Sonja’s taken enough poison to kill a wooly Rhinoceros. But she’s no wooly Rhino, she’s Sonja! She awakens from her poison-induced coma into a very new reality: Thulsa Doom has destroyed her capital, and with the help of his evil god, Set, he is rounding up Sonja’s subjects, for an unknown but surely extremely unpleasant purpose. Thulsa hires the very mercenary band whom Sonja fielded against the Emorans to hunt the refugee Queen down.
