Vessels by Rachael Dunn
An ancient Egyptian-inspired fantasy adventure from Rachael Dunn.
Ashira can heal with a touch and command the dead. And she would like her kingdom back.
After all, she is the reincarnation of the legendary pharaoh Nephtet-Ka. It’s hers by rights. The prophecy said so after all.
But she will find that an empire won’t just hand over power, even if she unleashes an army of reanimated corpses on those who stand in her way.
Fleeing an empire that wants her dead, she will have to cross the desert and seek out new allies and counsel from the ancient priest who started the prophecy. Her only ally is Mwarthes, a sly assassin who speaks with serpents and lets his curiosity get the better of him. Will he help her reclaim her crown from the Alvari empire?
Or will she end up another corpse in the desert?
