Review by: Steve Cary on March 25, 2013 :
For even the most engaged historian, Ancient Egypt always seems to pull us toward the mysterious. Set in Khufu's Egypt, the time of the old Kingdom, Hank Lawson's 'Two Horizons' does a wonderful job of bringing this period to life. I had the chance to read the manuscript over a year ago in a different format and found it compelling reading start to finish. Most notably to me was the author's ability to blend perfectly the very foreign lives of two ancient Egyptians (a Pharaoh and commoner) while still bringing a deep understanding of their humanity. They are equally as far from our own era, but as close as our own hearts. I found it to be a profound meditation on loyalty and love. The writing is strong in both scene and summary, with a plot that keeps the reader focused and carried along with the lives of the characters. It is a fine novel, and one that does not disappoint.
