(From the publisher):
Two glorious decades of peace and prosperity have come to pass in Egypt, and an older, wiser Ramses now prepares for the sunset of his reign. With his second wife, Iset, by his side, he must insure Egypt's future by renewing an old treaty, and choose one of his two sons to someday rule in his place. But old conflicts die hard, and the Hittites' price for lasting peace is high. Their demand: Ramses must forsake his queen and take their princess for his bride. And as a new generation of dark forces reignites unrest, Ramses readies himself for what may be his greatest-and perhaps final-battle.
