Book 2: Exiles in Wasteland opens with the prisoner, the head treasure hunter, and a surviving Roman soldier washing up on the Libyan shoreline.

The prisoner and treasure hunter agree to a temporary alliance in order to hunt for the Red Lady's origins - a forgotten oasis somewhere in the south Egyptian wastes.

The senator sets off with a military attachment to chase these protagonists down. The prisoner explains that Alexander the Great originally received the Red Lady, on his quest to defeat the ultimate enemy - his own mortality.

The traveling trio enter a dangerous border town, in search of a wandering Berber tribe that can take them to Siwa.
