Linda Hanson has a beautiful house, a loving husband and two adorable daughters. Her life is perfect, until the day she receives the devastating news that her husband Jim has died in a car accident. When she wakes up the next morning to find him alive and well, she assumes it was all a dream, but is shaken by how vivid it felt. She soon realises it wasn't a dream, and her world is turned upside down as the surreal circumstances lead her to discover that her perfect life may not have been all that it appeared. Desperate to save her family, Linda begins a furious race against time and fate to try and preserve everything that she and Jim have built together.

18th century Kazakhstan is a vast region of austere beauty, bordered by China, Russia and Tibet. The proud and warlike Kazakh tribes have survived and fought for centuries--against their enemies and amongst themselves. Oraz, a mystic warrior possessing great powers, foretells the birth of Mansur--a saviour destined to bring victory to the Kazakh people. Fearful of Oraz' prediction, the Jungar ruler Galdan orders his mighty General, Sharish, to find the child and slay him. Oraz devotes himself to training Mansur to become a warrior of unequalled strength and skill. Good confronts Evil, friendship is forged in adversity and tested by jealousy and love is sacrificed on the altar of fate. And through it all, a legend is born.
