Circa 1350 BC: the era of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, and a young King Tut. The great pyramid of Giza is already more than 1000 years old. Akhenaten has declared himself the conduit to Aten, the one God, taking power and money from the priests of Amun-Re. Sixteen-year-old Meret trained as a temple dancer - a position that requires strength, discipline, and acrobatic ability - but she was ejected from the temple when her father switched his allegiance to Aten. Now her father has been arrested, accused of treason. Determined to fight against the loss of everything she holds dear, Meret seeks help, guided by a mysterious young man from a dream. When she visits the abandoned temple of the Pharaoh Queen Hatshepsut, what she finds will change her view of the world... and her future.
