Pharaoh Ramses II hasn't seen his long-lost cousin Moses in nearly forty years. Yet while pressed by the Hittites to the North and construction delays in the South, Ramses must make time for this ancient desert rascal, the long-ago mystery he represents, and the impossible demands of an alien deity. Drawing on the Bible, the Qur'an, and historical sources, writer A. David Lewis (Mortal Coils) and artist Marvin Perry Mann (Arcana Jayne) present a retelling of the Book of Exodus through the eyes of the man who is either its greatest leader or its worst villain: a man trying to rule wisely, love his family well, and deal justly in the face of a divine wrath.… (more)

Have you ever thought about Moses and The Exodus story and wondered how the Egyptians felt about it? Do you think they were truly evil and, considering the plagues that befell them, extremely stupid for continuing to defy God's will? This book attempts to humanize the Egyptians and the Pharoah who crossed Gods with Moses by putting them in an historical perspective taken from a number of sources. Moses, to them, was someone who came in, disrupted their way of life and almost destroyed their civilization. As much as he was a hero to the slaves, he sure wasn't to the Egyptians. I'm sure you can see and understand the paradox. For that alone, this book is a gem. Add to it the impression of daily life back then, and it becomes a treasure of imagination, thought, and story. The art, unfortunately, was something I couldn't always get a handle on -often losing visual on who was who. The coloring, on the other hand, was just perfect. ( )
