"Hither the Gods come not at any summons. The Nameless One has insulted them
and is forever alone. Go not nigh, lest their vengeance wither you away!" The warning was inscribed
on the entrance of the hidden tomb, forgotten for millennia in the sands of mystic Egypt. Then the
archaeologists and grave robbers came in search of the fabled Jewel of Seven Stars, which they
found clutched in the hand of the mummy. Few heeded the ancient warning, until all who came in
contact with the Jewel began to die in a mysterious and violent way, with the marks of a strangler
around their neck.
Now, in a bedroom filled with ancient relics, a distinguished Egyptologist lies senseless, stricken by
a force that challenges human understanding. From beyond the grave Queen Tera is reaching out for
the mysterious jewel that will bring her five thousand-year-old plan to fulfillment.
