Xalia was old when the Pyramids were built. Xalia was a woman when Gaza was an untouched coastal plain. Xalia was a woman when Abraham left Ur of the Chaldees. She was not alone.

What of those who opposed her? Could Martin Slade resist the advances of a goddess? If not... what would happen to a man who was loved by an Immortal? What happened to those who tried to save him?
