"THE PHARAOH AWOKE WITH THE LIGHT of the full moon shining on his face, knowing that he had just spoken with his god. His god was named Apedemak, and in the temple renderings, he had the body of a man, but the face of the king of beasts. He was the high god of the people of Kerma, Pharaoh Taharka's island kingdom...an island hidden from the outside world behind a barrier of powerful spells, cloaked in fog and illusion, lying off the coast of the continent men now called Africa."The Price of Freedom (Pirates of the Caribbean) by A.C. Crispin
This book takes place during the time of young 25 year old Jack Sparrow. I haven't actually started it yet but I hope to start it today after I finish The Paper Garden.
