Formed of Clay by thea atkinson
Betrayal will cost you your soul
More than anything, young Sentu wants to learn the new letters of Pharaoh Menes's court. No one of his caste in this ancient civilization learns the language of hieroglyphics, and so, born of lowly stock, his acceptance into the Egyptian priesthood must surely be a miracle.
He soon learns that not all is as holy as it appears in the privileged world of scribes and priests. Black magics and malice abound in the court of the first pharaoh of ancient Egypt, and Book of the Dead theology is twisted into an avenue for personal gain.
The acolytes suffer under the tutelage of Hozat, the High Priest: ritual sacrifices involve more than mere beasts, they involve anyone who stands in Hozat's way to ultimate power. Though Sentu is at first spared much of the darkest of Hozat's secrets, he soon realizes he cannot escape the fate of his
When Pharaoh invades Nubia and takes hostage that land's powerful sorceress, Sentu's own world crashes around him, and he has to discover whether justice is more important to him than forgiveness.
Formed of Clay is historical fantasy that transports the reader into a dark exploration of a world before the pyramids in a time rich with mythology, betrayal, and sacrifice.
About The Author...
The first thing you should know about me is I'm a Canuck--and one from the Maritimes where the water means almost everything to the people who live here. It shows up in my fiction a lot.
I have a dog. I wish I had three or four. I love dogs.
Some of my earliest memories are my fondest: like when my older brother put snakes in my rubber boots and I felt them slithering up my ankle when I put one on to go outside to play. Or when my younger brother pilfered every bit of babysitting money I'd hidden until I discovered the only safe hiding place for money was in the pages of a book. Or when my baby brother somehow got into my Dad's wine and threw up in the bathtub. Ah. The life of a sister. Those boys have given me some memorable images to take with me into old age.
Can I help it then, if bits and pieces of these also characters show up in my fiction in some way or other?
I tend towards literary fiction--or at least I try to. My agent thinks I write dark, and one day we'll find the perfect match of story and darkness to make us both happy.
I've been fortunate enough to write for money, but I prefer writing for passion. I've published throughout the US, the UK, and my home country of Canada in various lit journals, but I'm a novelist at heart.
