Pharaoh of the Sun: Akhenaten and the Culture of Love (Sons of the Sun Book 1), by Wayne Purdin. (Still 0.99?)

Save $4 today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"I felt like I was transported back to 14th-century BC Egypt. I especially liked the use of images of statues and tomb paintings from the 18th dynasty to show Akhenaten, Nefertiti, and other key players in this fascinating story. The image of Queen Tiye really went well with the author's description of her: "The icy glare of her slanted eyes would make even battle-hardened generals back down in a disagreement." This novel is so well-researched, parts of it read like historical fact or historical theory. Those parts blend well with the dialogue and action that is quite moving at times. You can't help rooting for Ahkenaten and feeling sad when his revolution is squelched by the high-priest and other conspirators. But the novel ends with a ray of hope like one of the comforting arm-like rays of Aten. " -- Amazon reviewer

"Pharaoh of the Sun: Akhenaten and the Culture of Love" is a three-part love story. First, there is the passionate love between Akhenaten and Nefertiti and its testing as Akhenaten is forced to marry the seductive Princess Tadukhepa. Then there is the love between Akhenaten and the Aten, who speaks to his heart as he gazes upon the sun disk. His fiery devotion to his one true God puts him at odds against the powerful priesthood of Amen-Ra and the treacherous high priest, Meryptah. Finally, there is Akhenaten's love for his people and all peoples as he establishes a mystery school to teach the children of the leaders of Egypt and other nations. He is aided in this mission by his beloved Nefertiti, Meryra high priest of Aten, and his vizier Nakhtpaaten, also known as Joseph, son of Jacob.

This book is the first in a series of four on the Sons of the Sun. It follows the origins and history of The Teaching from Akhenaten to the present day.

Day of Mindfulness: Living in the Moment (Life Guides Book 4), by Milan Bakrania. (Still free?)

"This is a manual that provides relevant answers to life's difficult questions while instilling people with an arsenal of activities that can harmonize your mind and body. If you follow the step-by-step suggestions prescribed within, broken down into morning, afternoon, and evening phases, there can be no doubt that your life will be affected in an overwhelmingly positive manner. Without hesitation I know that mine has." -- Amazon reviewer

There are 7 billion people on this planet. But, only a limited few are really here, living fully in the present moment. The rest are off somewhere, travelling through their thoughts, regretting the past or worrying about the future.

Mindfulness is simply the act of being completely focussed on the present moment. The benefits are hard to ignore. However, it’s not as easy as it sounds, especially if you’ve been conditioned to think in another way.

‘Day of Mindfulness’ will give you the tools you need to be able to devote at least one day of the week to your wellbeing. It will also correct some of your bad habits such as your erratic breathing pattern and incorrect posture.

This guide has been written with your busy schedule in mind so, like all the books in the Life Guides series, it’s jargon-free and easy to absorb.

So, stop. Place all else aside. Take a long, deep breath and relax. This is your moment. Today, YOU are the master.
