"In spite of his reverence for the crocodile Chebron did not hesitate a moment, but rushing forward smote the crocodile on the nose with all his strength with the shaft of his spear. The crocodile dropped its victim and turned upon its assailant…"
~ from the book
The Rebu were a courageous and strong people, but they were no match for the huge numbers of the Egyptian troops or their tactics. Now teenage Amuba, crown prince of the Rebu, finds himself a slave of the priest of Bubastes, a feline goddess in Thebes. Amuba learns much as he deals with the strange customs of his young master Chebron and of another enslaved people, the Hebrews. But things take a turn for the worse when one of Bubastes’ sacred cats ends up dead, and Amuba is forced to rely on his own wits to save himself and his friends.
