Tamasheq, Captital of the Kingdom of N'Nas Amon, is soon to be attacked by invaders from Persia and Byzantium. So the queen has hired mercenaries--Cretans, Thracians, Vandals and Sarmatians.The queen talks to her son, Prince Aksamon, and explains she has made a decision--she wants him to flee for safety behind enemy lines so he can perpetuate the family line. And she's entrusting the Sarmatians, women warriors, to accomplish this. They escape the castle via a secret underground passageway, but it is booby-trapped and one of them gets caught on fire and dies. Soon after, they spring another trap, which may be deadlier. This is an interesting comic, sort of like DUNGEONS & DRAGONS with lesbians. If you're a fan of CONAN or RED SONJA you'll enjoy this.
