The Stone of Light: Nefer the Silent

by Christian Jacq

A novel in the epic tradition where our hero strives, and is tested and thwarted at every turn, to achieve his ambition. A tale of plots and intrigue amongst those who would influence and preserve the traditions of Egypt and Mighty Pharoah.


A strange fire burns within that boy, and it disturbs you, you who love only insipid people! It's quite true that he's no ordinary craftsman, subservient to his overseer, incapable of thinking and so dull that nobody notices him. If we admit him to our ranks we run the risk of seeing a storm rage through the village and destroy many of our customs.
