Set in Ancient Egypt, Red Nile explores the turbulent times immediately preceding the reign of the famous boy-king Tutankhamen. Known history of the 18th Dynasty is blended with fiction to weave a fantastical tale which answers the open questions of the period.
• What happened to the mummies of Nefertiti and her husband the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaten?
• Who was Smenkhare and why do we know so little about the short reign of this enigmatic Pharaoh?
• What happened in the final days of the reign of Ahhenaten?
• Why did the worship of only one god, the Aten, fail?
Rich in historical facts, Red Nile spins an intriguing tale as we meet the living avatar of the sun god Ra and his plans to restore the old order and worship of the classical gods of Egypt. Co-regent Smenkhkare and Queen Nefertiti are drawn into Ra’s plans to restore the glory of Egypt and the power of the gods. Follow them through the final glory days of the city of Akhetaten, called The Horizon of the Aten by Akhenaten, and step into an alternate version history.
