Call of Anubis
by Steve Anaba
She's spent years working as a scribe in the pharaoh's bureaucracy, but the good paycheck is all that keeps her there. The work can be tedious, and romance feels impossible since most men are scared away by the idea of an independant and educated woman.
Things change the day she recives a letter from her old friend and mentor, Gerhas, the High Priest of Anubis. He's invited her to meet with a mysterious patron in search of an assistant. Sehri humors the old man and shows up on the appointed day, half expecting the whole offer to be a prank.
What she discovered that day shook her world: the gods were very real, and far from distant or uncaring.
Anubis, despite his bestial appearance, makes Sehri feel different, like some thread of fate is trying to bind them together. Even so, she isn't sure she's ready to step into the politics of gods and monsters.
Perhaps Anubis is the man she's been looking for her whole life, or is she the only woman who can soothe his old wounds?
This story contains a strong, independant scribe who don't need no man (but having one would be nice), a black-furred Ancient Egyptian deity in need of a vacation, and descriptive scenes of their passionate moments together.
Mature readers only.
