An ancient text has corrupted the mind of King Ninus, Babylon 3000 BC. At the peak of his rulership, there is one power he desires above all else, but it is not yet in his control, and his symbol of conquest lies incomplete.
A man has been seriously injured and is without any memory of who he is. The woman who finds him saves his life and hides him from the king until he has fully recovered and can start to retrace his steps. But as Rihat’s memory starts to release his name and fragments of his life, he becomes once again embroiled in the past, thereby putting her into great danger. Because, like him, she is compromised by a destiny beyond her own will, and like him, she is not free to follow the calling of her own heart.
When he eventually re-lives the agony of who he is and why he has become that way, he is forced into choices that will affect both past and future.
