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.

About the Author

Salgari dayaki Emilio Salgari (1862-1911) was a writer of action adventure swashbucklers and a pioneer of Italian science fiction. He is one of Italy's most translated authors and is considered the father of Italian adventure fiction and the grandfather of the Spaghetti Western. He wrote more than 200 adventure novels and short stories, many of which are considered classics in Europe and Latin America. In 1897, he was named Knight of the Order of the Crown of Italy for his contributions to popular Italian literature.

"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

"Action abounds in this 6th book about pirates. I have read all 6 books in the series and I think this one is the best. Jungle action, tiger hunting, sea battles , land battles , and more . Excellent adventure series." ~ Doc Spindrift, A reviewer on Amazon.com, February 20th, 2016.
