War of the Crowns/Jacq, Christia/Paper/0743449576/S018-C
Queen of Freedom Trilogy, Volume 2
17th century B.C. The barbaric Hyksos have taken possession of the whole of Egypt, imposing their harsh rule with unimaginable cruelty.
Only Queen Ahhotep resists. Not far from Thebes, the only city which retains its independence, she has established a secret military base to train the soldiers who will one day set her country free.
Heading an increasingly powerful army, Ahhotep steals victory after victory, in spite of the treacherous behaviour of a handful of 'collaborators'. From south to north, the Egyptians begin to re-group, becoming stronger by the day - and the occupying forces no longer seem quite so invincible.
But are Ahhotep and her followers being lured into the most elaborate of traps...?
Combining historical fact with a vivid imagination, Christian Jacq tells the enthralling true story of this Ancient Egyptian warrior-heroine, without whom the Valley of the Kings and the glorious treasures of the pharaohs - including Ramses the Great himself - would never have existed.
