Description - House of the Eagle by Duncan Sprott

The House of the Eagle begins Duncan Sprott's Ptolemies Quartet, an epic story of the Greek Pharaohs of Egypt, whose extraordinary dynasty spans twelve generations from the death of Alexander the Great to the fall of Cleopatra. Narrated by Thoth, the ibis-headed Egyptian God of writing and wisdom, The House of the Eagle chronicles the golden years of the first three Ptolemies - the shrewd Ptolemy Soter, the luxury-loving Ptolemy Philadelphus, the empire-building Ptolemy Euergets - and their tragic queens, pampered mistresses and turbulent children. Very soon their public triumph is marred by tragedy as the dynasty embarks on a rampage of matricide, infanticide, conquest and murder . . .
