Synopsis: Antonio Cabana’s masterful writing brings us close to a unique historical period: when Ancient Egypt succumbs before the onslaught of a new order ready to devour their millenary Gods.
In the midst of this mayhem is Amosis. Through his life, the reader will travel across the convulsive years in which the three great classical civilizations, decadent Egypt, Greece and the emerging Rome, turn the Mediterranean into a fascinating crucible.
His odyssey will take us from Upper Egypt till the faraway Nubian deserts, and from Alexandria till the bathed islands of the Aegean.
Accompanied by extraordinary characters such as the slave Abdú, the fascinating Circe or the bookseller Theophrastus, he will have to face the worst and best of humankind: excessive ambition, the thirst for power, treason, true friendship and the renewing power of love.
