Overview

The Eyes of Pharaoh, 1177 BC: During the reign of Pharaoh Ramses the Third, Seshta, a 13-year-old dancer in the Temple of Hathor, dreams of becoming a famous entertainer. Horus, the brother of her heart, is content as a toymaker's apprentice. Reya, at 16, has joined Egypt's army with hopes of becoming a hero. Despite their different paths, nothing can break the bonds of their friendship. Yet when Reya hints that Egypt is in danger from foreign nomads, Seshta and Horus don't take him seriously. How could anyone challenge Egypt?

Then Reya disappears. Seshta and Horus set out to find him--and discover a darker plot than they ever imagined. To save their friend, Seshta and Horus spy on merchants, soldiers, and royalty, and start to suspect even The Eyes of Pharaoh, the powerful head of the secret police. Will Seshta and Horus escape the traps set for them, rescue Reya, and stop the plot against Egypt in time?

Set in ancient Egypt, this story of drama and intrigue brings an ancient world to life. The ideas in this book echo in the international politics of today, while the power of friendship will touch hearts both young and old.

Readers agree:

"Mid School students and their teachers will love this fast paced mystery that has so much history and culture hidden in plain sight.... You won't be able to put the book down until you learn what happens to the three friends."

"THE EYES OF PHARAOH delivers what I expect from author Chris Eboch - exciting action with interesting characters, a brisk plot line and historically-accurate details of the book's setting. The concepts of loyalty and friendship are as relevant today as they would have been to the main characters in this book despite the thousands+ years difference in time. Another good read from a solid author."

I'm using this book as a supplement to my kid's lessons on Egypt. It provides some interesting cultural background, and the story itself is interesting enough to keep them engaged.

I've had a love affair with ancient Egypt for so long I can't remember how or when it started. When I had a chance to spend a week there in 1989, I found the modern country just as fascinating and wonderful and I'm sorry I'll probably never get back there, also sorry for the political troubles that plague those wonderful people. Anyway, I'm always delighted to read any fiction or nonfiction about Egypt, especially set in ancient times and The Eyes of Pharaoh hit just the right spot with me. Most of the mysteries I've seen set in this civilization are adult, which is great, but it usually means the characters are officials or slaves or high society, not so much the general population. These teens are a good cross-section, if you will, with a temple dancer, a soldier and a servant's son, and I think that really added to my enjoyment because they're not yet mature enough to be leery of risk and adventure and they're comfortable with day-to-day life among the common people. One of the trio has gone missing and the other two are determined to find him. 'Nuff said. Because I love Egypt and its history so much, I wholeheartedly approve of anything that might entice young readers to fall under its spell and this book would be an excellent introduction. And, for those of you who aren't so young anymore, you should give this a shot for rousing exploits and a darned good mystery ;-)

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite The Eyes of Pharaoh by Chris Eboch is a story with Egypt as its backdrop. It revolves around three interesting characters, Seshta, Horus and Reya. Each one of them has dreams but still their bonding is strong. The plot takes a turn when Reya tells Seshta and Horus that Egypt is in danger before he disappears. Seshta and Horus find themselves on a path where they have to try to escape from being trapped and not only rescue Reya but also save Egypt. Set in ancient Egypt, the story not only speaks about the friendship between the three friends but also gives a peek into the culture and history of ancient Egypt. I found the book fascinating for many reasons. It is informative and educational and it is not only about Egypt but also about friendship and loyalty. The many dimensions in the plot make it an engaging read. The characters are relatable and the author's writing gives a good pace to the story. The twists and turns in the plot make it a compelling read. The setting of the story shows the extensive research the author must have done to make it enjoyable to readers. The mystery that runs through the plot is intriguing and the images are vivid. The author does an excellent job by bringing ancient Egypt to life through this story and giving readers a lot of information about the beliefs that existed in society during that period, as well as the culture and history.
