It was an autumn day, in the year 4000BC, when I set out to wage war upon my grandfather.
Now is the time of the gods of war.
Inanna and Ninshubar sail south to take their revenge upon Enki, the king of the water gods. Armed with the master mee and struggling to understand its true nature, Inanna will face impossible demons in her quest to fully comprehend the power she has inherited.
Gilgamesh, soon to be crowned King of Uruk, travels north to fetch his wife and baby, only to find his homelands in flames and his family on the run. A blood-red moon carries warnings of a new kind of war.
Meanwhile Ereshkigal, queen of the underworld, has a mysterious visitor. This dark stranger brings with him the threat of dangers far more terrible than Enki and his machinations. Because a long time ago, in a realm faraway, a little girl was taken from her family. And now a vengeance, long prophesied, is about to unfold.
As the forces of Chaos rise across the riverlands, the Anunnaki will soon discover that no one can escape the sins of the past. Not even the gods.
