I read the first two books Wilbur Smith's first Egyptian series many years ago and enjoyed them. The New Kingdom is the origin story of Hui, a side character in the main series. Hui is the privileged son of the governor of the city of Luhan in Ancient Egypt. After a power struggle in which his stepmother and brother seize control of the city, Hui flees as a fugitive and must live by his wits to survive. He is captured by, and lives among, bands of bandits and outlaws, acquiring skills and strength along the way. He eventually becomes a respected soldier in the Egyptian army but his overarching goal is revenge against his stepmother. I enjoyed the details about life, culture and religion in Ancient Egypt, which I've always found fascinating. The New Kingdom was evidently well-researched. There could have been more character development, especially with the two female characters Ipwet and Ahura. There was so much potential for these women. The action and adventure are non-stop and the book compelling, enjoyable, and hard to put down. ( )
