Description

In ancient Egypt, a woman might be king—but the price she paid would bind her soul for eternity. Hatshepsut, the Great Royal Wife, is bound in marriage to her brother, Thutmose, whom she despises. Unable to give him a son and heir, though she does produce a daughter, she sends him a surrogate and a distraction, the beautiful young concubine, Isis. Isis provides him with an heir, but when the king dies while his son is yet a child, Hatshepsut raises herself from queen regent to ruling king. And all the while, the royal heir, the son of the concubine, watches and waits. Senenmut the scribe, sharp-tempered, arrogant, and much too intelligent for his own good, is sent to the queen as a servant, and becomes her friend and more than friend. With Nehsi the Nubian, her loyal guardian, he defends her in both life and death, and sets out to preserve her memory for everlasting.
