(From the publisher):
Akhenaten...the powerful, the pious, the infamous. Raised in the lush embrace of the palace harem, mated to his beautiful, treacherous cousin Nefertiti, the young Pharaoh soon turns his passion heavenward, allowing his love of the sun god Ra to sear his being and consume his worldly attentions. As Akhenaten's rule soars to its finale, ancient Egypt teeters on the edge of a cataclysm, and his family's curse becomes an empire's downfall.
