About this ebook

The first book in the Treasures of the Nile series
Anippe has grown up in the shadows of Egypt’s good god Pharaoh, aware that Anubis, god of the afterlife, may take her--or her siblings--at any moment. She watched him snatch her mother and infant brother during childbirth, a moment which awakens in her a terrible dread of ever bearing a child. When she learns that she is to be become the bride of Sebak, a kind but quick-tempered Captain of Pharaoh Tut’s army, Anippe launches a series of deceptions with the help of the Hebrew midwives—women ordered by Tut to drown the sons of their own people in the Nile—in order to provide Sebak the heir he deserves and yet protect herself from the underworld gods.

When she finds a baby floating in a basket on the great river, Anippe believes Egypt’s gods have answered her pleas, entrenching her more deeply in deception and placing her and her son Mehy, whom handmaiden Miriam calls Moses, in mortal danger. As bloodshed and savage politics shift the balance of power in Egypt, the gods reveal their fickle natures and Anippe wonders if her son, a boy of Hebrew blood, could one day become king. Or does the god of her Hebrew servants, the one they call El Shaddai, have a different plan for them all?

So many concepts are accepted confusions and names are so similar it the story can be difficult to follow. A more exacting flow of the story plot would have enhanced this story immensely.

So, this is basically a prologue to Exodus. It's a story I've always loved as a child, so it was pretty much 'predictable' so to speak. But I love the different angle and how the author approached it. I've heard of these Egyptian Pharoahs before but never read about their lives thouroughly. I love how the author flawlessly connected the lives of this influencial people and made the fiction believable. Love the author's note at the end!

I loved this story. The characters seemed to transport me back yo a time of history where God was present even when it seemed hopeless and it gave me a clear look into how ruthless Egyptians could be.
