Priestess of the Lost Colony (Alternate History/Magical Realism) (1 Viewer)


Senior Member
This is a little novel I wrote that is set in an alternate timeline wherein the ancient Egyptians colonized Greece during the Bronze Age. It combines elements of the alternate history, fantasy, and magical realism genres. It is being published by Open Books Press, and you can preorder your copy from them now (it will be released on April 27th of 2021)!

A headstrong Egyptian priestess, her brother, their sacked colony — and a rescue mission. When Itawaret’s beloved Per-Pehu falls to the tyrannical Scylax, she and her brother Bek lead a mission to save her captured people and depose Scylax. Along the way, they run into all kind of perils, friends and foes — and beasts sent by an angry goddess. Set in ancient Greece 3,500 years ago, this is a tale blending magical realism with history, high adventure with discovery… and Itawaret’s determination to save her people while learning her heart’s desires and realizing her deeper purpose.
