In the year 205 B.C., after centuries of Persian and Macedonian occupation, a rebel king rises from the south to take Ancient Egypt back unto native hands.
Born Prince Ankhmakis, the last in a line of native Egyptian kings, he is raised with one purpose—to help his father reclaim Egypt from the Macedonian occupiers and return their country to dynastic greatness. Fate, however, has its own plans.
Natasa is in training to become the High Priestess of the Temple of Isis. Her task is to strengthen the royal family with the magic of the goddess through love and pleasure. She never thought the connection between her and Ankhmakis could be so strong or carry a power coveted by those lurking in the shadows.
Together, Ankhmakis and Natasa must defend the potential of their love from those who would seek to use it for their own gain. There are those within the court who would do anything to keep Ankhmakis and Natasa apart. Between mystical forces, murder, and illicit schemes—only the gods know if they’ll survive.
