Publisher's Summary

From palace coups in the lost city of Hattusas to treachery in the Egyptian court of Tutankhamun, that is the world of I, the Sun. This is the saga of the Hittite King Suppiluliumas, and rings with authenticity and the passion of a world that existed 1400 years before the birth of Christ.
They called him Great King, Favorite of the Storm God, the Valiant. He conquered more than forty nations and brought fear and war to the very doorstep of 18th Dynasty Egypt, but he could not conquer the one woman he truly loved.

A brilliant piece of work for Morris, well researched and creating a spectacular delivery.
The author's knowledge of Hittite culture is stupendous and the book is filled with feeling and understanding, delving into the depths of this amazing over 500pg read.

A mountain of research has been done by Morris in the multitude of works she has produced and all divulge a magnificence in her writing - an author truly worth looking into for interesting historic and epic tales.

Well told atory


What other book might you compare I, the Sun to, and why?

There are a number of books about historical figures this one did remind me of Mary Renault's books about Alexander The Great.


Have you listened to any of Chistopher Crosby Morris’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is the first book I've had with this narrator his lack of of an American accent made it a surprise when some words were pronounced the American way i.e. Shone pronounced as Shown.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

His final farewells to his sons were moving.
