In the lost world of prehistory, a girl is born. Is she a goddess? Cija herself believes that she is. For seventeen years her mother, the Dictatress, has kept her imprisoned in an isolated tower. When she is released, it is with a mission: to seduce Zerd, the snake-scaled general of an occupying army--and stab him to death. This fantastic story of love, jealousy and sudden death is unlike anything you have ever read. It grips the imagination from start to finish.

This is the first half of the novel originally published under the same title in 1963 by Hodder and Stoughton. The second volume is called The Dragon.
