Once the glory of Akhenaten’s reign, the imperial city lies tangled in the raveled ends of old plots, wrecked, abandoned and rumored to be accursed.
When Commander Khonsu is ordered to escort a royal delegation to the deserted capital to investigate reopening its quarries, he finds the assignment anything but routine, beginning with Lord Nebamun, the priest who commands the delegation. Nebamun is a man without a past who does not fear ghosts, curses or the spirits said to prowl the surrounding hills and scream in the night.
As Khonsu watches the man move through the undercurrents of old strife and treachery, he begins to suspect that Lord Nebamun has come to put the spirits of the city to rest, whatever the cost.
THE CITY OF REFUGE, the first book in THE MEMPHIS CYCLE, is a story of revenge and renewal, and one man’s discovery that the Paths of Righteousness may lie through peril, but they will always bring you home.
