The new kingdom is about a boy named Hui and he lives a wonderful life and his father is the ruler of Egypt. His stepmother and his brother plot against them and take over the city. It makes him have to flee for his life and go into hiding. He meets a band of outlaws and joins them! There he learns to fight and defend himself. Soon he finds himself in an even greater war! The heart of Egypt and he wants to take it Back and destroy the people that betrayed him! This was action packed and a new take on historical fiction! It was very detailed and the author did a good job about the details of Egypt and the people that are in the book! The main character definitely grows throughout the book and is very interesting as well! I highly recommend this one to any that love adventure and history swept into one book! The cover is also very interesting too! I liked this one!
