Publisher Description

----- Synopsis ----- 

Ancient Sumeria, 1750 BC: Sixteen-year-old Eliana is passionate, determined, stubborn, and has a strong sense of family and duty. As daughter of the city governor, she wants only to emulate her father and work to make her city, Nippur, a better place for its people. 


Crown Prince Samsu of Babylon, a man known for his ruthlessness and cruelty, conquers Nippur and installs himself as its ruler. His search for a concubine leads him straight to Eliana’s beloved sister. When Kisha is taken away, Eliana is devastated, thinking she’ll never see her sister again. 


Eliana risks her life to sneak into the dreaded Red Palace and see her sister, but things don’t go according to plan. Samsu, intrigued by her courage, takes her into slavery, determined to break her spirit and teach her a woman’s place. But Eliana will not break easily, and Samsu underestimates how far she will go to protect her loved ones. 


In a brutal environment where women are expendable and the Prince’s power is absolute, Eliana must negotiate a careful path between pleasing Samsu, avoiding the wrath of his wife, keeping her family safe and staying true to herself. Her life, and the lives of everyone she loves, could depend on it. 


This gripping story about love, loyalty, family and courage in the face of oppression will have you hooked from beginning to end.
