Known as the Veiled One, the ugly and deformed Akenhaten is a shadowy figure.
As a child he is overlooked and despised by his own father.
As an adult he is thrust into the political limelight when his elder brother dies.
Mahu, ambitious and ruthless, watches the young prince carve his own path to power.
He becomes Akenhaten's alter ego, his protector and confidant, standing by as Akenhaten proclaims that there is only one God, the Aten, and that he, Akenhaten, is that God's only son.
Revolution and chaos follow in this dramatic reign filled with fraud, abduction, assassination, betrayal and treachery.
But when Mahu becomes suspicious of Akenhaten's majestic and glorious wife Nefertiti, and the political skill of her brother, Ay, it seems that a hidden and malign influence may also be at work. And then Akenhaten disappears...
