Abstract:

"Eight plagues have come upon the land of Egypt and the nation is gripped with fear. The Egyptian nobles watch in dismay as their aging Pharaoh stubbornly refuses to listen to the demands of the Hebrew God. Young Prince Martiesen is adon of the most prosperous region in Lower Egypt, which includes the land of Goshen where the Hebrews live. He has been forced by Pharaoh to further increase the burden of the Hebrews yet Martiesen himself is in love with the beautiful Hebrew maiden, Elisheba, whom he is forbidden by Egyptian law to marry. In his own household, unbeknownst to Martiesen, his new scribe, Peshala, is plotting evil against him. As the nation despairs, the nobles turn to Martiesen for leadership, but before he can decide what to do, Elisheba is kidnapped by Peshala and terrifying darkness falls over the land."--Amazon.
