A fantasy epic set in Ancient Egypt.
Based loosely upon the mythological exploits of Horus and Seth, this novel follows the bitter rivalry of two princes, twin heirs to the throne of Egypt. After an attempt on his life, Usara Djedra finds himself outcast and amongst enemies. He must now choose either to turn his back on his birthright and begin a new life amongst the tribes of the Eastern Desert, or to return and confront his brother for the throne. Yet even the gods are not silent and it soon becomes clear that Djedra's own fate is bound up with that of a young servant who saved his life. As Djedra battles with the possibility of his own divinity, he is forced to ask the question: is there more than meets the eye to the servant-boy who tamed the Sun?
