A story of the Lost Army of Cambyses.
524 B.C., Thebes, Egypt.
King of Kings, Shahanshah Cambyses, is livid. The insolent and influential priests of Ammon have refused to recognize the Persian emperor as Pharaoh. Now, a detachment of fifty-thousand men is on the march to the distant town to burn the revered temple of the Oracle and enslave its people.
As the vast column marches in the desolate landscape, leaders plot for greater things: glory and governorship, title of Pharaoh, riches, and influence.
But one man seeks something else.
And soon, some are about to learn that the swirling sand of the desert is not the only thing in their path to plunder and glory.
