In 2241 B.C., just one hundred and six years after the global flood, the plain of Shinar is a vast wilderness. There a great tower has been built to reach the heavens placed inside a walled municipality known as The City. Strong-willed Nabella lives a quarter-days-journey from the safety of mankind's sole city on her father, Jokaan's, olive orchard. When she discovers a grisly ritual the family believes they've been cursed for refusing to move their business to The City. Nabella is determined to help the men even though her betrothed disapproves. She sneaks through the orchard when she is attacked by a tanniyn-a fearsome beast. Wounded when she tries to escape she winds up overhearing the men say only Noah, Shem or Japheth from the Former World can break the curse. Meanwhile Ra'anel, head celestial advisor, lures people into The City to worship pagan gods so he and Cush can control them. But Nimrod's feats as a mighty hunter become increasingly formidable. And tyrannical. Nabella follows her father, disguised as a boy to seek Shem for herself. But her life is in peril when she finds herself kidnapped, forced to do Cush's will, and her charade is discovered. Will Nabella find Shem? Will the curse be broken? Will her betrothed come to the rescue?
