River God Summary

At the festival of Osiris, loyal subjects of the pharaoh gather to pay homage to their leader. Only Taita, a wise and formidably gifted enunch slave, sees him as a symbol of the kingdom's fading glory.

Danger surounds all those who oppose the ruling elite. But together with his protégés, Lostris, the beautiful 14-year-old daughter of his master Lord Intef, and the proud young army officer Tanus, Taita begins the long and dangerous journey towards his own glorious dream: to restore the majesty of the Pharaoh of Pharaohs on the glittering banks of the nile.

    Hidden away in the deserts of North Africa, Taita has passed the years since the death of his beloved Queen Lostris in prayer and study. He has become the Warlock, wise in the lore of the gods, an adept of magic and the supernatural. Now Taita answers the summons from the beyond. He returns to the world of men to find himself plunged into a conflict against the forces of evil that threaten to overwhelm the throne of Egypt, and to destroy the young prince Nefer, who is the grandson of Queen Lostris.
