In the heart of Egypt
Under the watchful eye of the gods
A new power is rising

In the city of Lahun, Hui lives an enchanted life. The favoured son of a doting father, and ruler-in-w aiting of the great city, his fate is set. But behind the beautiful façades a sinister evil is plotting. Craving pow er and embittered by jealousy, Hui's stepmother, the great sorceress Isetnofret, and Hui's ow n brother Qen, orchestrate the dow nfall of Hui's father, condemning Hui and seizing pow er in the city.

Cast out and alone, Hui finds himself a captive of a skilled and pow erful army of outlaw s, the Hyksos. Determined to seek vengeance for the death of his father and rescue his sister, Ipw et, Hui sw ears his allegiance to these enemies of Egypt. Through them he learns the art of w ar, learning how to fight and becoming an envied charioteer.

But soon Hui finds himself in an even greater battle - one for the very heart of Egypt itself. As the pieces fall into place and the Gods themselves join the fray, Hui finds himself fighting alongside the Egyptian General Tanus and renow ned Mage, Taita. Now Hui must choose his path - w ill he be a hero in the old w orld, or a master in a new kingdom?
