The Kings of Angkor: Army of a Thousand Elephants

378 pages6 hours


Among the country of Cambodia are the temples of Angkor Wat . The home of the ancient Khmer and their Mighty Kings. Once home to the proud Khmer who at one time ruled what is now present day, SE Asia.
Anna Oldenburg came by invitation of a NGO group to help preserve the ancient temples. To work and find ways to save the majestic temples for others to enjoy.
Anna had been around ancient temples and archeology all her life. She was a grand niece of one of the best known archeologist of the last century. George Reisner who had spent his life in Egypt. So it was no surprise when Anna found archeology her life’s work.
Landing in Cambodia she found not only her work but also a country that strangely felt familiar. Then there was her host Nurung... Governor of Siem Reap Province but a prince and also the man of her dreams.
Since she could remember she had dreams about Nurung and about the temples of Cambodia yet they never made any sense till she arrived.
When she started working on the temples she felt like she was walking paths she had, a long time ago, but how? She had never been to Cambodia in her life.
Heng, younger cousin to Nurung, who Anna had just happened to meet in college, who after months of the same classes, they go to Egypt to work and fall in love. Yet he disappears for lengths of time but always comes back like he only left for a few minutes but never has a good explanation.
Then there is Nurung. He is always there, always watchful. Handsome beyond anything Anna could dream of... only she has dreamed of him all her life.
These three are brought together not by coincidence but by destiny’s call. They are part of a larger picture and they all must take part or possibly be destroyed forever.
It’s a race against time and making sure history as we know it doesn’t get messed up or the present day may not turn out like we know it.
Will Anna find out the meaning of her dreams? Who will she give herself to Heng or Nurung? Will those back in time at the ancient temples of Angkor Wat find a way to destroy all she holds dear... even herself?
