On the Anatolan plateau the lords of the earth fight for dominion over humanity against the elder gods of chaos. After aeons of divine war, Tarhun, the god of thunder ascends to the throne of Kummiya.
Tarhun, legend of the lightning god takes us to the dawn of the hittite empire.
Alalu has been deposed of by Anu, the lord of light, but in the ascension Anu is wounded and the lordship of the Earth is given to his son Tarhun, the lord of lightning.
All seems well but between the cracks and hollows of the earth, Kumarbi the vizier of Alalu conjures demons of the ancient world to slay Tarhun and the gods of the sky.
Tarhun and his court must face Illuyanka, Hahinas and Ullikummi, in an epic tale of divine kingship.
