Publisher Summary
A Newbery Honor Book

Winner of a Newbery Honor, an exciting ancient Egyptian mystery!


Ranofer wants only one thing in the world: to be a master goldsmith like his beloved father was. But how can he when he is all but imprisoned by his evil half brother, Gebu? Ranofer knows the only way he can escape Gebu's abuse is by changing his destiny. But can a poor boy with no skills survive on the cutthroat streets of ancient Thebes? Then Ranofer finds a priceless golden goblet in Gebu's room and he knows his luck−and his destiny−are about to change.

"Exceptionally vivid, swiftpaced, and stirring."—The Horn Book

"An exhilarating story of the arduous fulfillment of a boy's dream . . . We are given a most worthy hero in Ranofer, one who struggles with his own fears and ideals, who smarts under his own cowardice, but who finds the power to rise to his own strength. This plus the vividly detailed setting make the book an excellent choice."—Kirkus Reviews


A young Egyptian boy struggles to reveal a hideous crime and reshape his own destiny.
