The Victorian Empire has declared war on the Zulus if they
don't accede to their outrageous demands. The clock is
ticking down to the appointed hour. With no idea why the
British are marching three massive columns of men and guns
towards them, one Zulu general is prepared to take an
impossible risk. But the life he's gambling with isn't his
own . . .
The sole survivor of a shipwreck off the Zululand coast, 15
year-old Elizabeth Jones is taken in by the Zulus, the
people of the sky. Six years later, her white skin becomes
useful to the Zulu army as they try to work out why the
Victorian Empire has pointed their war-machine at the Zulu
nation. Elizabeth is suddenly Zululand's most important spy.
While infiltrating the British camp, Elizabeth's disguise
as a young soldier is uncovered almost immediately by
Captain Jack Burdell. However, he believes the tale she
spins of searching for a missing brother and shields her
from discovery, allowing her to bunk in his tent and giving
her a job as his batman. Burdell is war-weary and
disillusioned - no longer willing to follow regulations at
But as Elizabeth and Jack explore their growing attraction
to each other, the two armies move towards their inevitable
clash. Elizabeth is torn between the guilt of betrayal and
her fierce loyalty to her Zulu family, and when Zulu and
British meet on the battlefield, both she and Jack find
their hearts and their lives caught in the crossfire
