Twelve-year-old Amunhotep III has ascended the throne to become pharaoh of Egypt, 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.

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
