With her father still mourning the death of her long-gone mother, Nile has spent her life in the exile of her loneliness. When she travels to Egypt to study Physics, a mishap with white holes and motorboats renders her half-dead. Stranded in a multiverse, she’s thrust into the arms of Arem, a young Pharaoh in a far-away world. He takes her back to his kingdom and agrees to help her find her way home –but Nile is not eager to accept the assistance of an overconfident emperor; she can fend for herself! And yet, the more she learns about Arem’s culture, the more she wants to stay. Arem’s realm is beautiful and welcoming, and for the first time in her life, she finds a home.
Suspicious of Nile and Arem’s bond, Arem’s betrothed enlists the help of Raeki, a feared universe jumper, to get rid of Nile. Raeki is charming, Machiavellian, and his motivations are questionable. But when Raeki discovers Nile is also a universe jumper, he sees her for what she really is: an equal. He offers Nile a chance to join him in his intentions to take over Arem’s realm, and if there’s something Nile loves more than anything, that’s power, a chance to leave an unprecedented mark in History.
In this game of queens and kings, Nile must choose between saving the planet that feels like home, or accepting her power, no matter who she destroys in the process.
NILE is a YA Fantasy novel complete at 98,000 words. It stands alone but has series potential. NILE will appeal to readers who enjoyed Sabaa Tahir’s AN EMBER IN THE ASHES, Sarah J. Mass’ THRONE OF GLASS, or the unreliable narrator in Pierce Brown’s RED RISING.
Born and raised in Spain (Spanish-Mediterranean), I’m a Film and Media graduate, as well as a student at the Lee Strasberg Theater & Film Institute. NILE is my fourth book in the Fantasy genre, although I’ve also completed a Thriller and a full-length script. “Los Niños Sin Nombre” won the Memorial Fuencisla Award in 2009, and “The Rose and the Beast” has just been published in Work in Progress, the newspaper of the University College of London.
