Ultimately, a new order will rise from the smouldering ashes of war, but not until Koos; an expat, and Tihosi; a game ranger, go head-to-head with the elements of darkness that invade South Africa’s Kruger National Park. When several tourists flee into the vast wilderness they soon learn that the key to survival lies within themselves, as they become pawns in an increasingly deadly tango with ferocious beasts, rebel soldiers, an international poaching syndicate, and evil witchdoctors. This epic tale has elements of courage, love, loyalty, and haunting heartbreak that shine brightly through the flames of bloody revolution.
