More than anything, young Sentu wants to learn the new letters of Pharaoh Menes's court. The acolytes suffer under the tutelage of the High Priest: ritual sacrifices involve more than mere beasts, they involve anyone who stands in Hozat's way to ultimate power. Though Sentu is at first spared much of the darkest of Hozat's secrets, he soon realizes he cannot escape the fate of his ka forever.
