$1.05

Chapter 1: The Consul's Yarn

5:54
$1.05

'Listen, old fellow,' went on Sir Henry…

7:11
$2.10

'Well, where are you gentlemen steering for?' asked our friend…

6:10
$1.05

The tall man (who among his own people was commonly…)

6:19
$1.05

I shook my head at him.

6:43
$1.05

Chapter 2: The Black Hand

6:14
$1.05

After the first day Good succeeded, with the help of some cloth…

5:48
$1.05

'Hulloa!' holloaed Sir Henry from the other boat.

5:42
$1.05

Just then, too, although all the other sounds of the forest had ceased…

5:43
$1.05

Chapter 3: The Mission Station

6:38
$1.05

In half an hour more we were once again making fair progress…

6:39
$1.05

Crossing over a plank and through a very narrow opening in the wall…

6:08
$1.05

When dinner was over we lit our pipes…

7:03
$2.10

Chapter 4: Alphonse and His Annette

5:30
$1.05

Just as I returned his axe to Umslopogaas…

7:04
$2.10

As Umslopogaas, savage old Zulu that he was…

6:07
$1.05

Alphonse stopped weeping, and began to rub his back.

5:38
$1.05

Chapter 5: Umslopogaas Makes a Promise

5:13
$1.05

For a moment Umslopogaas looked up from his sharpening…

6:03
$1.05

Shortly after this, the people whom Mr. Mackenzie had sent out…

6:31
$1.05

The door was unbarred.

5:06
$1.05

Meanwhile I had been thinking rapidly, as one does in emergencies…

6:19
$1.05

'Dearest Father and Mother,' ran the note…

7:03
$2.10

Chapter 6: The Night Wears On

5:54
$1.05

'It is well,' went on Mr. Mackenzie.

6:13
$1.05

It so happened that Mr. Mackenzie had in his little store…

6:20
$1.05

It was now nearly one o'clock in the morning…

5:51
$1.05

Chapter 7: A Slaughter Grim and Great

6:43
$1.05

Presently Umslopogaas, who was a few paces ahead of me…

5:11
$1.05

When I was two-thirds up I halted…

6:21
$1.05

I soon got the magazine of the repeater filled again with cartridges…

5:23
$1.05

I myself did not go into the melee…

5:41
$1.05

Chapter 8: Alphonse Explains

5:58
$1.05

At the kraal entrance the scene was a strange one.

6:09
$1.05

It struck me as an odd thing that a girl who could find the nerve…

6:38
$1.05

Accordingly we brought him to the tree where he had hidden…

6:50
$1.05

Chapter 9: Into the Unknown

6:19
$1.05

We also promised to give him wages…

5:59
$1.05

Thence we proceeded a distance of about a hundred and fifty miles…

6:54
$1.05

As we were paddling leisurely along…

4:36
$1.05

Up went the swans, circling ever higher till at last they were mere specks…

5:03
$1.05

Chapter 10: The Rose of Fire

6:31
$1.05

'Well, let us hope for the best and prepare ourselves for the worst,'…

8:00
$2.10

On we rushed towards this pillar of fire…

6:47
$1.05

'My word,' called out Good, who was on shore the first…

7:18
$2.10

'I say, you fellows, let's get out of this or we shall all go off our heads.'

3:37
$1.05

Chapter 11: The Frowning City

5:09
$1.05

Just then, however, the others woke up…

6:30
$1.05

So we hailed back in English, French…

6:34
$1.05

Good did not much like this allusion to his fat…

5:44
$1.05

Curiosity now began to overcome the fear of the onlookers…

5:52
$1.05

On the brow of this precipice stood a great building…

5:52
$1.05

Chapter 12: The Sister Queens

6:28
$1.05

On we went up the first flight of one hundred and twenty steps…

6:05
$1.05

In the exact centre of the hall was a solid mass of black marble…

6:19
$1.05

I have seen beautiful women in my day…

5:30
$1.05

'Oh, my word!' thought I to myself…

5:59
$1.05

When they were all gone she bent forward…

6:45
$1.05

Chapter 13: About the Zu-Vendi People

6:02
$1.05

The best bred people in the country are, as I think I have said…

5:28
$1.05

Zu-Vendis has had its king-makers as well as England…

6:08
$1.05

The law of the country is, on the whole, mild and just…

5:45
$1.05

And now comes a question which I find some difficulty in answering.

