A Review of Christian JacQ's The Tree of Life

The Tree Of Life (The Mysteries of Osiris, #1)The Tree Of Life by Christian Jacq
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A tale about an apprentice scribe kidnapped in ancient Egypt. I liked the gentle pace of the tale and how Iker's life develops in a series of unexpected events. The writer nicely captures the Gods of ancient Egypt, their relationship with their animal representatives on earth and the people's beliefs. There's a good promise of more to come and definitely an interesting tale. Perhaps too many names starting with S that it did get a bit confusing at times. This will mainly appeal to fans of Egyptian historical fiction.
