Rashan is finally able to reunite with his father, Anhur. He'd thought his father had died in a boating accident when he was a boy. Rashan now fully knows that his father has always been an Egyptian immortal-the pantheon's god of war.
And Rashan learns much more. More about his own origin. More about an ancient god, Menthu, whose powers he has inherited. More about the Ta-Djesart. More about various characters that he'd previously considered fables. More about this pantheon's endless politicking. And more about plans to kill him.
