Overview

BEFORE THE AGE OF KINGS, WHEN GOD WAS A WOMAN...

A queen tries to prevent a gender rift from escalating into war.

3200 BC. Sumer is Iraq 5,000 years ago. Inanna is Goddess, and women rule a world on the brink of annihilation, not by fire, pestilence, or flood, but by man himself.

When Nippur’s feminist regime drops its guard, a power-mad priest fabricates an emergency to impose male rule by armed might. Temple leaders turn from a long-held dread of war to fearful reliance on his despotic demand for military action.

Instead, empath queen Uruna seeks a peaceful solution. Under the watchful eye of a deadly cobra, she defies tradition to pursue a prophetic vision with a renegade lion hunter. But when love conflicts with duty, can she honor both? Or will one destroy the other?

To salvage human progress, Uruna must decide between her lifelong belief in prophecy and an overwhelming call for armed defense. The wrong choice will plunge civilized humanity into chaos, never to recover. As for Uruna, invite an end more hideous than her worst nightmare.

About the Author

Dan Phalen authors fiction about women in Sumerian history. Married to a strong woman, he investigated feminist cultures from the distant past, particularly shifts between matricentric and patriarchal cultures. His Sumerian Chronicles trilogy resulted.

Dan lives in the heart of California "Gold Country" where history lurks around every corner and sometimes under the local shopping center.
