As a plague spreads over Egypt, Neferure finds herself stranded in the turmoil surrounding death. A promise has been silenced; a piece of her heart torn away; and the High Priest of Karnak Temple has just been entombed. In the wake of her loss, Neferure alone will hunt to uncover answers, and will unveil a sinister plot threatening all of Egypt - one that reaches into the realm of the gods.
