They were half-brothers, raised in different worlds in the same country, and destined to be lifelong enemies. Manfred De La Ray and Shasa Courtney, sons of Centaine de Thiry, were blood enemies from their very first boyhood encounter. Caught up in the tumult of South Africa's history through two decades, they found themselves adversaries in an age-old war of savagery to seize the sword of power in their land. Sweeping from the teeming goldfields of the highland to the secret citadels of Afrikaaner power, from the clamouring stadiums of Hitler's Berlin Olympics to the raging war over Abyssinia.

In an epic that stretches from the end of one world to the next, New York Times bestselling author Wilbur Smith chronicles the fate of a warring family―and a continent at war with itself...
BETWEEN THE HUNTER AND THE PREY,
Sasha Courtney was groomed by his French-born mother to take control of the Courtney Mining and Finance Company, whose font of wealth was sown deep beneath African soil. But Sasha's brother, Manfred, had been trained by his renegade father to be a hunter―of lions, and of men.
THE VICTIM AND THE SURVIVOR.
As the two boys became men, they took on the extraordinary powers of each parent: Sasha, a man in tune with his continent and its people; Manfred who, like his father, was willing to shape his world with a gun. So when the winds of World War II reached Africa, each brother chose a side...
IS A SAGA OF BETRAYAL, VIOLENCE, AND TREASURE...
Now, the future of a young nation is being forged amidst a clash of civilizations, ideals, and blood feuds. And as Sasha and Manfred rise to power, a land of beauty and suffering will be remade―for better or for worse―in an image of their own.
"You can get lost in Wilbur Smith...with his swashbuckling novels of Africa."―Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly
