Bestselling author Pauline Gedge takes readers on a thrilling voyage to ancient Egypt in the stunning King's Man Trilogy. The Twice Born Young Huy is sent away from his farming family to attend a prestigious school for a chance at a better life as a scribe, but a sudden accident renders him unconscious and, to all appearances, dead. His return to life makes him a pariah, ostracized by his visions of the deaths of those around him. But Huy is soon apprenticed to a priest who believes Huy's power will enable him to interpret the Book of Thoth—and Huy's newfound fame attracts the attention of the Pharaoh Amunhotep. Huy begins to realize that his power is not granted to him, but owns him, for he is no longer his own master. He is the King's Man. Seer of Egypt Huy has risen from lowly origins to become the Seer to the King. Yet Amunhotep's patronage is both a blessing and a curse to Huy, who feels imprisoned by his psychic gift and the life he must live to keep it. Though rewarded with wealth and influence, he longs for the pleasures enjoyed by those around him, especially love, which seems forever lost to him. But when the King calls for his help, Huy has no choice. The life he knew is coming to an end, but his contribution to Egyptian history is just beginning. The King's Man Twelve-year-old Amunhotep III has ascended the throne to become king of the richest empire on earth. The boy's mother is regent, and she has brought to court the renowned seer, Huy, son of a humble farmer, to act as scribe and counsel to her royal son. It's a position of power and responsibility, one that is fraught with intrigue and the lure of corruption. For it is Huy who controls the treasury, the military, and all construction and taxation—and perhaps most important, it is Huy who chooses the young Pharaoh's queen. His actions and premonitions, as well as his legendary past, make him very few friends and a great many enemies...
