From the author of Mysterious Kemet – Book I, read five new novelettes that tell tales of passion, greed, seduction, ambition, and conspiracy. Set in Ancient Egypt, these stories will take you back to a time when being buried with the King was an honor as was being sacrificed to the Nile, and when life, love, and death were all held hostage by rites, rituals, and traditions.
The River Bride In pre-dynastic Egypt, the androgynous river god Hapi awaits his bride. As the greed of one woman collides with the desire of another, a young man tries to save the girl he loves from a lottery that has all odds stacked against her. In the tumult that ensues, a middle-aged priestess, who is caught in the conspiracy unawares, must either overcome her revulsion for a dwarf’s overtures or face certain death.
The Necrophile’s Ring The city of Thinis is undivided in its opinion. The Necrophile must burn for his depravity. As the accused waits for his sentence to be carried out, three women - a love-priestess, a troubled wife, and the young daughter of an embalmer, struggle to discover the truth and find a proof that could save an innocent life.
The Breweress of Ombo Caught in a complex web of Roman politics, royal fratricide, and two fruitless incestuous marriages, Cleopatra must use her charisma and ingenuity to find a way to follow her secret dream, but despite all her efforts, she should pay for it with a crown and the life of a loved one.
The Spinner of Dreams As Pharaoh Ay lies dying, his son Nakhtmin, the crown prince of Egypt, must either accept the crown and rule Egypt, or change Egypt’s destiny by exacting an unexpected revenge from his ambitious, brilliant, but homophobic father who killed not only Nakhtmin’s lover, but also his love for life.
The Blue Lily Like the other chosen ones, Mentu is destined to follow his King into the afterlife. Following the death of the King, he must place his trust in Khuit, his concubine of ten years who was once a wharf-wench. For both Mentu and Khuit, it is their only chance at life, but what is life for one, is death for the other, unless fate intervenes.
