Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0812626672, Hardcover)

Resigned to her fate as consort of the god Amun, 14-year-old Princess Meret prepares to be confined in a temple for the rest of her life, with only a statue of the ugly goddess Taweret for company. Meanwhile, a young Greek soldier Hector determines to save her from that fate in the hopes of winning her love. And when the magical statue of the goddess disappears, it is the lowly shopsweeper Bata who finds it. When the three meet and join forces in a desperate race across the desert, they find that the very security of Egypt is at stake. Although only Bata knows the secret of the statue’s powers, the wry and long-suffering goddess uses all her wisdom and humor to guide the young people in their quest. With its fast-paced plot, exciting adventures and escapes, and hint of romance, the stories of these three very different young people who come together in ancient Egypt make this a book that appeals to boys and girls alike.
