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. 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. Taharka must choose with whom to side. This novel is inspired by research on the historical King Taharka and his period.
