ABOUT C.M.T. Stibbe

C.M.T. Stibbe
Claire Stibbe was brought up in Norfolk, England and educated on the myths and legends of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. She comes from a family of writers and is the twin sister of bestselling author, Mark Stibbe. She has written two historical fantasy novels, CHASING PHARAOHS and THE FO More...



When a band of Alodian outcasts crosses the border to Egypt, Pharaoh Kheper-Re invites them to compete in a grueling chariot race across the western desert against his bodyguard, Commander Shenq. The prize is great; the winner will be awarded the title of Supreme Commander of Thebes.

Determined to win, Commander Shenq and his team enter the race confronting the most brutal of obstacles. Not only must they beat the Alodians, they must also triumph over the punishing terrain, the savage desert jackals, and above all the Imazi, a group of flesh-eating nomads.

With so much at stake, treachery and sorcery are once again in season as the princes of two rival kingdoms go head-to-head. It is a race that will cost the loser everything he holds dear.

With a leaner, cleaner style of writing, the rich mythology of  CMT Stibbe's world grips us right from the outset. Already we have a sympathetic protagonist and a clear story arc in the first chapter - already we're looking forward to where  the story will take us.

Written historically with the knowledge of an archeologist and the passion of a troubadour, readers will be bound by the spell that C.M.T. Stibbe weaves from the very first page.

John Breeden II, Author of Old Number Seven

The author is well versed in historical fiction and is able to call upon a wealth of self-gained knowledge of ancient Egypt, the subject as huge as the land base it represents. I do love this book for the way it's written.

Neville Kent, Author of The Secrets of the Forest Series and One Off, Sir!

The author's research is excellent. Her description verges on the poetic and is in keeping with the superstitious and spiritual culture she invokes. A very powerful and poetic piece of literature.

Karen Charlton, Author of The Heiress of Linn Hagh and Catching the Eagle.
