“Thundering Hooves” is the 7th thrilling installment of the “Sahara Adventure series”, where danger always lurks in the scorching Sahara sands. After a daring escape from the fortress stronghold of the Dulac tribe, Teuns Stegmann and his fellow French Foreign Legion soldiers find themselves embroiled in yet another perilous mission.

When they bring word to the Legion outpost at Dini Salam that the vengeful Dulac princess Brigitte Bonnet plans to unleash deadly gas weapons on Legion forts, tactics must be swiftly devised. Adding to the turmoil, the legendary sword of Dutra has been stolen from Legion headquarters, igniting rebellion amongst Arab tribes across the desert. With hordes amassing under Bonnet’s command, Captain D’Arlan proposes a covert counterstrike. Accompanied by only two hundred men, he ventures into the swirling sands.

Meanwhile, at Fort Laval, Bonnet’s initial attack meets an unexpected twist. All but deserted, the fort holds but a single soldier too drunk to flee. His outrageous tale of the garrison’s departure for Libya leaves the princess reeling. After securing the seemingly abandoned fort, she turns her sights on Fort Petain. Yet Fort Laval holds lethal secrets. When one Dulac warrior escapes the carnage within, Teuns, Fritz and Jack are dispatched to prevent him from alerting Bonnet’s main force, fast approaching Dini Salam. But the trio are swiftly captured by mercenaries in Legion uniforms, deserters who possess the stolen sword. With Teuns as their guide, the deserters seek Bonnet’s army to sell her the sword.

Ever resourceful, Teuns seizes an opportunity to recapture the blade and lead the princess into a trap. But Bonnet is cunning, and the desert holds endless perils. Outnumbered and outgunned, the Legion’s garrison clings desperately to a bold strategy as a massive Arab army swarms around Dini Salam. With Dini Salam’s position seeming hopeless, Le Clerq takes a big risk before dawn’s arrival. A red flare shoots into the sky behind the Arab forces. It is a sign Le Clerq has been waiting for. The action swiftly builds to a dramatic and thrilling climax as Le Clerq and D’Arlan’s forces launch a daring surprise counterattack on Bonnet’s unsuspecting army.
