Summary
Cairo, 1887. When a jealous former lover destroys the happiness of Penrod Ballantyne and his fiancee, Amber Benbrook, Amber leaves him and travels to the wilds of Abyssinia with her twin sister, Saffron and adventurer husband, Ryder Courtney. On a mission to establish a silver mine, they make the dangerous journey to the new capital of Addis Ababa, where they are welcomed by Menelik, the King of Kings. Back in Cairo, a devastated Penrod seeks oblivion in the city's opium dens. He is rescued by an old friend, who is now in the Italian army, and offered the chance to join the military efforts. Italy has designs on Abyssinia, and there are rumours of a plan to invade. With storm clouds gathering and on opposing sides of the invasion, can Penrod and Amber find their way back to one another - against all the odds?
