The Horus Road
by Pauline Gedge
Gathering his forces, Ahmose Tao continues the battle that destroyed his father and brother. While he lays seige to the city of Het-Uart, his wife Aahmes-nefertari is creating a royal city to rule Egypt. Het-Uart falls but the enemy has escaped and chasing him could cost Ahmose his wife's love.
In the final riveting volume of Pauline Gedge's Lords of the Two Lands trilogy Ahmose Tao vows to continue the battle that has already destroyed his father and brother. Gathering his forces he is determined to breach the walls of Apepa's capital Het-Uart and depose the Setiu foreigner. While Ahmose spends months laying siege to the city, in Weset Aahmes-nefertari, his wife, is creating a royal city from which Egypt will eventually be ruled. When at last, the city of Het-Uart falls, Ahmose is confident that the double crown will be his. But Apepa has escaped, and still thwarts the liberation of Egypt. Ahmose must make a decision to either chase after the symbols of Egypt stolen by Apepa or risk losing the love of his wife.
