Two boys discover their historical roots the hard way. Dominic and Sebastian are two twelve-year-old boys living on a hilly point of a bush-clad land in Coromandel, New Zealand. The land is abundant with wildlife and fruit orchards. When a strange circular shape mysteriously appears in a local maize field, Dom and Seb investigate. But something terribly powerful occurs, and the boys vanish into thin air. They find themselves not only on the other side of the planet but also over three thousand years back in time! Egypt, the superpower of the ancient world for ten centuries, is in disarray. On the brink of invasion by the Hittites, the rebel Amarna king has begun his journey in the afterlife, leaving his son, a twelve-year-old boy to be crowned as pharaoh of all Egypt. But he has also vanished. Can Dominic and Sebastian prevent political assassination and survive the perils of ancient Egypt? Will they ever get home? Find out in this adventurous, action packed first edition.
