I enjoyed Mary R.
Woldering's rich evocative writing in this story based on her research
into ancient mythology. The action takes place in or around 'Kemet' -
ancient Egypt, following the main character Marai - a humble shepherd as
he encounters the mysterious Children of Stone, who arrive from the
heavens. At first he takes them for the goddess Ashera, but soon finds
out they are something else entirely, rejuvenating his body and sending
him out on a mission to meet an enigmatic priest or his assistant. Soon
after his encounter, he saves three women from slavery, and welcomes
them as his 'wives'. The book is reminiscent of works such as Gilgamesh
The King, Games of Thrones - the Dothraki, The Alchemist, or the tales
from One Thousand and One Arabian Nights. Perhaps what is most original
here is the way the author digs down deep into the motivations, desires
and emotions of Marai and his companions. Recommended for fans of epic
fantasy / mythology tales.
