Overview

Unrecognisable, the Herald is hiding at the very heart of Abydos. With his accomplices, he is preparing to commit the supreme crime. By bringing death into the kingdom in order to prevent the resurrection of Osiris, he will at last be able to overthrow Pharaoh Sesostris, seize power and spread his evil doctrine far and wide.
Will Iker manage to fulfil his mission, to celebrate the mysteries of Osris? In the face of misfortune, will the priestess Isis bring her Quest for the Impossible to a successful conclusion? And can death really be overcome?
After forty years spent fervently studying the doctrines of Ancient Egypt, Christian Jacq closes the series by revealing the Great Secret of resurrection. This mystery was at the very centre of Egyptian thought and pharaonic civilisation, and is the key to a modern understanding of Ancient Egyptian life.
