2 paragraph synopsis:
In a headlong action adventure set in Iraq, a brilliant, young archaeologist - Elaine - joins forces with the mysterious, charismatic Tarik in the search for an ancient Babylonian casket and an ancient artifact. Together they battle the arcane forces that threaten to destroy the world, and they fall in love.
Little does she realize, as they finally assemble the artifact which will save the earth, that success will separate them, possibly forever. For the forces they fight are ancient visitors from the stars - the biblical fallen angels - and Tarik was once their leader, Lucifer.
