An unspeakable evil and an unbelievable power is about to be released into the world...
In the Tomb of Darkness and Light
If someone from the ancient world walked suddenly on the earth, what would they tell us about their times, and what changes would they observe in ours? What if that person was revered as a goddess in the ancient world and evidenced a power beyond modern human understanding? What if she were malevolent?
Fort Saint stands on a plateau between the salt deserts of the Chott Djerid and Chott Melrhir. Four thousand years ago the chotts were filled–one salt and one fresh. The fort coincidentally guards an ancient foundation where once stood a temple.
The commander of Fort Saint, Lieutenant Paul Bolang discovered the foundation and unearthed Egyptian hieroglyphics on it. His letter brought an archeological party to explore it. And when the archeologists unearthed a tomb beneath, Paul was the only one who noticed a keen foreboding in the find. Death followed the opening of the tomb and led Paul to uncover alone the existence of two other hidden tombs: the tombs of the Goddess of Darkness and the Goddess of Light.
Paul was present when the archeologists opened the tomb of the Goddess of Light and someone or something escaped. Paul chased the being out onto the desert and captured a naked woman who spoke only ancient Egyptian.
Paul struggled to communicate with woman who called herself Leora. She claimed to come from the tomb, and she claimed to be the Goddess of Light—a claim she backed up with inexplicable powers. Leora seemed benevolent, but she alerted Paul that her sister, Leila, the Goddess of Darkness wanted to also escape her tomb. Leora warned that if Leila were released, she would visit only evil and suffering on mankind—that was her nature.
Now the archeologists have discovered the second tomb, the Tomb of the Goddess of Darkness, and they want to open it.
