Isis Wept Stephan by Michael Loy
Realtime Price: £3.28
Egypt, 8000 years ago. The gods walk among men as titans, powerful beings with passions that move mountains, fix stars in the heavens, and master the forces of life and death. Within this world, the evil god Set betrays and murders his brother Osiris, king of rich and respected Abydos. Set steals all that Osiris had, including the queen, Isis, the goddess of life and beauty. Isis escapes her monstrous conqueror and bends her powers toward finding her love and bringing him back from death. But, like all gods, Isis is trapped despite her power, for she can never go beyond the limits of her nature. For that, she needs the assistance of man.
In the course of this quest, kingdoms fall, armies clash, and the balance of power between gods and men is altered forever. Who holds power in such cataclysmic conflict? Is it those who define power, or those who define themselves?
