“The Buried Pyramid” begins as the Second Dynasty of ancient Egypt comes crashing to an end with the assassination of King Kha-Sekhemwy, the forced marriage of his daughter to the king's assassin, and the disappearance of Prince Djoser, rightful heir to the throne. The second half of the novel picks up the story thirty years later as Imhotep takes desperate measure to save his daughter's life and triggers a series of tragedies that changes the face of ancient Egypt.
“The Buried Pyramid” is both a prequel and a sequel to “Imhotep,” the first of a tetralogy. The third novel, “The Forest of Myrrh,” continues the story of Imhotep as the Third Dynasty begins to fall. "The Field of Reeds," the fourth and final book of the series, is scheduled for release in 2015.
