More than anything, young Sentu wants to learn the new letters of Pharaoh Menes’s court. Born of lowly fellahin stock, he believes his acceptance into the priesthood for study must surely be a miracle of his ka–only those borne of a higher caste are afforded such privilege.
Or so he believes.
He soon learns that not all is as holy as it appears in the privileged world of scribes and priests .
The acolytes suffer under the tutelage of Hozat, 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.
When Pharaoh conquers Nubia and takes hostage that land’s powerful sorceress, Sentu’s own world crashes around him, and he has to discover whether justice is more important than forgiveness.
Formed of Clay transports the reader into an ancient world rich with mythology, betrayal, and sacrifice.
