Twelve-year-old Amunhotep III has ascended the throne, becoming king of the richest empire on earth. The boy's mother acts as regent, but she has brought to court the renowned seer, Huy, son of a humble farmer, to be scribe and counsel to her royal son. It's a position of power and responsibility—one fraught with intrigue and the lure of corruption. For it is Huy who controls the treasury, the military, all construction, and taxation—and perhaps most important, it's his task to choose 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...

The King's Man continues the story of Huy—first seen in The Twice Born and Seer of Egypt—and his rise to power and fame. With her meticulous research and compelling prose, Pauline Gedge immerses readers in the ancient and fascinating culture that was Egypt.

Editorial Reviews

"A mesmerizing tale of ambition, fate and wisdom…. The plot unfolds in stately fashion, with Gedge’s extensive knowledge of Egyptian culture on sumptuous display throughout…. Contemplative in its first half, more taut and dramatic in the second, it is a book to savour, a satisfying conclusion to an impressive and awe-inspiring trilogy." - The Globe and Mail
