In the year 205 B.C., after centuries of Persian and Macedonian occupation, a rebel king rises from the south to take ancient Egypt back unto native hands. He will battle the Ptolemy line for twenty years, and rule almost eighty percent of Egypt, yet in the end, history will barely mention his quest.

Born Prince Ankhmakis, the last in a line of native Egyptian kings, he is raised with one purpose—to help his father reclaim Egypt from the Macedonian occupiers, and return their country to dynastic greatness. Yet at his heart, Ankhmakis is a poet who sings to the sunrise and longs to spend his days in the company of his beloved, Natasa, the twin of his soul. Theirs is a world of magic, power, riches, and lust, and there are those who would do anything to keep Ankhmakis and Natasa apart. He must battle his own brothers for the crown and overthrow the Ptolemaic Empire, while protecting Natasa against all odds. For lies and deceit live in the hearts of all involved, from his family to the priesthood, and the Greeks aren’t the only ones who seek to destroy him.

The Song of the King’s Heart trilogy begins in Origins, with a boy who helps his father build an army, continues in Blood and Chaos, as he fights to reclaim his country, and concludes at Civilization’s End, with a pharaoh ready to hand his son the crown. The series chronicles over twenty years of plotting, power plays and politics, as well as sex magic, love, and redemption. In the arms of his lover, Ankhmakis explores the deepest mysteries of the temple of Isis, while on the battlefield he discovers the power of the god of Chaos. And while his life’s mission is to remove the Ptolemys from Egyptian soil, the perfidy within his own family leads to the final betrayal that ultimately ends his reign.

In 196 B.C., Ankhmakis was crowned Pharaoh Ankhwenefer in Thebes, but he became the forgotten Rebel King of Egypt, the last native to rule the land of Kemit. In his defeat, all of his own scribes’ work was destroyed. His name chiseled from every stone surface in the Upper Kingdom, his monuments demolished, and the city of his birth burned to the ground and left to be buried under the sands of time. He controlled the Upper Kingdom of Egypt for decades, yet no one beyond the borders of his country knew his name.

Until now.
