First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - The First Pharoah by Lester Picker


An introduction to a book I've started.



The bright afternoon sun changed color slowly, now taking on a reddish hue, not a favorable sign from the gods. I tried to think what it was we might have done that had angered Ra, but my weary mind swam in a fog, so that I felt like a blind beggar on the streets of Tjeni. I was exhausted, standing by the bed of the Queen, watching the great orb of Ra descent under the portico, between two square mud brick columns in the courtyard. It had been almost two days since the Queen started labor and her strength was waning. With her tiny stature and frail nature it was a miracle that she had lasted this long. 


Would you continue to read this one? Yes to lovers of Egyptian history or anything Egyptian. Am just 50 pages in and liking it very much.

Hmmm... probably not but that's because it's not really my genre.
