Forced to leave his clan and his children behind, Ishtar staggers into a vast wilderness and encounters a desert nomad who loves him as a son. When foreign raiders approach, Ishtar must discover if he can move beyond madness, protect his people, and reclaim his family.
Eager to know the source of Ishtar’s strength, a watching Universe must learn if humanity can save them from a spreading darkness.
One extended family traverses the course of history through Aram, Ishtar, and Neb in a world of wild beasts, craven spirits, and noble souls. Generations later, in the first century AD, Aram’s descendant, Georgios battles a world of dark secrets, deceptive promises, and hope renewed.
Four hundred years later, Georgios’ descendant, Melchior, discovers that his vengeance is not as powerful as God’s plans.
