Sam Monroe is the reluctant commander of a tough-minded warrior people living in what was once northern Mexico. Flanked on the northeast by the Kingdom River, a vast, trade-driven nation that replaced the southern US, and on the northwest by the Khanate, an empire of nomads who swept down the west coast under the rule of the Great Khan, an pressured on the South by the Inca, Sam's people cling to a precarious, hard-won freedom. Aware that Khan intends to smash his tiny country on the way to conquering Kingdom River, Sam makes a nervous alliance with proud, stubborn Queen Joan, who rules Kingdom River from an island capital in the middle of the wide Mississippi. Sam hate the ever-growing burden of rulership and command and especially fulfilling his promise to marry Queen Joan's naive daughter.
