Red River Vol. 22
Prince Kail, a young warrior and sorcerer, and Yuri, a modern-day teen, were thrown together when Queen Nakia drew Yuri across time and space into the ancient Hittite Empire. When it is the season of the North Star, Prince Kail has the power to send Yuri home. But the evil queen’s plan to murder them both–and their growing feelings for one another–keep getting in the way!
Yuri’s rebel forces in Egypt attack and take Thebes, but this does little to persuade Queen Nefertiti to release Ramses, who remains under threat of execution. Learning that Nerfertiti has taken Ramses to a temple inside her palace, Yuri rushes there to try to save him. In the course of the attempt, she and Nefertiti wind up in an argument that leads to the proud Queen of Egypt learning Yuri’s true identity. While all of this is going on, the rebels themselves have kept busy storming the palace. Success seems within their grasp, but their leader Yuri’s desire to rescue Ramses does not promise that they will ultimately triumph in their fight for freedom.
