca accusing him of theft, assault and rape, though it s not clear whether these accusations were factual or slanderous Stone of Light presents Paneb as a protagonist if an impatient, belligerent and aggressive one His personality, like the personalities of every character in this book, is despite this flat There s no unexpectedness every character acts precisely in the way they are required to act in order for the linear plot to move forward Combined with large time skips and plot points that are resolved quickly often in one or two pages this makes the story feel bland andlike reading a paper than actual, suspenseful fiction Antagonist Mehy s scheming is so incredibly transparent that it requires a serious amount of suspension of disbelief to even start entertaining the thought that his success might be credible the entire Theban administration under Ramses II must consist of complete incompetents It would have taken only a single official to actually act according to his station for the conspiracy to come crashing down, but because the plot has been predetermined, there is no room to make it quite that hard for the antagonist.There is also a clear division between The Good and The Bad, both in terms of their looks The Bad are often ugly, fat, or both The Good handsome or pretty , but also in their motivation and character arcs There is on the whole nothing good about bad characters, and nothing bad about good characters Even Paneb s insistence to jump to conclusions and use violence to solve his problems is mostly presented as a good quality Disappointing, because even the Egyptians knew that it wasn t that simple.What bothers me on a personal level is the sexism sexism that isn t inherent in the treatment of women in pharaonic Egypt which wasn t quite as bad as the treatment of women in contemporary neighbouring countries, which the book ironically mentions , but the kind that comes from the author s subconscious or not perception of women The highly stereotypical presentations and descriptions of women are embarassing Only two types of women are described with any kind of positivity the docile and the lascivious and the latter only in the case of one particular character Not a good look The Stone of Light series spans four books, and this first book already spans 10 years Because of this, the book doesn t manage to do anything but feel like a prologue, a 336 page background exposition to prepare for the events to come in the other three books I can t help but feel this whole first book could have been scrapped and its background information seeded throughout the other three But in all fairness, those who read this book will inevitably learn something about New Kingdom Egypt a few Egyptian words, the purpose of Deir el Medina, New Kingdom administrative structure, even a few pharmaceutical treatments for various ailments It s still unfortunate that this information is presented in either dry info dumps or stilted, overly explanatory dialogue, rather than organically throughout the narrative The historical fiction author s pitfall wanting to present all their information to the tiniest detail, whether it has any bearing on or importance for the story they re telling or not Still, Jacq knows his New Kingdom Egypt and the story is reasonably amusing for those who carefor learning through fiction than a perfect narrative Because of that, three stars instead of two

    The story revolves around the Place of Truth, a mysterious village around Thebes, where many secrets are held, and very few allowed to access them There are 3 main protagonists Ardent, a sixteen years old boy who wants to get in the Place of Truth and become a painter, Silent, who was born in the Place of Truth and left it to hear The call of art that will let him come back to the village, and Mehy, a curious counsellor, who wants nothingthan to acess the Place of Truth s secrets an The story revolves around the Place of Truth, a mysterious village around Thebes, where many secrets are held, and very few allowed to access them There are 3 main protagonists Ardent, a sixteen years old boy who wants to get in the Place of Truth and become a painter, Silent, who was born in the Place of Truth and left it to hear The call of art that will let him come back to the village, and Mehy, a curious counsellor, who wants nothingthan to acess the Place of Truth s secrets and destroy the village along.This is my first Christian Jacq book and I m delighted by it As a big history and ancient Egypt lover, I was excited to dive into this story, set in one of my favorites era I was not disappointed I m still surprised by the speed with which I read It took me less than a week to read, when I thought it would take me twice that time However, I was a little scared about all the historical references I might find and the difficulty of it Thankfully, everything that needed explaining was explained easily, in a few line No page long footnote The writing style is fast paced, I never got bored, and the change of character s POVs is very coherent within the story, which is not the case in all books I m glad I never felt like I was reading too much or too few about anyone The balance was perfect, and it makes a good chunk of why I enjoyed this so much.Not only that, but the characters are really likeable From the beginning They all evolve throughout the story, and yet, I loved them since the beginning, which is exceptionnal for me, as I usually have a hard time getting into books Even Mehy is one of those love to hate villains, and I m really curious about his plans in the next book which I already have and plan to read next month I really felt like I was in the Place of Truth with the characters, like I was living in that era and was interacting with everyone Somehow, that book is truly alive, and captivated me as I had not been in a while since Skyward in February March, I think Christian Jacq was a hit a few years ago and was kind of forgotten since Terrible mistake I hope his books get rediscovered soon, because they re really worth it if you re a historical fiction fan Even if you re not, it s still pretty enjoyable
