Overview

Relentless, fast-paced action set in a pitiless world of swords and sorcery where only the most ruthless and most cunning may hope to survive.
Follow the calculating and lethal Artemo, called the Killer of Men, and the brutal but charismatic Horsa, self-styled Man of Honour, as they carve intertwining paths through lands where acts of despicable evil are performed in pursuit of noble goals and where heroism is likely the last resort of a fool. They have loyal friends and deadly enemies, though friendships may prove dangerous and enemies turn useful allies, at least for a time: lovelorn and dashing Melas; steadfast and calm Sighere, the song-singer; Antileon, the ambitious and reforming Young King; Nestor the sinister and disturbing sorcerer-philosopher – these are only some of those whose fates will depend on the shifting loyalties and fortunes of Artemo and Melas.

No less dangerous than the men are the women: the witch-queen Hecate in her covering of living serpents; decadent and sensuous Zolyana, proud princess of the ancient City of Sin; virtuous, beautiful but pragmatic Xanthippe; the alien prophetess Nyarla – all have crucial parts to play.

Sinister sorceries and fell monsters abound, though perhaps the greatest horrors are born in the minds of men.
This is a road like no other. Dare you travel?

Meet the Author

David Hunter was born in Scotland and his life has gone steadily south from that point. Handicapped by an English education, his historical career low-points include: hole-digger, stone-trundler, sales monkey and can-carrier. Today he is responsible for the misdelivery of a substantial quantity of the nation's post. His delusions of adequacy now extend to imagining himself a writer. His stories might appeal to those folk who hanker after some old-fashioned, fast-paced sword and sorcery, but who think the likes of Howard and Martin are a bit too lily-livered. If you just buy one of his stories, he recommends The Berserk and his Wife, although he'd be very pleased if you liked it enough that you bought others too.
