Publisher's Summary

Was Andas an android - or the rightful emperor, held prisoner on a distant planet while an android impersonated him on the empire's throne world? Was Tallhassee Mitford a modern archaeologist suffering from strange delusions, or has an ancient Egyptian ankh somehow hurled her personality far back in the mists of time to a Nubian kingdom where she is now a warrior princess named Ashake, caught up in a struggle between the gods of Egypt? Two very different heroes in the grip of forces beyond control, beyond comprehension, both destined to be the only hope of doomed civilizations....

I Don't Want to Rude but not Impressed by Reader

I thought at first the writing of the first book was painfully slow and it couldn't be the one I remember from Andre Norton in 1971. I found my first edition and started reading. However, afterward I decided to play with the reading speech. The Narrator once the the speed was increased to 1.3X was barely tolerable.

The book itself was one of Norton's books from a period where the characters could be broke up into the cultures were broke into various alien and terran tinged culture. Andras, a young man who was in a prison which broke free as one of a number high prisons: a young ruler, one of the cat members and a trade group, a singer of a who is under pressure to sing a sea leader, a pair of criminals, and a politician. But there is possibility the characters might have been androids that have been created to take the place of the prisoners.

I don't know if my pleasure in the story is because of the nostalgia, but I wish that the narrator who be a better, more nuanced reader. I doubt if Andre Norton's are improved by slipshod reading.

The second novel mentioned from 1976 I don't even the heart to listen to any of it, is also painful.
