Ankhesenamun has lost everything, including her position as queen. She is being sent away from Memphis to slave in the Nubian gold mines. But there is one thing that might save her yet: the Eye of Horus, a fabled artefact which is supposed to confer ultimate power on the one who wields it. If she can find it, it might help her to take back the throne and avoid war with the Hittites.
But the gods don’t intend the Eye to be easily found and they’ve barely even begun testing Ankhesenamun to see if she’s strong enough to wield it.
The Amarna Age is 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. For readers of dark fantasy who enjoy an historical setting.
