Kurzbeschreibung

Queen Nefertiti's first daughter is born to save her family, and bring peace to her country after her father introduces a revolutionary form of worship that tears Egypt apart. But can she do it without destroying everyone she loves?

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

At the age of ten, while on a school field trip to a local museum, Merrie P. Wycoff saw a colossal statue of Pharaoh Akhenaten. She was instantly mesmerized, and so was born her passion for Egypt, its history, and its ancient people. That passion has stayed with her from her growing-up years through today, fueled by her long-ago vow to write Akhenaten’s story. Now, with the publication of Shadow of the Sun, she has fulfilled that vow. In addition to a B.A in Public Relations, an M.A. in Metaphysical Studies, and a Ph.D. in Comparative Religion, Merrie is in the process of finishing her Egyptology Certificate with the University of Manchester in Great Britain. But she feels that perhaps the most important part of her education was her time spent with Abd'El Hakim Awyan, a recognized Elder and Indigenous Egyptian Wisdom Keeper of the Eye Tribe and Keeper of the Keys, whom she met on one of her visits to Egypt. Her studies with him taught her things that could not be learned from books, invaluable teachings of ritual, magic, and history, all of which she has put to good use in this book, and in her personal life. Merrie resides in Colorado, close to the majesty and the magic of the Rocky Mountains. There she follows her dual calling as a Vibrational Healer and writer. Shadow of the Sun is her first novel.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Why does this get so many 5 stars? 5. Februar 2013
Von J. Parsons - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
After reading this book I think there must be something wrong with me. I can't believe all the 5 star ratings unless they're all paid reviewers. I can't say I didn't like the story...it was ok, but the writing was horrible! Stilted comes to mind. I had to read things more then once for them to make sense. The story flowed horribly! Is this a teen age book? I actually don't think a teen could follow it. Wow...and I'm shocked at the horrible ending. Did the author fall asleep and just not finish it? I've never seen a book with all 5 star ratings that was so bad. Thankfully it was a cheap read. And thankfully I'm done with it. The only reason I finished it was because of the misleading reviews. I'm being kind by giving this book a 2 star rating.

5.0 von 5 Sternen FAMILY LIFE IN ANCIENT EGYPT 10. Juli 2012
Von Red Rock Bookworm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
For those interested in ancient Egyptian history coupled with a bit of romance and a touch of the paranormal, may I heartily recommend SHADOW OF THE SUN by Merrie P. Wycoff. There have been literally dozens of books written about the eighteenth dynasty of Egypt and each of us has our favorites. Those who read Michelle Moran's look at the ancient Egyptian Royal Court as depicted in NEFERTITI and deemed the writing to be amateurish and the subject matter a course in "history lite", will find SHADOW OF THE SUN a welcome and stimulating example of what compelling writing coupled with meticulous research can produce. It is obvious that Wycoff's fictional account of the tumultuous world of Akhenaten and Nefertiti as described by their daughter Princess Merit-Aten has been thoroughly assessed in it's exploration of the political and religious aspects of the duo's reign. Reading about this dynamic duo is akin to boarding a time machine and venturing back in history to another time when religion was still a "touchy subject" and treachery seemed to be the order of the day.

While the lives of the "major players" in the novel are engrossing, I found the presence of dwarves and their connection to the royals particularly fascinating, as was the use of the word Easting to describe giving birth - ("just as the sun is born each morning in the East, all new life emerges from the same direction").

Ms. Wycoff's love of her subject matter is evident in her writing and she has a definite gift for bringing her characters and her settings to life. The difference between SHADOW OF THE SUN and other books in this genre would be comparable to comparing a bottle of Mouton Rothschild to a bottle of Boone's Farm or 2 buck Chuck. If you like your historical fiction full of the mysticism that permeated ancient Egypt as well as vivid descriptions and emotion that jumps off the page then SHADOW OF THE SUN should be your book of choice

