Set against the backdrop of a savage war, "Year of the Ram" is an epic novel of a man torn between allegiance to his father, the struggle to save their nation against the onslaught of a massive greed-ridden army, and the discovery of a son he never knew had been born. The battlefield can be many things to a warrior: life to his soul, a dangerous addiction; an erotic mistress, or a facade to hide behind. As Sovereign General of the Mongol Army, son of the Emperor, and heir to the throne, Etar had everything a warrior could want except someone to share it with-- and for this he blamed his father, Chingis-Khan. Locked within the dark embrace of loneliness, Etar lived each day wanting nothing more than to do battle-- until he found Koran, his son. A gripping tale of love that reaches beyond the grave; of savage warfare, of domination, treachery, and brutal accomplishments that were written into the history of a nation with the blood of its victims. A tale of one man's battle to regain the love of his son.
