More About This Book

Overview

San, the son of a baker, and Aja, the daughter of the high priest at the temple of Ra, definitely come from opposite sides of the Sphinx. But when it comes to Sheskhaf, a priest who has only recently joined the temple's ranks, San and Aja are on the same side in finding him thoroughly detestable. Drawn together by Sheskhaf's thoughtless cruelty, San and Aja discover not only friendship, but intrigue.
Why has Sheskhaf come to the temple? What secret disaster has befallen the half-constructed Sphinx, the grand monument to beloved Pharaoh Khafre? And can someone in their very midst truly be plotting to kill a god?
When San and Aja discover the answers, they must also decide what two powerless children can do. With Pharaoh Khafre's inspection of the Sphinx set to happen soon, time is running out. Fighting against the most powerful forces in the kingdom, fighting against rigid class lines that forbid their friendship, can they stop the most unthinkable of all blasphemies in ancient Egypt?
They must, for if they fail they will they lose everything they hold dear. Perhaps even their lives.
