In this riveting series finale, Tesio, the prophesied child of two ancient Egyptian deities, has recovered his mother's body from the Louvre and wrested the fourth canopic jar from the convent at Monsarmat, leaving a bloody trail of corpses in his wake. Only one man stands any chance of stopping his mad rise to power: his half-brother Cassio. But since Tesio's poison has stripped him of his immortality, Cassio's going to need a lot of help. From the beautiful young archeologist Ornella Grazzi; from his recently resurrected mother, the goddess Armahl; and from the unlikeliest of sources: his mortal enemy, the monstrous Reptah.

Once she's freed, she joins a plot to take down the very emperor Cassio is trying to save. But Cassio isn't all alone. He's reunited with an old flame, the Apis priestess Oasis.
