Twelve-year-old Amunhotep III has ascended the throne to become pharaoh of Egypt, the richest empire on earth. The boy’s mother is regent, and she has brought to court the renowned seer, Huy, son of a humble farmer, to act as scribe and counsel to her royal son. It’s a position of power and responsibility, one that is fraught with intrigue and the lure of corruption. For it is Huy who controls the treasury, the military, and all construction and taxation—and perhaps most important, it is Huy who chooses the young pharaoh’s queen. His actions and premonitions, as well as his legendary past, make him very few friends and a great many enemies.

In The King’s Man, Huy’s rise to power and fame—as chronicled first in The Twice Born and then in Seer of Egypt—reaches its resounding climax.

With her meticulous research and compelling prose, Pauline Gedge transports readers into the ancient and fascinating culture that was Egypt.

Review:

"A mesmerizing tale of ambition, fate and wisdom.... The plot unfolds in stately fashion, with Gedge’s extensive knowledge of Egyptian culture on sumptuous display throughout.... Contemplative in its first half, more taut and dramatic in the second, it is a book to savour, a satisfying conclusion to an impressive and awe-inspiring trilogy." - The Globe and Mail
