House of IllusionsRained for the court of Pharaoh Ramses Her talent and guile win her a post in the harem Thu rises in favor is betrayed in a court intrigue that threatens her life and falls from grace Pharaoh spares her life but banishes her to serve the priests at Pauline Gedge as usual is probably the best writer of Egyptian Fiction Her characters and scenes are euisitely detailed whether she writes in the third or first person House of Illusions continues the story of Thu and her son who were separated under edict of Rameses III The ending and events although near the end were rather fantastical and almost predictable If you have not read Lady of the Reeds then you probably would not enjoy this book as much but as seuels go it is uite well done
