L'animo del giovane faraone Tutankhamon è turbato: le rivelazioni del principe Meren sull'assassino della splendida regina Nefertiti hanno avvelenato i suoi giorni e le sue notti. Chi può aver osato tanto? E perché? Meren, colui che è Occhi e Orecchie del Faraone, deve rompere gli indugi e stringere la sua tela intorno a un nemico sfuggente, che non ha esitato a uccidere, senza pietà, nel tentativo di cancellare tutte le tracce che potessero ricondurre a lui. Mentre le strade di Menfi si insanguinano ancora, Meren chiede aiuto a uno dei suoi agenti più abili, la bella Anath, colei che è Occhi di Babilonia. E insieme a lei, sulle tracce degli ultimi testimoni ancora in vita della morte della regina, Meren scoprirà infine la chiave per smascherare il colpevole, ma si troverà anche ad affrontare la minaccia più subdola, una sfida estrema davanti alla quale il suo cuore vacillerà...

The final book in Lynda S. Robinson's Lord Meren mystery series was an incredible disappointment. A true let-down that left me feeling robbed, and more than a little angry after having traveled with Meren through so many near fatal adventures. The writing failed to measure up to her previous outstan Leggi tutto
Sorry back to the library. Someone in the Wall Street Journal had listed this as a favorite historical mystery series, but it wasn't hard to see that Ms. Robinson also writes romance novels. If one more Egyptian had let a thunderous look cross his brown or let her eyes question his deeply, I would h Leggi tutto
Not the worst of these books by any means - nice to have it all wrapped up. Still one more short story in the mammoth book of Egyptian whodunnits, but then this whole series can go out and be recirculated so another may enjoy them.
In the 6th volume of her series about Lord Meren, the Eyes and Ears of Pharoah Tutankhamun, Lynda Robinson again portrays the troubled Egyptian New Kingdom in 1329 BC. Lord Meren, chief spy for the young ruler of Egypt, still is investigating the mysterious death of Queen Nefertiti, Tutankhamun's mo Leggi tutto
I wouldn't got that far and say that the book was weak, but I must admit I didn't enjoy it as much as I did the previous ones. While the circumstances made it plausible, Meren did little to impress us with his skills, mainly reaching blindly and rushing in panic. The identity of the culprits also di Leggi tutto
I think this would have earned 4 stars if it hadn't been the last book in this series. It wraps things up but only superficially and there was a lot more that I think could have been done. As a final chapter, it's just ok.
A good wrap up to the long running mystery, but sad there are no more Meren tales to be had.
Great read. Good mystery. Awesome historical detail.
For the Eclectic Reader Challenge I needed to read a 'historical mystery' novel, so I chose a period of history that has always fascinated me - Ancient Egypt. Slayer of Gods is the sixth and final book in Lynda S. Robinson's 'Lord Meren Series' and the mystery in question is the death of Nefertiti. B Leggi tutto
I had to read a book for my Humanities 111 class. I went to the library and asked the librarian to help me pick out a book. I chose this one because all the other books we could find were all 350+ pages, which I definitely didn't want to take the time to read lol. I actually didn't realize it was th Leggi tutto
