Angus Wells has imagined a magnificent new novel of vengeance, courage, and adventure–an electrifying tale of a noble warrior willing to lay down his life in the name of honor…. Aided by the dark magic of an evil sorcerer, a merciless army seeks to conquer the peaceful province of Chaldor. After Chaldor’s king meets his death in battle, his queen urges the region’s fiercest warrior, Gailard the Highlander, to carry out one final mission. She asks–and Gailard consents–to protect the royal daughter, Princess Ellyn, until she is old enough to gain her hereditary powers and win back her father’s kingdom.
