“The Kings of Angkor: Army of a Thousand Elephants,” a new book by Maine author Mary Moriarty, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co. Inc, according to a news release.

Among the mystic plains and mountains of Cambodia, a dedicated archeologist, Anna Oldenburg, suddenly finds herself inexplicably thrust into the life and times — ancient and modern — of the nation that once had the vision to create the magnificent Angkor Wat.

In the royal courts of Suryavarman II, Anna would come to know friendship, honor, courage and the one unimaginable love that seems timeless and consuming.

The corrupting influence of power, however, courses in the veins of those who are after it,  and Anna finds herself at the center of intrigues, threatening to destroy her and those who have become dear to her.

Moriarty was born and raised in New Hampshire, and spent summer vacations as a child in Camden, where she now lives with her husband, Bob, her children and pets. She lived in Cambodia for 11 years, where she fell in love with the history and culture of the Khmer people.

“The Kings of Angkor” is a 274-page paperback with a retail price of $22, and is available at www.dorrancebookstore.com, bn.com (Barnes & Noble) and amazon.com.
