Summary

WELCOME TO INDIE AUTHOR JAY GIRGIS, AS HE INTRODUCES HIS DEBUT NOVELETTE TO THE WORLD!

Welcome to 698 A.D. It is time of unrest, with the Arabs taking Christian lands and the Berber Christians being taken into slavery in Carthage, North West Africa. Itri is a young boy when he is enslaved with his parents and enforced into the Arab religion and culture. After being physically emasculated, he meets his master's daughter and agrees to run away with her. They are hunted down until they meet Christians like themselves who are standing up against the Arab invasions.

Years pass as the conflict rises and Itri learns to fight, but the tense love between him and Laila grows stronger. They forge strong relationships with fellow fighters, as Itri learns that his brother is in the Arab army. It is not just a contest of blood ties, but also religious beliefs and difference in cultures. With Itri refusing to take any life, can he hold to his principles as he faces his own family while holding back the oncoming Arabic hordes?