4:32
$1.05

Chapter 14: The Flower Temple

6:36
$1.05

As soon as we were seated the driver called out…

6:07
$1.05

Overcome at so awe-inspiring a sight, the vast loveliness…

6:55
$1.05

As we appeared there was a murmur through the vast crowd…

4:14
$1.05

There is silence upon the face of the Earth and the waters thereof!

5:26
$1.05

As he spoke a wonderful and a beautiful thing happened.

5:31
$1.05

Then Sorais made answer in her deep quiet tones…

5:03
$1.05

Chapter 15: Sorais' Song

5:48
$1.05

On other days we would pay visits to the country seats…

6:36
$1.05

Next day we were much more lively…

5:36
$1.05

That night, when in fear and trembling we attended the royal…

5:25
$1.05

Another source of imminent danger to us was the rising envy…

8:24
$2.10

Chapter 16: Before the Statue

6:48
$1.05

'Thou sayest thou dost love me,' she said in a low voice…

7:21
$2.10

I found the old warrior leaning on Inkosi-kaas as usual…

6:04
$1.05

This reading and signing of the laws took a long time…

6:52
$1.05

Chapter 17: The Storm Breaks

4:49
$1.05

From the direction of the quarters of the maids of honour…

5:17
$1.05

At last, whether it was her gaze, or the perfume in her hair…

6:00
$1.05

I gained audience of the Queen without trouble.

7:27
$2.10

Here we heard from Alphonse, who was deeply aggrieved…

7:40
$2.10

Chapter 18: War! Red War!

7:08
$2.10

This incident was unimportant enough in itself…

6:13
$1.05

Just then Sir Henry joined us, and Good arrived, too…

6:04
$1.05

Throughout this long and eloquent address Good had been…

6:56
$1.05

Up she rose and, descending from the throne…

7:06
$2.10

'And I tell ye strangers - all save Bougwan…'

6:33
$1.05

Chapter 19: A Strange Wedding

7:04
$2.10

Now, as it happened, Agon had been hurried away that morning…

6:57
$1.05

It may, perhaps, be remembered…

4:45
$1.05

Well, that night Good and I messed as I have said in solitary grandeur…

4:35
$1.05

Chapter 20: The Battle of the Pass

5:58
$1.05

The main body of the army reached the neck about dinner-time…

6:31
$1.05

And at last up came the red sun…

6:28
$1.05

And so, notwithstanding all that we could do, the enemy drew nearer…

7:08
$2.10

Just then we saw the smaller bodies of cavalry stationed on…

5:51
$1.05

Chapter 21: Away! Away!

6:36
$1.05

Leaving Umslopogaas to hold the horses, I hobbled to the spring…

7:06
$2.10

On, clattering through the sleeping streets.

7:46
$2.10

Chapter 22: How Umslopogaas Held the Stair

6:10
$1.05

Just then, to my astonishment, the Zu-Vendi officer Kara…

7:21
$2.10

For a moment the black-bearded Nasta stood with bowed face…

6:56
$1.05

A gasp of wonder and astonishment rose from all those who…

6:58
$1.05

I laughed, or rather tried to.

7:06
$2.10

Chapter 23: I Have Spoken

5:40
$1.05

'Methinks my sister the Queen hath forgotten the chief count…'

6:58
$1.05

And I thank thee, my Lord Incubu…

6:16
$1.05

It is a week since I wrote the above, and now I take up my pen…

6:59
$1.05

Chapter 24: By Another Hand

5:17
$1.05

'At last,' he gasped, with an attempt at a smile…

5:52
$1.05

Since then things have gone very well with us.
