The joyous birth of Nefret, Royal Daughter of Ancient Egypt’s First Dynasty, is overshadowed by her mother’s death, and King Aha’s suspicion he may not have fathered her.
The education of the young princess is left to Ramose, High Priest of Ptah, who vies for control over his weak Horus-King—as does the vile Vizier. Each man takes full advantage of the Two Lands’ warfare with its southern neighbors.
Nefret becomes the prized pawn in their dangerous court intrigues. Her forbidden love for the surgeon priest Tasar, and a deadly feud with her half-brother, thrusts her into conflict with the powerful priesthood as well as the strict laws of ma’at, a transgression punishable by death. As the khamsin rages over the Two Lands, the many who seek to kill the Royal Heiress are pitted against the few who hope to save her.
Khamsin, The Devil Wind of the Nile, A Novel of Ancient Egypt, is Book 1 of Inge H. Borg’s historical fiction 5-volume series “Legends of the Winged Scarab.” It plays out during Egypt’s First Dynasty (3080 BC).
