Raised by thieves in the streets of ancient
Egypt, seventeen-year-old Hamet has
successfully made a respectable life and name
for himself in the palace of Pharaoh Seti I,
who rescued the young man from the
clutches of vicious Libyans during a time of
war. Hamet daily performs the duty of wash
boy, bathing and grooming the aging Seti.
He lives in the servants’ quarters with Keati,
his beloved wife, and under the control of
Throut, the Pharaoh’s gruff vizier and
highest governing official.
When Keati is brutally murdered, Hamet
never expects a swift, but necessary alliance
that forms between himself and Ramses, the
Pharaoh’s visionary son and co-ruler of
Egypt. Together this unlikely pair must race
against time to unravel the evil deeds of
Throut and save their civilization from the
tyrants aimed at destroying it. Along the
way, Hamet discovers that honor and
bravery are born in the heart and not in a
family’s lineage. Even a simple wash boy can
possess the gifts it takes to overthrow evil
and save his king and country.
The Gift of Sun: Hamet’s Awakening Book 1 is a wonderful read. I
very much look forward to reading Book 2, which I hope is in the works.
This world Ms. Ward has created, and the original characters she’s placed
in it, are far too ingenious to leave behind. I loved this book.
