Dawn of Ra by M. Sasinowski, Book One of the Blood of Ra Prequel, is a compelling and engrossing story that explores Horus’ early life. Horus, born Heru-pa, is on the brink of his converge where he will take up his true name as Prince of the Rathadi and become one with his sentinel. Unbeknownst to the royalty of Atlantis, however, dark forces conspire in the background to prevent Heru-pa’s convergence as a host of murders against the Pure Ones seek to incriminate the Rathadi and drive a wedge between the diarchy. Confusion, betrayal, lies, and deceit color a history of peace, trust, love, and brotherhood as Heru-pa, Set, and Mia seek to shed light on those plotting in the dark before the bond between kingdoms is irreparably broken.
M. Sasinowski’s Dawn of Ra filled me with suspense and dread as the story reached its climax. I can hardly find words to describe how I felt through all the twists, turns, and heartbreak or how masterfully well the plot is crafted as my mind kept pace with the unfolding events. Very few stories have invested me in the plot and characters as much as Dawn of Ra. The characters are wonderfully written and articulated to the point where I felt every emotion they felt whether it be joy, sadness, anger, hope, or despair. The world is vibrant and the rich cultural and religious identity of each race is conveyed extremely well. Whether a returning reader to the series or a newcomer, like myself, I highly recommend the Dawn of Ra to fans of mythological themes and thrilling epics.
