As a princess and daughter of the great Pharaoh Akhenaten, Ankhesenpaaten knows she is intended for an important marriage. But as the Asiatic Plague takes her mother and one of her sisters, and childbirth steals two other sisters, she finds herself in a position she never expected: Queen of Egypt.
The new pharaoh's advisors fear Ankhesenpaaten's remaining sisters might be used by a competing political faction wanting to steal the throne. With Intef, her new captain, at her side, Ankhesenpaaten is advised to deal with the "problem" of her younger sisters.
As long as more than one daughter of Akhenaten is alive, Ankhesenpaaten is disposable.
