Published by AuthorHouseBooks
Whispers of the Gods explores the complex lives of real characters in history. Set in 18th Dynasty Egypt at the time of Pharaoh Tutmoses II and Queen Hatshepsut, it follows the challenges faced by High Priestess Anas, the Divine Seeress who serves the Queen. An ambitious and able woman, Hatshepsut seeks power at any cost. Aided by her Grand Vizier Senenmet she determines to alter fate to her advantage, believing she is blessed by the God Amun to rule. This knowledge brings Anas into conflict with the Queen and Senenmet when the Pharaoh dies, for he has left a young son by a minor wife to follow him on the throne. Hatshepsut becomes Regent and her first act is to banish the boy to the Karnak temple where he remains for many years. The Queen rules successfully and with Senenmet’s help even takes the title of Pharaoh. Meanwhile, despite threats to her life and exclusion from court, Anas continues to protect the boy king, known as Amun-Ra, as instructed by the gods of Egypt. Hatshepsut is to discover her stepson’s determination matches her own when he comes of age and demands equal rule. The years in waiting have taught Tutmoses great patience, with a total belief in his sacred destiny. In time he will prove the most magnificent soldier Egypt ever produced, yet his greatest battle is deeply personal. Guided by Anas and God Amun, he fights to regain his birthright and to achieve the ultimate defeat of the hated Senenmet and the Pharaoh Queen. The metaphysical traditions of the temple life and human passions are vital ingredients in this epic tale of triumph over adversity. Keywords: Amun; Karnak; Hatshepsut; female pharaoh; Tutmoses III; Thutmose III; Senenmet; Senmut; Thebes; New Kingdom; 18th Dynasty; Gods of Egypt
