(From the publisher):
The mighty Pharaoh Ramses, after winning a major battle against the Hittites, turns to new intrigues aimed at his throne...and heart. His boyhood friend Moses, back from exile, demands the Hebrews' release. An evil mage is plotting to strike down Ramses' first-born son. And lies are turning his concubine, Iset, against his beloved wife, Nefertari. Beset by troubles, Ramses sails for Abu Simbel to build a temple that will immortalize his union with Nefertari and unleash the magic of the goddess Hathor against Egypt's enemies. But loving deeply invites even deeper sorrow, as treachery and a god's wrath rise like a desert storm to threaten what Ramses cherishes most...
