Intended for mature audiences
In Sumer, the prosperous city of Birith is known its devotion to the goddess Inanna. But after a millennium, the city is in danger of being overrun by nomadic refugees. Powerful interests outside of the city begin to question the wisdom of continuing to submit to Inanna's temple's authority. When the role of consort is passed unexpectedly to a woman named Entika, she must overcome not only the prejudices of her own people but a cunning enemy backed by the rising tide of history.
