Angkor already is. And there cannot be two world trading centres in the region. So the Siamese invade. Their plan: to destroy Angkor and the Khmer empire with it.In a tiny farming village outside the city, one of the king’s bodyguards is enjoying a day off with her family when the Siamese army sweeps through, killing, burning and taking captives for the slave trade. She is captured while her mother escapes to warn the city. This sweeping epic follows the fortunes of these two women as one is taken north in the slave caravans and the other is trapped in the centre of a burning city, only to find, when the flames die down, that almost the entire population is gone.Can they survive the ravages of Siam and the death-throes of an empire?This fast-paced historical epic is brimming with sex and violence, humour and tragedy, love and betrayal, greed and revenge.
