Five centuries after Ramses, the empire seems to be hurtling towards ruin. Peye, the Black Pharaoh, governs his kingdom with wisdom and kindness. He has only one desire; to return the Gods to a united Egypt.
But one man, a Nubian, refuses to accept this. Piankhy, the Black Pharaoh, rules his Southern kingdom with wisdom and kindness, rejecting the dark destiny that seems to await all Egypt. In his heart, he has only one wish: to return the Gods to a united Egypt nurtured by love and justice.
But the price to pay for this will be a heavy one for this man of peace: it will mean confronting the Lybian Tefnakt, a ruthless and ambitious prince of the North, who is determined to restore order and reign as Pharaoh in splendour by taking the country by force.
War between the Black Pharaoh and the Libyan prince is inevitable. Despite his courage and bravery and his wifes magic, is the Black Pharaoh really capable of achieving the impossible?
The survival of a thousand-year-old empire hangs on the victory of one of these two inflexible wills in this epic tale of real adventure.
