Queen of Egypt

1334 BCE. Eighteenth dynasty Egypt.

 

Queen Ankhesenamun needs to produce an heir to the throne -- quickly. Pharaoh Tutankhamun is young and weak. His chief advisors are planning his quiet removal and Ankhesenamun hopes to hold them off by producing an heir who can become a stronger Pharaoh.

 

When Pharaoh’s advisors move the court from the desert city of Akhetaten back to ancient Memphis, Ankhesenamun is thrown into a new world of danger, secrets, and old gods. Somebody wants her dead and she doesn’t know who she can trust. 

 

Her dreams have warned her of a blond-haired man who she will fall desperately in love with — and who will die by her own hand.

 

When the man from her dreams suddenly enters her life, she realises just how hard it's going to be to stay away from him. She needs to keep both herself and him alive long enough to secure the succession.

 

Queen of Egypt is book 1 in a new series set in 18th Dynasty Egypt in a world where the old gods have been worshipped for thousands of years and magic is a matter of belief.
