The year is 1904.
The Ottoman Empire is crumbling.
The alliances of the desert sheikhdoms of Arabia are fracturing as brutal battles for power are fought out - preventing the tribes from uniting against either the powerful British Empire or the rising power of the al Saud - the Arabian Royal Family.
Fouad, the Hawk of Narash, is a fierce warlord fighting a blood feud against the mighty al Saud as he prepares to reclaim his stolen kingdom from his treacherous half-brother.
But one early morning, when Fouad ruthlessly attacks a desert camp, he meets his match – Zahirah, a striking young Bedouin woman, who vows to avenge the deaths of her loved ones.
Yet both the enigmatic Fouad and the resilient Zahirah are unaware that their fates are intricately woven together as a mesmerising tale of war, passion and revenge unfolds.
Will Fouad emerge victorious in the violent battle between the Swords of Arabia?
Or will the forces of the al Saud or foreign domination prove too strong?
