Commissioned by the pharaoh to fashion pyramids, temples, tombs, sculptures, and paintings for the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens, a select brotherhood of craftsmen dwell in a remote, self-sufficient desert village dubbed the Place of Truth.Determined to unlock the secrets of the Place of Truth and claim the powerful and closely guarded Stone of Light as his own, Mehy, a disgruntled military officer previously rejected for membership in the mystic brotherhood, hatches an insidious plot that threatens both the sanctity of the enclave and the life of the pharaoh.Joining forces to thwart Mehy are Nefer, the son of one of the village elders, and Ardent, a talented would-be craftsman dissatisfied with his lot as the son of a farmer. Another vivid portrait of ancient Egypt, teeming with intrigue, passion, and suspense.
