Read full description of the books:
The Orphan of the Sun by Gill Harvey takes place under the sweltering sun in the civilization of Ancient Egypt. It is a historical fiction book with a mix of adventure and mystery. This is a book about Meryt-Re, a girl who had been asked to marry by Senmut. She really has no interest in marrying him and has her eyes on someone else. Meryt-Re has lived with her uncle’s family ever since her parents died when she was young. When her step-brother, Baki, becomes ill she is blamed and released from the household. She goes to stay with someone who helps her discover her powers. Meryt-Re uses these powers to solve a mystery and restore order in her town.
I’m not quite sure what I thought about this book. My dream job is to study Egyptian history so you can see why I would pick this book. I defiantly felt like it was more informative than story-like. I learned a lot of new things about the daily life of the Egyptians that I never knew before. It informed me of rituals, gods, culture, and everyday life of ancient Egypt. It was very interesting for me, but I’m not sure I would read a book like this about a topic I don’t enjoy.
It would’ve been better if Gill Harvey used more of the context the Egyptians would’ve used. I felt he was very modern when he put the words in the character’s mouth. For example Baki says on page 101, “I’ll soon make it my business to know where you go.” There wasn’t necessarily ‘business’…but I’m just picky. The author wrote like this so he could relate with a younger audience.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about Egypt, but not someone who is looking for a really exciting thriller.
