Pillar of Fire
Egypt s long history has no more mysterious reign than that of Akhenaten, disciple of the One God, the Aten. Akhenaten abolished the worship of all other gods in Egypt and built a city devoted to the Aten, ruling for a decade of increasing civil unrest. Without a son of his own, he was forced to accept his brother, Smenkhkare, as co-pharaoh.
Akhenaten died mysteriously, and the young boy-king Tutankhaten became co-pharaoh with Smenkhkare. Within a few months, much of the royal family was dead of plague, and Tutankhaten took the name by which he is known to history: Tutankhamon.

Brought in chains as a slave girl to the court of ancient Egypt, Nofret knew intimately the key players in an extraordinary era: the pharaoh Akhenaten, who defied the ancient Egyptian deities to worship the One True God; his beautiful queen, Nefertiti; Tutankhamon, the young boy-king murdered in a ruthless struggle for power; Johanan, the handsome young Hebrew laborer who captured her heart and made her a traveler on a miraculous journey; and the legendary prophet and lawgiver who came out of the desert to defy Egypt's power and lead his people out of captivity.
