About the Book

A young, Egyptian prince finds a hidden room deep within the temple of Amun. A mysterious message has been preserved there and the boy sets out to learn of its meaning. Discovering the hieroglyphs are connected to the Hebrew people currently conquering the inhabitants of Canaan, the prince decides, once he is pharaoh, he will change Egypt’s temples to align with his new-found faith. Joined in this quest by his beautiful bride, Nefertiti, Akhenaten uproots the capital to a new site in Amarna and only allows his citizens to worship the Aten. But the leaders of Egypt and the priests of Amun vie for control of the ancient kingdom on the Nile. Eliminating the heretic pharaoh becomes their chief goal. Once a new, boy king, Tutankhamun, is on the throne, the power of Egypt can be reversed and once again rest in their hands! The Heretic Pharaoh uncovers hidden events that connect loyal king Tutankhamun and Akhenaten, the renegade pharaoh that turned Egypt’s world upside down.

About the Author

Victoria W. Spencer has loved history all her life. The Bible and ancient Egypt have always held a special fascination for her. As a teenager, she was able to see the Treasures of Tutankhamun in Chicago in 1977. Years later, on a mission’s trip in Egypt, she and her family were blessed to visit the pyramids and see Tutankhamun’s treasures again in Cairo! She has taken these experiences, and her passion for storytelling to combine and interpret historic people and biblical events. The Heretic Pharaoh is her second novel, sequel to The Shepherd Kings.
