In the harsh, dusty landscape of the desert there lies, sprawled across the horizon, a temple dedicated to the Goddess Lithenia. Therein dwell a mysterious warrior cult, who guard a dark secret with their lives. Hammal, cousin of the mad King Amman, arrives penniless and exiled on their stone steps and pledges his life to their service. He barely understands the commitment he must make until he is appointed a quest which he cannot refuse. After pledging his life to the service of Lithenia, Hammal finds himself caught in the middle of a raging battle between the Gods, and it seems that only he stands between the world and total oblivion.
