Narmer and the God Beast by JD Weber
“Had I anything in my heart but hate for my brother and pity for myself . . . I may have suspected I was about to meet a god.” Broken and bleeding into the cool Nile waters – shattered by his brother’s cruelty – young Narmer pays the crocodile no heed as it enters the stream. Let it come. But the hunter swims on, and only then does Narmer know its aim, the defenseless god-beast drinking and playing up-river. Dinosaurs will again roam the desert sands, uniting the disparate Two Lands into one great Egypt, if Narmer can drive off the crocodile, if he can endure his brother’s malice. If he can save this sacred creature and be saved by it . . .
