Nine powerful gods of ancient Egypt are known as the Ennead. When the god of war, Seth, kills his brother Osiris to take over Egypt, he ushers in an era of chaos and cruelty under his rule. The other gods are unable to fight Seth’s power until centuries later, when a new challenger appears: Horus, the child of Isis. Horus is not yet even a full god, but he’s backed by other deities to dethrone Seth and bring an end to the many years of bloodshed. The conflict between Seth and Horus that begins as a series of trials warps into a complex web of deceit, obsession...and even desire.
