Books Of The Month

November-December 2013



For lovers of medieval historical fiction novels, this is well recommended.

It covers the sons of the de Hauteville family, Norman nobles who conquered southern Italy and Sicily, just prior to the Crusades.

It is a history not covered before - and not because it is a prosaic episode in history.

OUT OF THE BLACKLAND by Kerry Greenwood

Eighteenth Dynasty Egypt is peaceful and prosperous under the dual rule of the Pharaohs Amenhotep III and IV, until the younger Pharaoh begins to dream new and terrifying dreams.

Narrated by two main protagonists, Mutnodjme, sister of Nefertiti and by Ptah-Hotep the royal scribe, Out of the Black Land covers the disastrous reign of Akhenaten who attempted to destroy the old gods of Egypt in favor of the Ra.

It is a different take on the period and well worth reading. It is excellently written, with a narrative that keeps you turning the pages and ultimately hoping the author writes more in the Egyptian historical genre.

The author is better known for her excellent Phryne Fisher Mysteries
