Review - Hatshepsut: The Pharaoh-Queen of Egypt by in60Learning

Hatshepsut: The Pharaoh-Queen of Egypt

Volume 0 of in60Learning

Hatshepsut is a figure that's always fascinated me, although she is probably not widely known, so when I saw that in60Learning had a book about her, I decided to use it to learn a little more. She ruled Egypt around 1479 to 1458 BC and is from the line that gave us Tutankhamun. The popular headline is that she was the first woman to rule as Pharaoh in ancient Egypt, but one of the big revelations of the book is that this is not exactly true. More

Surrendering for Two

Volume 4 of Soul Match

Unlike Chris and his cousin Morgan, Graham wasn't fortunate enough to fall into the hands of “uninfected” Alasharians who wouldn't harm him. Instead, he had the misfortune to end up with the Alasharian leader, the Nall, who has been infected by the evil force of the Void. The Nall abuses Graham sexually and even scars him before the young man is rescued from being put to death at the end of the previous book, Hiding From Two. Although an Alasharian is one of the people who rescue Graham, he still finds it almost impossible to trust them, so how will he react when two of them appear to be his soul mates? More

Lander

Volume 2 of The Oberon Cycle

Xander and Jameson may have thought the hard part was over once they managed to re-unite Oberon and Titania, two halves of a planet split between two universes by unknown forces many millenia ago. But rejoining the two worlds unleashes cataclysmic storms and avalanches, from which our heroes and their friends barely survive. Then there's the problem of the un-winged humans, the “landsers.” They now have free access to the winged Skythane of Titania and seemed determined to wipe them out. The two new kings have a lot of work to do. More

The Harvest: Taken

Volume 1 of The Harvest

In the year 2050 humanity finally gets incontrovertible proof of alien life when large ships appear over several major world cities. The ships belong to the Tah'Narians, an advanced race of cat-like humanoids. Although they possess sophisticated technology, the Tah'Narians have lost the ability to reproduce, so they have come to earth to “harvest” young males with whom to mate and have young, after a little genetic modification. Faced with the obvious technical superiority of the Tah'Narians, the world governments agree to set up a lottery to decide which men will be enlisted to go with the aliens when they return each year. Dale is a few weeks below the minimum age of 23 when the current harvest begins, so he thinks he is safe. He couldn't be more wrong. More

Hiding From Two

Volume 3 of Soul Match

Chris' cousin Morgan takes center stage in this third installment of the Soul Match series. The skittish young man continues to have uncomfortable thoughts about Halosh, the Alasharian who guarded him after the disastrous pleasure party thrown by the Nall, and now he's about to meet Rama, the commander to whom he is ostensibly going to be a slave for. When the two finally do meet, things don't go at all the way Morgan expected. More

Alexander the Great: Student of Aristotle, Descendant of Heroes

Volume 0 of in60Learning

in60Learning is a new range of books designed to provide and overview of people and events of the past in an easily digestible format. With a total print length of around 40 pages, they are meant, as the publisher's name implies, to be read in around 60 minutes. The publisher offered me my choice of books for review. I chose the Alexander biography since he is a character that continues to fascinate me. I've read a lot about him; much of it fictionalized, to be honest, but I thought I still knew enough to judge what the book offered. More

Unraveled

Auto mechanic Max has his hands full taking care of his daughter, who he shares custody of with her mother. He is definitely thinking about finding the “right girl” and settling down, but nobody he meets seems to spark any deep feelings. Max's roommate and best friend Clay's situation isn't much different. He's busy running his business and helping Max take care of his daughter. Only, in Clay's case, he just hasn't found the right guy, which is doubly hard for him given his need to be tied up to really enjoy sex. More

Bound by Destiny

Volume 2 of The Harvest Young

This second book of The Harvest Young series picks up several years after the first book, Bound by Fate. Where Szin was the focus of the first book, his brother Raiden is at the center of this story, along with his mate Dayo. The two young mixed Tah’Narian/human males are both serving on a star ship, and now that their careers are established they're thinking of starting a family. But a couple of seemingly inconsequential encounters on the planet Quai sets off a chain of events that may destroy the couple's plans. More

All the World's an Undead Stage

Volume 6 of Offbeat Crimes

The Offbeat Crimes series [finally] comes to an end in this sixth and last book. The squad's not-quite-completely-a-vampire Carrington takes the lead, along with his boyfriend Erasmus. All the officers are hot on the trail of whoever it is that keeps throwing all manner of paranormal creatures in their way, as recounted in the first five books. The main threats this time are zombie actors, who seem to be menacing most of the squad in general, and one officer in particular. More
