The boy's mother acts as regent, but she has brought to court the renowned seer, Huy, son of a humble farmer, to be scribe and counsel to her royal son. It's a position of power and responsibility--one fraught with intrigue and the lure of corruption. For it is Huy who controls the treasury, the military, all construction, and taxation--and perhaps most important, it's his task to choose the young Pharaoh's queen. His actions and premonitions, as well as his legendary past, make him very few friends and a great many enemies. The king's man continues the story of Huy--first seen in The twice born and Seer of Egypt--and his rise to power and fame. With her meticulous research and compelling prose, Pauline Gedge immerses readers in the ancient and fascinating culture that was Egypt
