A Discworld Novel. Author: Terry Pratchett.


It’s bad enough being new on the job, but Teppic hasn’t a clue as to what a pharaoh is supposed to do. After all, he’s been trained at Ankh-Morpork’s famed assassins’ school, across the sea from the Kingdom of the Sun. First, there’s the monumental task of building a suitable resting place for Dad — a pyramid to end all pyramids. Then there are the myriad administrative duties, such as dealing with mad priests, sacred crocodiles, and marching mummies. And to top it all off, the adolescent pharaoh discovers deceit, betrayal – not to mention a headstrong handmaiden – at the heart of his realm. (Goodreads summary.)

Content Review:

Sexual content: Character says his mother was a concubine. Character sometimes wonders how he was conceived, since his dreamy father and mother rarely notice each other. Some scantily dressed handmaidens. Some innuendo.

Language: 30 bloody, 21 d***, 15 derogatory terms, 5 hell

Violence: Man jumps off well to his death. Some threatened violence that doesn’t come to anything.
