Before the sands of the Nile were ever seen by the great-grandfathers of the great-grandfathers of the men who built the pyramids, there rose a great civilization, whose history became the fodder of some of the greatest myths known. Although sands overtake all of the grandeur that man makes, their actions-from love to treachery-live on. Outside the rise of modern civilization lived a woman named Tella, beautiful and primitive. A fluke brings the two worlds of the time, one savage and one sophisticated, crashing together. Enkara, a ruthless ruler from a world Tella can't even imagine, takes her as his princess. Her destiny is sealed. One day she will be the queen of a kingdom she has never seen, a place she never knew existed. The control the blood-thirsty Enkara holds over his world is shaken when his softer, more just brother, Kiffia, joins him at his outpost camp. What follows is the stuff of legends; stories and actions which the idea of sin is based on.
