Conquered by the army of the Pharaoh Thutmose III, Amuba and his tribe are enslaved. Along with his trusted charioteer, Jethro, Amuba must serve in Egypt. While there, Amuba builds a strong bond with Chebron, the son of the High Priest of Osiris. When Chebron's life is threatened, Amuba and Jethro must help him escape and, in the process, find a way to return to their beloved home on the western coast of the Caspian Sea. Will Chebron's life be spared? Will Amuba and Jethro ever make it home again? Will Moses make an appearance in this tale of Egypt? Read on and discover the answers to these questions and much more.
