Author’s Summary

Khamsin, The Devil Wind of the Nile, is Book 1 of Inge H. Borg’s historical fiction series “Legends of the Winged Scarab.” It plays out during Egypt’s First Dynasty (3080 BC). However, this ancient saga has the suspense, action & adventure of a modern thriller.

Ramose, High Priest of Ptah, vies for control over his weak Horus-king Aha, second ruler of Egypt’s First Dynasty. So does the vile Vizier, Ebu al-Saqqara. Each man takes full advantage of the Two Lands’ warfare with the southern Noba reinforced by mercenaries from the Kush and Wawat tribes.

Caught in their dangerous intrigues is Nefret, Aha’s Royal Daughter and Heiress. Her forbidden love for the surgeon priest Tasar brings her not only into conflict with the powerful priesthood, but with the strict laws of ma’at, a transgression punishable by death.

As the khamsin rages over the Two Lands, those who seek to kill Princess Nefret are pitted against those who hope to save her.
