In the tradition of Wilbur Smith and Patrick O'Brian comes an epic South Seas adventure.The year is 1793 and having suffered at the hands of Tonga's evil King Tui'puloto for too long, the Island Nations of the South Pacific are poised on the brink of civil war.When two heroic young warriors, Sevesi and Hiki, dare to challenge the King's absolute power, they incur his wrath, and only narrowly escape with their lives. The pair flee north, seeking sanctuary with the rebel tribes of Ha'apai. But instead of finding a safe haven, they are accused of being spies...Meanwhile, as the British and French continue their relentless quest to colonise the South Pacific, one of their ships is hijacked and strays off course, inadvertently dragging both Empires into the greatest tribal war the Pacific has ever known.As cultures collide, blood is shed, wrongs are righted and unlikely friendships are forged. Yet again, the British and French sorely underestimate the volatility and strength of their foes and the question remains: who will emerge as Lords of the Pacific?
