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.
