Summary

The Ancient Egyptian gods have defeated all the other pantheons and claimed dominion over the earth, dividing it into warring factions. Lt. David Westwynter, a British soldier, stumbles into Freegypt, the only place to have remained independent of the gods’ influence. There, he encounters the followers of a humanist leader known as the Lightbringer, who has vowed to rid mankind of the shackles of divine oppression. As the world heads towards an apocalyptic battle, there is far more to this freedom fighter than it seems.

Disappointing

I’ve listened to quite a few of James Lovegrove’s books with great relish. This book however has been disappointing for me,but I’m not sure if it’s the story, the concept, the writing style, the narration, my expectations or all of the above that left me cold.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
