Heta dances in the royal court at Thebes, where her lover Hatshepsut has taken over as regent. The Queen's power is threatened by Menanau and his four servants, who have arrived to tutor the young pharoah, Thutmose III. This interloping lord draws his power from the underworld, his point of origin, for Menanau is Death himself. Hatshepsut's days on the throne seem numbered, except she has one very powerful ally--a young dancer. For Heta also has considerable talent as a necromancer, and she is more than ready to spar with this new adversary. Part of a series of stories featuring Heta, this short novel describes an alternate history of ancient Egypt. In this world, necromancy produces results, monstrous chimera come to life, Death and his minions walk the land in human form, and an underground cult of Ammit, the Devourer of Souls, forms a powerful alternative to the state religion of Amun Ra.
Due to erotic content, this novel is intended for mature audiences only.
