Red River Vol. 18
Yuri, a teen of the 21st century, has been transported to ancient Anatolia as part of a scheme by the evil Nakia, Queen of the Hittites. Only the intervention of Nakia’s stepson, Prince Kail, saved Yuri from the Queen’s bloodthirsty intentions. As an unintended consequence, the people of the kingdoms of Anatolia have embraced Yuri as the incarnation of the great war-goddess Ishtar.
The latest Egyptian assault on Ugarit is being led by Ramses, who is not only their top military genius but still carries a white-hot torch for Yuri! Yuri tries yet another unorthodox strategy to defend the city, only this one backfires and lands her right in Ramses’ clutches. When Kail finds out he takes off in pursuit of Ramses, who has abandoned the assault and is racing back to Egypt with Yuri. What neither man suspects is that the very nature of their romantic rivalry is about to undergo a profound change!
