Overview

Ronin called no man master.
He was the finest swordsman of the Freehold, as sharp and deadly as his blade. Yet as the ancient city faltered, Ronin alone refused to pledge himself to any of the powerful Saardin who ruled the crumbling underground world of levels.
But now dark magic was loose in the world. As the ravings of the Magic Man foretold doom, Ronin and his lover, the sensual K'reen, were swept into a maelstrom of treachery, violence, and sudden death.
Their only hope lay in the lost scroll of the Ancients. And the desperate search led Ronin down into the very bowels of the earth, and up again, to the barrier of Freehold, where the endless ice began . . . .

Meet the Author

Eric Van Lustbader (he dropped his middle name, Van for several years due to a confusion about his last name) was born and raised in Greenwich Village. He is the author of more than twenty-five best-selling novels, including "The Ninja, "a N.Y. Times bestseller for an astounding 24 weeks, in which he introduced Nicholas Linnear, one of modern fiction's most beloved and enduring heroes. His "New York Times" bestselling novel, "The Testament," was published in September, 2006 and in paperback in August, 2007. It received rave reviews from such notable thriller writers as Nelson DeMille, Steve Berry and Joseph Finder, among others.
His novels have been translated into over twenty languages; his books are best-sellers worldwide and are so popular whole sections of bookstores from Bangkok to Dublin are devoted to them. "The Ninja" was sold to 20th Century-Fox and the producers Richard Zanuck and David Brown. It is now in pre-prduction.
In 2004, Mr. Lustbader was chosen by the estate of the late Robert Ludlum to continue the Jason Bourne novels. "The Bourne Legacy" (2005) and "The Bourne Betrayal" (2007), both instant "New York Times" bestsellers, garnered rave reviews.
He is also the author of two successful and highly regarded series of fantasy novels, "The Sunset Warrior Cycle "and "The Pearl Saga,"
Besides "The Other Side of the Mirror" in the bestselling" THRILLER" anthology, he has written a number of short stories, screenplays and novellas. Three of the short stories appeared in 1999: "Hush," in "Off The Beaten Path: Stories of Place" for Farrar, Strauss and Giroux, "Slow Burn," in "Murder And Obsession" for Delacourt Press, and "An Exultation of Termagants" in themillennial supernatural mega-collection "999" for Avon Books. A short novel, "Art Kills, "was published by Carroll & Graf in December, 2001.
Mr. Lustbader is a graduate of Columbia College, with a degree in Sociology. Before turning to writing full time, he enjoyed highly successful careers in the New York City public school system, where he holds licenses in both elementary and early childhood education, and in the music business, where he worked for Elektra Records and CBS Records, among other companies. He was the first writer in the US to write about Elton John, and to predict his success. As a consequence, he and Elton and Bernie Taupin, Elton's lyricist, became friends. Writing in "Cash Box" Magazine, he also predicted the successes of such bands as Santana, Roxy Music, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, David Bowie, and The Who, among others.
In his spare time, Mr. Lustbader serves on the Board of Trustees, the Executive Committee, and is Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee of the City & Country School in Greenwich Village. He also tends his prized collection of Japanese maples and beech trees (which have been written up in "The New York Times "and" Martha Stewart's Living"). He is a Second-Level "Reiki" master. He and his wife, the author Victoria Lustbader, reside in New York City and Long Island.

Years ago when I first read this series it blew me away. I believe this series most definitly sets the standard for what a fantasy novel should be. In fact, I think I'll start it again.

I'm 26 now, I read this trilogy when I was in my early teens. I have read hundreds of books before and after The Sunset Warrior but the fantasy/sci-fi/Samuri theme stands out as incredibly unique and special. The detail of the world that Lustbader created can still be pictured in my mind. So much so that I just happened to look it up to see if the book was still available. It's a unforgetable page turner for young readers, and a trilogy of truely great fantasy for anyone to lose themselves in.
