ByPeter Rogerson

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The second part of The Jewels of Ooombis, The Eagle and the King mines what has been referred to as the oldest human legend still in existence. Much of the story takes place in the Sumerian City State of Kish under the rule of Etana and his childless wife. This is the bronze age, and predates the pyramids and Stonehenge. Henna has been born to be Holder of the Brooch, a classy prostitute occupying a high position within a nomadic tribe. With a childhood friend, Rowen, a self-confessed lesbian, she runs off into the wilds after committing a bloody murder, and with her she takes the Brooch of Ooombis, which contains imprisoned in its crystalline structure the sexual passions of its original owner, an alien woman. The two women find their way to Kish where one of the religions demands human sacrifice. Meanwhile, the ring of Ooombis is an increasing distance away and for a while in the hands of a reforming drunkard called Pictes and after him, Arkes, a youth.grieiving for a lost love
