A small extragalactic meteorite found by an ancient Egyptian peasant becomes an object of worship, mystery and intrigue as it passes through all of human history. Transformed into an amulet, it was worn by both kings and peasants alike.
The first volume of Amulet of the Ka begins with the creation of our solar system, the arrival of the meteorite in 10,000 BCE, to a pharaoh in the Egyptian 18th dynasty and continues through the earliest years of the common era with a General of imperial Rome. Both cherished and reviled, its unusual symmetry attracts the powerful to the commoner yielding understanding or effecting chaos. Whether the stone has the power to gather the essence of the living, or its beauty simply stimulates the human imagination is a question for scientists and philosophers, but one thing is certain ... it is not what it seems.
