When Maher finds himself the sole survivor of an encounter with a mysterious creature, he is tasked to track down the beast. Though it has been years since he returned home and saw Princess Samira, Maher vows to discover why the Nile runs as red as death and to save the kingdom. Joined by his best friend and palace scribe, Setau, the two embark on a mystery that winds itself through Egypt’s very heart. Upon encountering an enigmatic man by the name of Moses, Maher realizes nothing is really as it seems.
