Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A debut novel like no other- touches on the apocalyptic flavors of the times and tells of a history that transcends the past.

Why is the Arab world in turmoil? What instigated the Spring of Freedom?

There is more to the story than meets the eye...

The very fabric of the world is at stake.

And, believe it or not, your fate lies in the hands of one book-loving Egyptian teen with an extraordinary heritage .

Aya is an Egyptian teenage girl trying to mind her own business and take care of her brother. As their country is swept by the tides of a revolution against a tyrant nicknamed the vile pharaoh, Aya tries to stay adrift. But her blood has something different in store for her.

Learning what the Ancients have always known, She joins a battle for truth and freedom- a battle for Ma'at.

It is not just a story, however, it is a world-within-world, and a fresh tantalizing outlook on the events in our modern world.

This elegant novella is an introduction to a multi-volume series... The Battle for Maat.

Synopsis:

When Aya, a sixteen-year-old Egyptian girl, communicates with Ma'at, ancient Egyptian goddess of justice and truth, she opens the doors to an alternate reality where history and current events are not at all what they seem and ancient myths turn out to be more than just enigmatic legends.Ma'at is not the only Neteru around. The Neteru, an ancient pre-human race believed to be deities by their contemporaries, are an eclectic bunch. Some are good, some are bad, and some are just plain silly. But now, some are roaming our world under the guise of --well, only Aya can tell you that. Join Aya and her band of unlikely allies on a quest that will take you through the Ka river beaming with life energy, under the tunnels of the Sphinx and through ancient Egyptian sacred sites.
