(From the publisher):
Ramses faces the challenge of his reign when the powerful Hittites declare war against Egypt. His powerful bodyguard, Serramanna, suspected of treason, has been arrested, leaving Ramses to lead his ragged army alone. His impossible objective: to seize the enemy's impregnable fortress at Kadesh. Yet even as the Pharaoh successfully leads his men onward, other dark forces conspire to stop him. Ramses' sister has sided with their brother Shaanar against him, and his beloved Nefertari lies dying: the victim of a sorcerer's evil spell. With spies everywhere, only Ramses can save her. But will the gods grant the battle-weary king the strength?
