    Ve bir serinin daha sonuna geldik. :( Seri ne kadar Mısır'ın hanedanlıklar döneminde geçse de dışa kapalı bir köyde geçtiğinden ortalama bir seriydi. Okuduğum yorumlardan da zaten yazarın diğer serilerinin daha çok sevildiği kanısına vardım. Eh, yakın gelecekte okumak istediğim düşünülürse kendi gözlerimle göreceğim diyebilirim. Hakikat Meydanı'nda işler yoluna girdi ancak sarsıntı bir kere başladığında ne yaparsanız yapın yıkımı engelleyemezsiniz diye düşünüyorum.

    Ho iniziato questa saga all'età di dieci anni, grazie ad una bancarella di libri in svendita in un supermercato vicino casa. Ho amato i personaggi di Nefer, Paneb, Claire, Kenhir, Sobek, quasi quasi pure il malvagio Mehy e la consorte Serketa. Ho amato per dodici lunghi anni tutti gli abitanti della confraternita, i colpi di scena, le rivelazioni inaspettate, i finali cliffhanger dal sapore amaro. Ho finito questa serie, dopo un'attesa durata dodici anni per trovare tutti i libri (grazie mercati Ho iniziato questa saga all'età di dieci anni, grazie ad una bancarella di libri in svendita in un supermercato vicino casa.

Ho finito questa serie, dopo un'attesa durata dodici anni per trovare tutti i libri (grazie mercatini dell'usato), e sono contenta di aver vissuto quest'attesa, perché altrimenti non sarei riuscita a comprendere pienamente lo svolgimento degli ultimi capitoli, le morti apparentemente affrettate ma che hanno semplicemente trovato il loro tempo e luogo, il finale che rimanda all'inizio, la maturazione di tutti i personaggi, la rivelazione del traditore che anelavo di conoscere da ben dodici anni. Ed adesso, che mi appresto a concludere questa saga, sono sicura del fatto che rimarrà una delle mie preferite, indimenticabile nella sua poesia e nella sua narrazione di un popolo ormai svanito, di una credenza religiosa in armonia con la natura e con l'arte, una narrazione coinvolgente pur senza inscenare guerre o violenze ingiustificate per mantenere vivo l'interesse. Ora mi appresto a lasciare Silenzioso, Ardente, la ragazza che scelse l'amore per il divino ed il terreno e la confraternita del Luogo della verità, con la consapevolezza di ritrovarli immutati più avanti nel tempo, così come le opere che hanno (nella fantasia della narrazione, ovviamente) modellato per l'immortalità dei faraoni che hanno avuto l'onore di regnare nello stesso periodo di questi bellissimi personaggi.

    Such an enjoyable series. Every morning when I eat my steel cut oats and ground grains loaded with cardamon, fruit, and unsweetened yogurt, I realize I am following in the footsteps of the Egyptians. I mention this only because Jacq does such an outstanding job of creating a world so vivid, you feel you walk within it. His rendering of a world where transmutation of lives and materials happens is just beautiful. The the villain -- he's a very bad boy indeed!

    Me gustó mucho el libro. Los protagonistas, los villanos, la descripción de los lugares. Aún cuando no leí los primeros tres libros, logré entender todo, ya que te explica la razón de las cosas y dan como pequeños nombramientos de anteriores personajes. Tarde mucho en leerlo por que al principio me pareció lento. Pero me gustó. Si, que si. ¿Lo volvería a leer? Tal vez.

    pourtant passionnée par l'Egypte ancienne, j'ai lu de nombreuses pages en diagonale. Trop d'intrigues nuit à la qualité et rend l'histoire peu crédible; à chaque fois qu'une difficulté ou un complot surgissait devant le héros, je me disais : "encore?". et la fin, où il faut bien dévoiler l'identité des "méchants", est trop rapide par rapport au reste du récit : 3-4 pages sur une série de 4 volumes de chaque fois +/- 400 pages. Le soufflé est retombé brutalement. Cette saga ne vaut pas celle que C. pourtant passionnée par l'Egypte ancienne, j'ai lu de nombreuses pages en diagonale.

    I feel like the end was a bit of a let down. The traitor was finally revealed (of course), but I felt like it was almost anti-climactic. There was, as far as I could tell, zero foreshadowing to indicate the identity, and I was just left wondering him...why? but there was no explanation. The other antagonists all died in the last few pages, and in somewhat random ways, so there wasn't a lot of closure. I enjoyed this series, but definitely not as much as some of Jacq's other novels.

    I loved this series by Christian Jacq. Felt like I was in a time machine living their story. Couldn't put any of the books in the seires down and when I finished the final book, was disappointed there wasn't more.
