Can a handful of men take the throne of Assam?
Assam, 1869. At the end of their last adventure, Sandokan and Yanez promised to restore Surama to the throne of her ancestors. Aided by Tremal-Naik, Kammamuri and the Tigers of Mompracem, the Portuguese devises an ingenious plan to take the kingdom from Sindhia, the rajah who had sold her to the thugs many years ago. However, all does not go as easily as predicted for an unexpected adversary thwarts their every move: Teotokris, the rajah’s favourite courtier, and a deadlier foe than any they have encountered before.

"Set in 1869, this tale has all the elements of true swashbuckling adventure: courageous and dashing heroes, daring escapes, reprehensible villains, and a damsel in need of rescuing. Each time the resourceful Sandokan and Yanez are about to win the day, Salgari inserts another twist that requires them to overcome new challenges and compels the reader to turn the page. If you seek an old-fashioned swashbuckler, this one will not disappoint." ~Cindy Vallar, The Bookaneer, Pirates and Privateers
