Book Description

A never-before published tale by the author of the best-selling Hittite Warrior, carries the reader back to Ancient Egypt and to the biblical Jerusalem. Around 701 B.C. Egypt is being ruled by the Kushite dynasty. Young Prince Taharka, a very minor royal son, succeeds unexpectedly to the throne of Kush and Egypt—a “divine” rulership. He begins to find his way...until a treacherous plot pushes him into sudden exile and into the hands of Amos, an emissary of King Hezekiah seeking help for Judea from the Egyptians against the Assyrians. Far from home, near Jerusalem, and found out in his disguise as a medical assistant, Taharka encounters two kings in conflict. One is the mighty Assyrian, Sennacherib, promising alliance; the other is Hezekiah, the Jew who trusts in Yahweh. Taharka must choose with whom to live or die. This novel is inspired by research on the historical King Taharka and his period. Introduction, with home-education suggestions, by Daria Sockey.
