Amun Moon is a work of fiction based in a world of mythological and historical mysticism and was penned by author Stephen Kunkler. As the opening novel to the Amun Skies Trilogy, the book is suitable for more mature readers due to some scenes of sexual content, language, and violence. The work uses gods and concepts from the Egyptian mythological belief system as the basis of its central premise and retells the tale of Osiris after he loses everything that matters during the reign of Amun-Ra. As deadly threats and new forces change the field of battle, even gods discover there are new things to learn if oblivion is to be avoided.
Fans of Egyptology and stories told by the old mystics and the hieroglyphics in pyramids are sure to be totally enthralled by this dynamic and fascinating retelling of one of the most interesting stories of the time. For those who are brand new to the mythology of Egypt, author Stephen Kunkler does a great job of contextualizing Osiris and the gods around him, setting the hierarchy and the way in which the living and resting worlds both work in harmony and opposition. The prose flows well and is filled with excellent detail and atmospheric lexis that brings the tale to life with passion and authenticity. Character development is also impressive, breathing new life into god figures that we assume much about, but have perhaps never delved so deeply into before. Overall, Amun Moon is a fascinating start to an excellent supernatural and historical series.
