When Mongol armies storm into the Middle Kingdom, the descendents of Yun Cai are trapped in a desperate siege that will determine the fate of the Empire. Guang and Shih are identical twins—one a heroic soldier idolized by the city he defends, the other a humble doctor. In the midst of war, jealous conflicts over Shihs wife and concubine threaten to tear the brothers apart. Enemies close in on every side, some disturbingly close to home. Can the Yun family survive imprisonment, ruthless treachery, and Kublai Khan’s bloody hordes—or will their own reckless passions destroy them first? Aimed at readers who relish epic historical novels rich in exotic detail, this story will captivated aficionados of Umberto Eco and James Clavell.
