Empire of Darkness/Jacq, Christia/Paper/0743449568/S018-C
Queen of Freedom Trilogy, Volume 1
Egypt. 17th century B.C. An army of barbarians has swept through the Empire, destroying everything in its path. Known as the Hyksos, the 'leaders from foreign lands', the invaders have reduced the land of the pharaohs to slavery.
Only one city resists: Thebes, where the widow of the last pharaoh, Teti the Small, still reigns. Teti knows it's only a matter of time before her men, too, succumb.
But Teti has a daughter. Fierce, beautiful and courageous, eighteen-year-old Ahhotep will never accept defeat. And so she decides to re-ignite the flame of Egyptian resistance - all by herself.
Combining historical fact with a vivid imagination, Christian Jacq tells the enthralling true story of this Ancient Egyptian warrior-heroine, without whom the Valley of the Kings and the glorious treasures of the pharaohs, including Ramses the Great, would never have existed.
