Book Description

1211 CE. As Chinggis Khan rolls out his conquest of his neighbours, a low ranking officer named Mongke Nichan uses the war to find the soul who loves him best.

But finding his twin flame and convincing her are two completely different matters in this wartime romance that takes you into the very heart of Asian mysticism.

Sample Chapter

Morning came. Quietly the arban tested Biya by putting his arm around her shoulders. Facing no resistance, he slipped a hand under her underdress and touched her breast. Probing a bit, he watched as she responded contently to his touch.  The arban turned her around and kissed her sweetly, “Will you consent to be my lover, Biya? Have I proven myself to you that much at least?”

Biya nodded, “I will yield in this so long as it is for the right reasons.”

“You did not lower your shields last night.  I tried to reach you, but I will not violate you.  I cannot violate you.  We are one,” affirmed the arban as he kissed her hands.

“You wish to try again.”

“Yes.  You must pass this test, Biya.  I cannot yield on this matter until you do.”

“I understand. When do you wish to try again?”

“If you think that is all I want from you, then you are gravely mistaken.  Perhaps you think that men’s lives are all about war or toil or hunting or sex, but it is simply not true,” corrected the arban.

“When will you dismiss the guards around us?”

“When you have passed the tests from the gods and goddesses and when I know you will no longer flee from your destiny.”

“And if the khan should order you away from here?” asked Biya.


“He won’t—at least not for a very long time. I am only an arban, the lowest officer rank.”

“Why haven’t you told me your name?”

“You know why.  Names have power. Mine comes at a price: the complete lowering of your shields in the spirit realm.  Once you have done that and stopped sabotaging your healing abilities you will find my name quickly enough. Until you do that, you lack the power you need to help your people.  Yes! Ironic, isn’t it?  I come to you to empower you to help your people resist the very government I represent. Our Father Sky and your Mother Heaven have a sense of humour!” laughed the arban.


“They do indeed!” agreed Biya.
