Another instalment of the Persian prince’s adventures is set in a fictional Middle Eastern country during the fullest bloom of the Middle Ages. The main hero comes back from the wearisome military campaign and stops in at a friendly ruler’s palace. Inside, he meets a treacherous Vizier who tricks him into releasing the legendary Sands of Time that pose a gruesome threat to the world.
