Children of the Lion Series, vol. #12. Cassandra, the dark prophetess, had foretold how the unshakable walls of the mightiest cities would at last come tumbling down. But no one heard her anguished cries as one nation rushed madly into a terrible war over a beautiful woman, and another, calling themselves the Chosen People, marched across the unforgiving desert to fulfill the promise of their God. And in the midst of this overwhelming tide of war and destruction rising to engulf all the known world, was a special family branded with the mark of Cain and entrusted with the secret they passed from generation to generation. They were the Children of the Lion, and whether the army they served was Greek or Israelite, these passionate men and women would now stand shoulder to shoulder with history's most unforgettable heroes...as they fought to claim mankind's greatest victory...the Promised Land.
