Publisher's Summary

They were half-brothers, raised in different worlds in the same country, and destined to be life-long enemies.

Manfred De La Ray and Shasa Courtney, sons of Centaine de Thiry, were blood enemies from their very first boyhood encounter. Caught up in the tumult of South Africa's history through two decades, they found themselves adversaries in an age-old war of savagery to seize the sword of power in their land.

Their story is a rich and thrilling adventure, an epic saga of rivalry and revenge, of winners and losers in a struggle where only the ruthless survive.

Overly abridged

The story is rushed and loses much of its flow due to the heavily abridged recording.

the reason not to listen to abridged stories

I have to say that for me Wilbur Smith should never be abridged. Its like cutting the smile off the Mona Lisa, you miss the purpose and magic. A good story nonetheless but would have been so much better unabridged.
