I really enjoy this series, and on a sweltering summer day, reading on my screened porch, it's not too hard for me to transport to Egypt. My only quibble is that I really don't care much for Ramses. I know it's very early in Peters' long and brilliant series, so my trepidation that introducing a "cute" (yuck, not really), precocious child character is not actually a jump the shark device.


*** SPOILER ***
Still, though, I knew from the get-go that he was going to HAVE to be the hero and rescuer. Blerggh. Maybe he will just grow up and go away in future novels, or else, alas, I will have to abandon this otherwise very enjoyable author.… (mais)
