“An impressively ingenious reframing of the chaotic domino effect caused by King Tut’s death & the tantalizing possibility of his line’s survival.”
Did the Amarna line really end with King Tut’s Death?
Ancient Egypt: 1324 BC
The last living male descendant of the Amarna line, Pharaoh Tutankhamun, has died suddenly under mysterious circumstances. His wife, Queen Ankhesenamun, is left without a male heir. The ambitious vipers, Ay and Horemheb, are nipping at her heels in their bid to seize power.
Queen Ankhe has but one hope to maintain her hold on the throne—an alliance with the Hittites. With Ay and Horemheb watching her every move, there is only one person she can trust to save her and her line—a girl, a slave—Ida.
Amarna is a historical drama set in Ancient Egypt, Hattusa & Syria that was inspired by the strange but true events surrounding the battle for the throne of Egypt following Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s death and the interconnected events that took place in the Hittite empire.
It includes an end matter feature that details what did and didn’t really happen (at least as far as historians believed at the time it was written).