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent novel of ancient Egypt 6. Juli 2012
Von Bruce Trinque - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Merrie P. Wycoff's new novel, "Shadow of the Sun," is set in the Amarna Period of Ancient Egypt, the era of Akhenaten and Nefertiti and Tutankamun, surely one of the most fascinating epochs in human history. I don't believe that you have to be a student of Ancient Egyptian history to appreciate "Shadow of the Sun," although being familiar with the main characters and historical themes can only add to your enjoyment. Through archaeology we know a considerable amount about the Amarna Era, when Akhenaten challenged the power of the old gods of Egypt (and their priests), but many, many things we do not know, leaving rich fields for a historical novelist to explore. What was Nefertiti's ancestry? What part did she play in her husband's religious revolution? Was Akhenaten's campaign to worship the god Aten driven by philosophy or by pragmatic politics? Merrie Wycoff provides answers for these and many other questions, not absolutely conclusive answers with which every student of Egyptian history would automatically agree, but answers consistent with the author's richly detailed portrait of this ancient land and its people.

"Shadow of the Sun" is told from the viewpoint of Merit-Aten, eldest daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, who achieved consciousness before her own birth, marked from the moment of that birth as a figure central to the emergence of a radically new way of life and relationship with the world, visible and invisible. Merit-Aten is a commendable creation.

I found the novel almost literally impossible to put down, and raced through it from the first page to the last without a break. Wycoff demonstrates a laudable mastery of characters, settings, and atmosphere. Her characters are genuine individuals with their own quirks, personalities, limitations, and strengths, speaking in believable (and differentiated) dialogue. Physical details of settings and actions are supplied in abundant quantity to make the novel's various episodes remarkably vivid. This is no dry, philosophical tome, but rather an enthralling story whose central figure passes through not only thrilling and wrenching adventures but also through scarcely less challenging episodes of ordinary life. This is, after all, the tale of a small girl and her family, despite their positions of power and majesty.

Wycoff approaches her subject from decades of intense amateur interest (including the mystical aspects of Ancient Egypt) plus formal academic Egyptological training. Although I myself have no personal interest or belief in the supernatural or paranormal, I cannot emphasize too strongly that such are the author's skills in building her story and characters, I had no trouble whatsoever in suspending disbelief and, for purposes of reading and enjoying this novel, fully embracing the novel's depiction of mystic auras and black magic sorcerers. Merit-Aten's battles with the dark forces are riveting.

"Shadow of the Sun" leaves plenty of room for a sequel, and I truly hope that Merrie Wycoff writes that novel soon; I look forward eagerly to reading it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen This is a splendid and original historical fantasy set in Egypt. 9. Juli 2014
Von super antpod - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a splendid and original historical fantasy set in Egypt. The world the author paints is very authentic and well-constructed. The political developments and the minor histories that drive these developments were engrossing and three-dimensional, which made the setting read life-like.

I particularly liked the way Merit-Aten, the five-year old main character, sees the world. She is technically human, but there is something special and prophetic about her. She has a distinctively elongated head, and she sees people’s emotions as colorful auras. Merit-Aten wants, above all, to learn magic so that she can help people. I enjoyed reading her innocent perspective on the dark, sacrificial, and conspiring force that is the Amun Priesthood. The tribulations the royal family that she is a part of faced to overcome adversity were inspiring.

The events that occurred in the story were very colourful, however I did feel like an observer, mainly because Merit-Aten seemed to be an observer in the story. This is understandable because she was very young; however it did make me feel as if the story wasn’t progressing fast enough where it had significance to the main character. I also found that it wasn’t always clear by the punctuation and formatting who was speaking.

Overall, I thought the story was very enjoyable, and different, which I liked for I don’t always read stories like this. I felt the conclusion vindicated my criticism and seemed to shed light on most of the earlier events regarding Merit-Aten’s quest to learn magic and of her confronting her childhood fears. I recommend this book to any historical or fantasy reader. I’d suggest reading a sample immediately for I was quite taken with the depth of the character Merit-Aten!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Booo-rrring! *Yawn* 4. Januar 2014
Von Mrs. Kabore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Very boring book. It is not easy to read. It is not easy to understand what is happening in the story. I'm trying my best to finish this book, but that doesn't look like its going to happen. Don't waste your money on this book.
