Once the glory of Akhenaten's reign, the imperial city lies tangled in the raveled ends of old plots, wrecked, abandoned and rumored to be accursed. When Commander Khonsu is ordered to escort a royal delegation to the deserted capital to investigate reopening its quarries, he finds the assignment anything but routine, beginning with Lord Nebamun, the priest who commands the delegation. Nebamun is a man without a past who does not fear ghosts, curses or the spirits said to prowl the surrounding hills and scream in the night.
As Khonsu watches the man move through the undercurrents of old strife and treachery, he begins to suspect that Lord Nebamun has come to put the spirits of the city to rest once and for all, whatever the cost.
The first book of The Memphis Cycle, The City of Refuge is a story of revenge and renewal, and one man's discovery that the Paths of Righteousness may lie through peril, but they will always bring you home.

The City of Refuge is the first novel in The Memphis Cycle. The first books were written out of order and stood alone, but as time passed and more stories came, the common features - the families involved, the histories - held them together. And so The Memphis Cycle began. Now the cycle comprises four published works. There are others in line. Further details are available on my website, dianawilderauthor.comAbout the Author:
Diana Wilder grew up in a military family that traveled throughout the United States and spent generations in the orient. The constant travel honed her love for people-watching and gave her plenty of material for stories, whether set in the present or in the distant past. She has published four novels set in ancient Egypt, one set in the American Civil War, and another, writing as Anne Shaughnessy, set in Paris. Currently, she is working on Kadesh, a sequel to Mourningtide, as well as another Civil War story. In between working on those stories, she is polishing a novel in two parts set in France of the 1830's and two non-magical fantasy novels. When she isn't writing, Diana is showing cats, working in graphic design and trying to knit.
