About the Book Situated along the Great Lakes, three subterranean cities designed to resist terrorism: a monastery, an Aboriginal settlement, and Shushan, corporate headquarters of a communications network, survive a devastating planetary disaster. Shushan´s CEO arrogantly assumes the persona of the ancient Persian King Ahasuerus, erects a magnificent citadel, and plots to conquer the region. In defence, monastery and Aboriginal forces work with Shushan´s Jewish underground to enter the world of the increasingly delusional and dangerous ruler of the Shushan Citadel.
