Six thousand years ago, a war with the malevolent Lucca nearly destroyed civilization on the world of Kalnaroag. What remains is a scattered collection of feudal city-states, most of their past glory lost in the mists of time. And now the Mhoul, an unholy mingling of human and Lucca, seek the return of their dread sires. After surviving a massacre that slaughtered his entire Legion, Morgan leaves his mountain sanctuary to search for the truth about the Mhoul plot. During his journey he is reunited with old comrades in arms---Maximilian, reputed to serve Death herself, and Taurus, captain of the warship Windrider. He also meets the beautiful Princess Celestine, whom he could love, if he just had the time. Hunted by Mhoul agents, Morgan and his companions encounter the Ha ashtari, fierce nomads of the high plains, and the reclusive Centaurs. Caught up in a titanic conflict that will determine the fate of their world, they discover that faith, honor, and courage are still the best weapons of all.
