This novel is a prequel. Murder in the Black Land is just the beginning. The story concludes with Our Lady of the Absolute.

Ancient Egypt meets our modern world.

How do you choose between love of your family and love of your country?

Queen Angelique is caught in a quandary. She has ruled The Black Land since the death of her husband, the pharaoh. She defied tradition by refusing to name her son Penaware as the next pharaoh, even though everyone knows he was too young and immature to rule.

Time is running out. Prince Penaware’s approaching birthday means he’ll come of age soon. The nation and the powerful priests who strongly influence it expect Angelique to proclaim Penaware the new pharaoh.

But there’s another option. She could break tradition once more and claim the title of pharaoh for herself. It’s never been done in modern times, and the priests will protest.

Queen Angelique loves her son and wants him to succeed. She also loves her country and worries his ineptitude might destroy it.

There’s one more problem: the royal magician warns of a premonition that someone plots to murder the next pharaoh.

Should Angelique believe it? If she doesn’t, will she put her son’s life or her own at risk?

This modern-day novel is Inspired by historical events and the mythology of ancient Egypt.
