With the fire of newfound testimony, Ammon and his brethren leave Zarahemla to preach the gospel in Lamanite lands, carrying nothing but hunting weapons and the promises of God. Spotted by an enemy scout, they part ways in the dense jungle with hopes of reuniting at the close of their harvest. Ammon follows the Spirit to the borders of Ishmael, where he's ambushed just seconds after spotting Elena, a fair-skinned woman who captures his interest. As Ammon gains reknown in the kingdom, he defends Elena from the advances of Gad, the loathsome widower she'll soon be required to marry. Then swearing allegiance to the Lamanite king and trusting in the Lord, Ammon further proves his strength and devotion by sparing King Lamoni's flocks from plunderers. The amazed king and his court are converted to the gospel through Ammon's powerful teachings and the miraculous events that follow, but each action Ammon takes causes more and more disruption throughout the kingdom. And when Elena is abducted by her own brother and hidden away in an unspeakable place, Ammon faces his greatest struggle yet: not just the outward challenge of lethal combat but also the inward challenge of loving one's enemy.

"5 Stars! 5 Stars! 5 Stars!" --LDS Women's Book Review
"Moore's genius with character development paints a Lamanite people rich in traditions and passionate in beliefs. She depicts the brutality of the time period without garish scenes of violence. This fictional retelling of factual accounts is enthralling, intense and unforgettable. The page-turning, adventurous pace of the book doesn't ebb but is balanced by moments of reflection and compelling plot." --Sheryl C.S. Johnson, DESERET NEWS
