Sarawak combines diligent research and attention to historical detail, along with romance, adventure, and gripping action, to weave an extraordinary story of intrigue and high adventure. Two men, worlds and cultures apart, clash in their quest to control the most savage and inhospitable land on earth, Sarawak. James Brooke, a young English aristocrat grows up with dreams of fortunes to be made in the Far East. To realize his dream, James turns his back on a life of ease and comfort, breaks a promise to his father, renounces love, and through fate and the force of his indomitable will, finds himself in one of the most hostile and primitive environments on earth. Now he is face to face with Awang Api, a cruel and fiery Malay nobleman who covets Sarawak for himself and is willing to do anything to achieve it. Only one man will eventually rule Sarawak, but will the personal price he has paid been too great?
