Can a slave girl & a boy prince change the course of both Egyptian
& Hittite history?
How far are you willing to go? How much are you willing to sacrifice?
These are the questions King Mursili II has had to ask himself every day
since his 13th year – the year the gift of prophecy had awakened within
him, the year Queen Ankhesenamun’s slave Ida had come to his father’s
court begging for one of Mursili’s brothers to marry the queen and save
the throne of Egypt.
Despite the unfortunate turn of events – his brother’s murder and the
fall of Queen Ankhesenamun, the gods had been quite clear. The fate of
the Hittite Kingdom was linked to that of Egypt. His fate was linked to
that of Ida. If one fell, so would the other. His only hope to restore
his own Hittite Kingdom to greatness was to restore the Amarna line to
power in Egypt, to atone for the sins of his father.
Yet, with those closest to him being sacrificed in the process and the
tide continuing to rise against them, how far is King Mursili prepared
to go to see the prophecy fulfilled?

Born and raised in Houston, TX, I have successfully wormed my way across many a border and have, in effect, managed to infect all that I survey with my particular
brand of grea-ness. My books are very character-driven with a focus on flawed, dynamic, culturally-diverse characters and strong, smart female protagonists.
