The Ways of Eternity
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In The Ways of Eternity, first in the I, Horus series, Horus draws the reader back to the First Time to reveal the story behind the mythology: In an age of war, a headstrong child, filled with curiosity, burdened by fear, uncovers his powers. A defining, forbidden love sparks, fated to span millennia. The stakes are laid in the battle between the forces of good and evil. Foundations are formed. Friends stand firm. And a visionary young king lifts his mantle and claims his destiny, forging hope, bringing with him the ways of eternity and the promise of the twilight of the morning.
This is how you tell a story!
The author weaves such an amazing tale, I was drawn right in. I am not one who writes reviews often, but it is not often one gets the pleasure of reading a book like this. It makes no difference what you know or don't know about Egyptian gods and goddesses, because The Ways Of Eternity takes vague characters from history and gives them life. The author dusted-off the old volumes and infused them with vigor, purpose, hopes and dreams that we all can relate to and characters that I know I found captivating. I couldn't put the book down for wanting to know what happens to Horus next!
This book comes like a breath of fresh air in that not only is the story intricate and intelligent, but it builds in such a way that I became completely absorbed in this "world" D.A. Dean has created. It takes talent to create such a complex yet believable story and characters. That I believe is a major strength of the book, the characters. Such depth is given to them that I truly began to feel right along with them. I started caring for them, especially Horus. On the description I read this is the first of a series which really has me curious and excited to see where the author takes us next.
The book is so much more than Darkness vs. Light. Yes there are sides to be taken, lines drawn and battles to fight, but it is the emotions and motivations behind it all that make this story great. I will not be one who gives out too much information as not to spoil anything as this is a journey each reader makes and each will find their own answers -- just sit back and enjoy the ride!
Step away from the iPhone
I was drawn in from the intro and found I had a hard time putting this book down! As the adventure unfolds, I couldn't wait to see what was in store for Horus and his companions.
Eagerly awaiting the next installment!
Wonderful Voice, Excellent Story
While familiarity with Egyptian mythology enhances the enjoyment, it's not required. This is character-driven story with likable characters. The imagery is elegant and dialogue distinctive to each character. Looking forward to the next installment.
