Archeologist Lyra Mayet's life's work has been to prove that Pharaoh Horemheb had offspring. She is thrilled when she finally succeeds by locating the tomb of Namire, the Pharaoh's daughter. However, Namire's tomb contains more than just secrets; it holds the key of balance between good and evil. Recently stolen from the Goddess Ma'at, Lyra's discovery allows worshippers of chaos the ability to attain the sacred feather and bring about a world of hellish anarchy.

Anubis's second in command, Asim has been given the duty by the Egyptian Gods to retrieve the Feather of Justice before it's corrupted and destroyed, thereby bringing about a new world order with chaos at its head. Following the trail of the feather to the United States, Asim realizes he's running out of time. What he doesn't expect is Lyra, who reminds him of a love lost long ago. Even though his distraction delays his retrieval of the feather and puts the world at risk, he isn't sure he can let her go.

Teaming up, the two race to reacquire the feather from the followers of chaos before it's too late. They have less than two weeks to complete their mission. Will they succeed or will the world succumb to the evil waiting to arise?
