House of Rejoicing is Libbie Hawker’s long-awaited return to the lush decadence and dark power of ancient Egypt.
In the waning years of Egyptâ€™s Eighteenth Dynasty, when female power can only come at an unsettling price, four royal women struggle against the shadowy influence of Akhenaten, the infamous heretic Pharaoh. Akhenaten wields control of a strange, emerging religion unlike anything Egypt has seen. His power canâ€™t be denied, but whoever can maintain her grip on the unpredictable Pharaoh will hold all of Egypt in her handsâ€”and better still, will remain mistress of her own fate.
Tiy, once the undisputed might behind the throne, must choose to relinquish her hard-won influence, or manipulate the innocent in order to secure her hold on Akhenatenâ€™s leash. Kiya, an idealistic foreign princess, will win Akhenaten with loveâ€”if heâ€™s capable of feeling love at all. The celebrated beauty Nefertiti will use the Pharaoh for her own ends, turning the tables of a deadly political game to free herself from her ambitious fatherâ€™s grasp. And Sitamun, kept imprisoned as the Pharaohâ€™s plaything, will defy the gods themselves to save her daughter from a similar fate.
House of Rejoicing is the first part in Libbie Hawkerâ€™s new ancient Egyptian series, The Book of Coming Forth by Day. The story continues in Part Two, Storm in the Sky.
