“One of the most anticipated books for me this year I couldn’t wait for the book and I’m so glad it didn’t disappoint. Valley of the Kings is one of my top 5 favorite books this year.” – E Mystone
“Even if you’re not all that interested in ancient Egypt you will enjoy this exciting story written in a fast-paced style with lots of details about things you never knew about this time period.” – Doriano Carta
In the year 1355 BCE, the land of Egypt was the superpower of the known world. King Tut’s father, Akenaten, the so-called ‘heretic pharaoh,’ is on the verge of catapulting Egypt into a revolution that will forever divide its people and rip the most powerful empire on the earth from its foundation. Will Akenaten’s staunch religious conviction protect his people and his family, or will the threat of betrayals, curses, murderous jealousies, plagues, famine, and foreign enemies be their undoing?
Inspired by the Hittite and Amarna letters of the 14th century BCE, ‘Valley of the Kings: The 18th Dynasty’ is an epic novel of intrigue, passion, and betrayal, resurrecting the thrilling story of a singular leader whose beliefs were both visionary and disastrous.
Terrance ‘Terry’ Coffey is an award-winning author, screenwriter, and music composer-producer with a predilection for Egyptian history. He has written numerous short stories, screenplays, television pilots, and even Coca-Cola music jingles. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Terrance now lives in an ambitious little town near Atlanta, Georgia, where he constantly dreams of ancient Egypt.
“An epic historical tale of 18th Dynasty Ancient Egypt, well told and well written, that will capture your imagination and hold your attention for hours. If you have a love for Ancient Egypt, you will thoroughly enjoy this. Even if you know the story already (which is likely), this has added personal extras which makes the reader more than the usual onlooker. I love the way Tutankhamun’s parents were written about here, because in ‘real world’ history, they just disappeared off the face of the Earth. I also loved what Nefertiti became and the name. Sounds plausible indeed. I will be looking forward to the sequel when it comes out.” – Kay Smillie
