Ramses: De slag bij Kadesh by Christian Jacq (3 star ratings)
The third book of a five-part series following Rameses II, this book focuses on the coming conflict with the Hittite Empire. The book is an entertaining read, culminating in the Battle of Kadesh. While the first two books in the series had been building up to this point, I found the final battle somewhat underwhelming.
As a lover of ancient history, historical accuracy is important to me in historical fiction. While this book does follow accepted facts and theories of the period fairly well, my The third book of a five-part series following Rameses II, this book focuses on the coming conflict with the Hittite Empire.
While this book does follow accepted facts and theories of the period fairly well, my biggest critique lies on how Jacq relied a bit too much on the historical Egyptian documentation of the Battle of Kadesh.
This is typical of Egyptian propaganda of the time, and I was interested to see how Jacq would portray the events. When in reality, the Egyptian army was being routed by the Hittites, and was only saved by the timely arrival of reinforcements. While there has been an undertone of magical practices throughout the series, I was disappointed to see Jacq take, what seems to me to be the easy way out.
In the novel, rather than having Rameses attempt to hold together his failing forces until reinforcements arrive, the novel unfolds much like the ancient inscriptions tell, with Rameses, in fact, receive divine intervention, glowing like the sun, and single-handedly slaying the Hittite army and turning the tide of the battle.
I was left feeling disappointed. A little more realism would have gone a long way and left me feeling more fulfilled. I am not sure if I will finish out the last two books in the series. This part of the Ramses story I was not very familiar with. Homer makes quite an impression in this period, cautioning Ramses about the consequences of war, and Moses has a small but important cameo. For example, “performance review”, “cardiac arrest” and “provenance”.
The latter I know, is from the French and not used until the 18th century. Was this a mistake of the author or the translator, probably the latter. In my opinion this was the best book from the series so far. There was more action because of the war and this made the story more interesting a easier to get through. I enjoyed it very much and again i red it in one day. I saw the title and thought, hurrah, finally some action. It just takes quite a while to get there. And then when you finally do, it just doesn’t seem to last that long, and I thought the resolution of the battle was a bit of a cop-out.
Nothing to do with reinforcements, then, or his soldiers seeing him taking the lead and following? The prose flowed so much better, and the descriptions seemed a lot more colourful. The sad thing, I think, is that Ramses himself is coming across as a fairly dull character—and I suspect that in reality he wasn’t.
Nefertari is just too perfect, and it’s really Ahsha, Setau and Serramanna that stand out the most. Ofir and Shanaar are almost like comedy villains—”Aha! I shall work some evil magic and end Ramses’ reign! It will take many, many months but I shall be victorious! Oh drat, it didn’t work And I really didn’t need to be told every time Homer shows up that he smokes a pipe made out of a snail shell. His cat, Hector, sounds adorable though.
And, despite the flaws, these books have caught my interest sufficiently that I’ve kept reading them.
Ancient Egyptian war-time is brought to life through this easy-to-read novel. The ancient ways were well researched and interesting. The storyline was quite simple – nothing too exciting but still amusing. The characters were not as mysterious as the characters in Jacq’s other novels. They were either good or bad with a handful of characters who swapped from being bad to good. Invincible the Lion was my favourite character.
This book is a good book if you just want to relax and take in a little Ancient Egyptian war-time is brought to life through this easy-to-read novel.
This book is a good book if you just want to relax and take in a little Egyptian serenity. Good book overall, but the kadfsh are somewhat under-developed. Ramses and Nefertari talk too seriously to be believed, and only the side characters get to have any fun. Still – Jacq is skilled in his descriptions of ancient egypt. Voto tre la Saga per premiare la scorrevolezza della storia, a dispetto delle singole trame, molto poco storiche, e dello stile.
Still an interesting story, but I’m very tired of being introduced to the same people over and over again. Yes, I know that Nefertari is the queen of Egypt, that Homer drinks spiced wine and likes to sit under a lemon tree and the names og Ramses’s closest friends and his siblings.
Missed the second book, but thought I would give the next one a try. Once again I enjoyed the background details, but found the characters rather one dimensional. Need to btaalla this before I can comment further. Ditto for book no. This book was a little harder to follow due to Jacq’s incorporating the Hittie Empire into the story, but it also was a bit bland story wise.
It took me longer to finish. Onto the next book! The great and celebrated battle.

Each volume encompasses one aspect of Ramesses’ known historical life, woven into a fictional tapestry of the ancient world for an epic tale of love, life and deceit.
