Editorial Reviews

History meets fantasy in Judith Tarr's Lord of the Two Lands. Meriamon, daughter of Pharaoh, journeys to ask Alexander the Great, king of Macedonia, to rule over Egypt as well. While in town, Meriamon falls for one of Alexander's soldiers, though circumstances keep them apart. John McLain lends gravity to Tarr's imaginative prose. His deep voice paints this old world, full of passion, magic, prophecy, and power. Alexander the Great fans with a penchant for fanciful and romantic plotting will enjoy this story about a strong female heroine.

Publisher's Summary

In 336 B.C., Egypt lies under the yoke of Persia. But a spirit of fire has risen to blaze across the world. His name is Alexander, and he is the destined conqueror of the Persian Empire - and the king foretold of Egypt. Meriamon, daughter of the last Pharaoh, journeys out of the Two Lands to find him and bring him home. From the battlefield of Issus to the siege of Tyre, from the founding of Alexandria to the divine revelations of Siwah, Meriamon both leads and follows her divine charge, who becomes her friend and her chosen king.
