Recommended Posts

Hello AALBC Members,

My debut novel Valley of the Kings: The 18th Dynasty is a Kindle Scout selection and winner of the 2016 Pacific Book award for Best Historical Fiction. I would love for it to be considered for an AALBC review. Below you will find the pertinent information and thanks in advance for considering me.

Valley of the Kings: The 18th Dynasty by Terrance Coffey

Published July 26, 2016 by Kindle Press (ebooks) and Helm House (print)

ISBN: 978-0692756584

Synopsis: In the year 1355 BCE, the land of Egypt was the superpower of the known world. King Tut's father, Akenaten, the so-called 'heretic pharaoh,' and his wife, Queen Nefertiti, are on the verge of catapulting Egypt into a revolution that will forever divide its people and rip the most powerful empire on the earth from its foundation. 

Inspired by the actual Hittite and Amarna letters of 14th century BCE, 'Valley of the Kings: The 18th Dynasty' is an epic novel of intrigue, passion, and betrayal, resurrecting the thrilling story of a singular leader whose beliefs were both visionary and disastrous.

"Coffey not only creates empathy for and breathes life into historical figures, but he inhabits his narrative with a cast who, like real people, are neither good nor evil, but a confused mixture of motive, belief, upbringing, and circumstance." -Kirkus Reviews
