The Chamber of Eternity is said to contain a hieroglyphic code to the future, the meaning of life and the secrets of immortality. For thousands of years its site has been fiercely guarded, its existence defended by preposterous rumours and outright lies. Learning of the mysterious vault, Napoleon Bonaparte launches an expedition to Egypt to locate the Chamber. When its extraordinary secrets are revealed to him in the heart of the Great Pyramid, he returns to Paris and swiftly becomes Emperor of France. Forty years later Queen Victoria becomes infatuated with the legend and recruits Alexander Rhind, a modest young Scot, to infiltrate a secretive cabal of archaeologists known as the 'Brotherhood of Eternity'. But when Rhind himself is seduced by the mystery, he is compelled to undertake his own expedition to Egypt to uncover the truth. With its cast of emperors, popes, queens, generals, sheikhs, artists and archaeologists - every one of them real - The Empire of Eternity is a spellbinding novel about the wonders of Egypt, the secrets of the gods, and man's desire to achieve immortality at all costs. By turns awesome and intimate, its revelations endure far beyond the final page.
