Hills of Blood
Terrence and his men are dying…
He and his fellow Confederate soldiers have been captured by the North during the American civil war and winter is fast approaching.
As fellow prisoner, Zebe, lies dying, he reveals a world-changing secret – a hidden store of gold buried deep in the mountains.
But Terrance and his men have no way of getting to it.
That is, until the Northerners offer them a deal.
If Terrance and his fellow Southerners will help the North defend their territory from the Comanches, then they can escape the terrible conditions of the prisoner of war camp.
Little do the Northerners know that the gold is buried in the same Comanche territory.
Terrance and the other men of the South agree to the mission, intending to find the gold and bring it back to the Confederacy.
But when Northern Sergeant Gilcross saves his life, Terrence forges a close friendship with his rescuer and begins to doubt his original plan.
Distracted by their own petty squabbles, the North and South fail to see that the Comanche are quickly growing in strength.
If they are to survive, North and South must put aside their differences and face their common enemy before it is too late.
Richly authentic and full of drama, Hills of Blood is an action-packed western that is guaranteed to get your pulse racing.
