When Jamie's father's throne is usurped by his uncle and his father murdered, Jamie and his cousins are powerless to intervene. How can they avenge what has happened when they are mere boys and are thousands of miles away from Scotland, sold as galley slaves? As they survive the hardships which follow, though, their muscles and their resolve hardens and when the chance arises for freedom, they grab it. Saving the daughter of a Persian sultan endears the three young men to him and they grow into skilled warriors under his care. All the while the usurper king goes slowly mad with power. When the time comes for Jamie's revenge, he is longer the helpless boy he once was. He has a loyal army to fight for him and his rightful place on the throne awaits.
