A heroic story of mankind's greatest epic of freedom. A courageous people stake their destiny on a woman's love, a warrior's sword, and a prophecy. In a desert land nestled against the blue of an ancient sea, mighty upheavals of man and nature signal the beginning of a long prophesied battle for mankind's heart and soul. Here, in the midst of titanic struggle, a promised land awaits its chosen people who were once led by Moses and now follow a soldier so bloodthirsty that his friends and even his God may turn against him. Toward this land sails the mighty ship of a mysterious pirate called the Minotaur and a storm tossed sea people strangely determined to conquer the most fertile land on earth. And here, a special clan, the Children of the Lion, blessed and cursed by the mark of Cain, forge the mighty swords that will bring down the walls of Jericho, free a beautiful and bewitching slave, and unleash an earthshaking power into the hands of a hero whose name will live for all time.
