There was nothing they could do but hang on as wave after wave hit the bow with bone crunching impacts. The rigging they were in was awash each time the bow pitched down, the sea sometimes erupting up and forcing the trapdoor open, before it came back down with a crash. They clung to the rigging for dear life, neither able to speak nor hear anything other than the wind and crashing of the waves, their vision blurred with grey water, both caught up in a moment that seemed to last an age.

1735: Lt Alex Hurst finds himself accompanying Lady Helena and Isabelle Montagu to Greece on a British warship, and falls in love with Helena. They plan to marry, but the sisters are unwitting pawns in a huge trade deal and are kidnapped from the ship by ferocious albino warriors named the Rakshasa. Alex is then forced to work with the amoral Lord Charlemont, and given just weeks to find and rescue the two sisters in order to save the trade deal.

As the Englishmen pursue the Rakshasa from Athens to their island stronghold on Santorini, they realise their foes are far more sinister, malevolent and powerful than was first thought. The stakes of the game are raised higher still when Helena is drawn into the strange nocturnal world of the Rakshasa, as one of its rulers seeks to seduce her.

Swashbuckling, fast moving and awash in Greek myth and history, Empire of the Moon plays out against the backdrop of ancient Athens and the rugged beauty of Santorini, capturing the enchantment of that epoch and the indomitable nature of the human spirit.
