In 15th century Constantinople, young Prince Constantine, heir to the Byzantine throne, is left permanently crippled when he saves the beautiful Princess Yaminah from falling to her death in the Hagia Sofia. Meanwhile in Scotland, John Grant, a young man with unusual abilities, is rescued from certain death by a formidable Moorish warrior whose own life was once saved by John's father.
Unbeknown to them, John Grant and Prince Constantine share a unique connection - a connection that lies at the very centre of their beings. When fate orchestrates that their paths should cross, the repercussions will be felt across the continents.
