"No more exciting time could have been chosen by the skilled storyteller, Andre Norton, as a setting for a thrilling novel, than the beginning of Egypt's fight for freedom against the hated Hyksos invaders about 1590 BC. Two young princes, aided by the Shadow Hawk of this story ... who spurred them on and fought magnificently himself at the head of his tiny group of skilled Nubian archers.
"The tale will be enjoyed not only for the vivid background but for the organization of the army, the raids and forays, the taming of the war lion, and the dramatic siege of Neferusi. This is an intensely masculine Egyptian historical novel ..." So wrote a NY Herald Tribune reviewer.
