The third of Joan Grant’s “Far Memory” novels, Eyes of Horus is set in Egypt at the close of the dark XIth dynasty and is a profound commentary on the power of fear and the unlimited ability of light to shatter it. Eyes of Horus is the story, told in the first person, of Ra-ab, heir to the Nomarch of the Oryx, one of eighteen provinces in Egypt. He comes to learn that the Oryx is different from the rest of Egypt, in that it is still in touch with the light. The rest of Egypt is plagued by fear and ruled by corruption. The pharaoh is an ineffectual ruler. The priests have replaced the worship of Ptah with the worship of Set. Only the Oryx has cast off these shackles—and it is from the Oryx that a silent brotherhood arises of the eyes of Horus—the Watchers of the Horizon—to work and wait for the dawn of a new age in Egypt. “Send Fear into Exile” is the Watchers’ password, and when the time is ripe, Ra-ab leads the Oryx and its followers to victory—and a new Egypt. Joan Grant wrote several “Far Memory” novels, based on what she believes are memories from her previous lifetimes in ancient civilizations.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This book is warm with the sunshine of Egypt, delicate with the beauty of its homes and palaces, its surpassing art…There are also stories of graft, of insolent luxury…but through all runs the spirit of chivalry and heroism and faith.” Times Literary Supplement

Author Bio: Joan Grant

Joan Grant (1907–1989) was an English author and well-known advocate of reincarnation. At an early age she became aware of previous incarnations both male and female, in other centuries and other lands. Her seven historical novels have been highly praised for their ageless wisdom and for their extraordinarily vivid and detailed portrayal of the far distant past.
