The very first volume in the reader-acclaimed, Amazon bestselling She-King series, a legend of ancient Egypt's many remarkable royal family.
< br/ >< br/ > Is Ahmose's divine present a true blessing or a curse?
< br/ >< br/ > The 2nd daughter of the Pharaoh, Ahmose has always imagined a quiet life as a priestess, serving Egypt's gods, ministering to individuals of the 2 Lands. When the Pharaoh dies without a successor, she is offered rather as Excellent Royal Better half to the new king-- a soldier of common birth. For Ahmose is god-chosen, gifted with the ability to check out dreams, and it is her connection to the gods which guarantees the new Pharaoh his right to rule.
< br/ >< br/ > Ahmose's elder sibling Mutnofret has been raised to expect the fortunate station of Great Royal Better half; her rage at being displaced can not be soothed. As Ahmose fights the currents of Egypt's politics and Mutnofret's vengeful anger, her youth and lack of experience bring her beyond her depth and into the realm of sacrilege.
< br/ >< br/ > To right her wrongs and save Egypt from the gods' rage, Ahmose has to face her most visceral worry: bearing a successor. However the gods of Egypt are exacting, as well as her sacrifice might not suffice to bring back the 2 Lands to safety.
< br/ >< br/ > The Sekhmet Bed is the very first volume of Libbie Hawker's series The She-King, a household legend of the Thutmosides, among ancient Egypt's many remarkable royal households. Do not miss Book 2: The Criminal and Flail
