On the far-off planet of Tékumel®, the Empire of Tsolyánu has enjoyed a comfortable dominance for centuries. However, Baron Áld of the neighboring nation of Yán Kór seeks to bring that dominance to an end by waging a bloody war for vengeance, driven by grievances both old and new.
Trínesh hiKétkolel, an officer in the Tsolyáni army, is charged with defending the empire against the Baron's forces. After capturing a remote fortress, his command is suddenly thrown off-course when he captures enemy agents who know of a weapon that could decide the war for Yán Kór. When his soldiers and prisoners are plunged into the subterranean ruins of the ancients, Trínesh and his enemies must form an uneasy truce if they are to survive. What this means for the war raging above them–and for the fate of Tékumel–not even the gods can tell.
This edition includes a new foreword by James Maliszewski.

About the Author

M.A.R. Barker (1929-2012) created the world of Tekumel, the setting for his novels and games. Inspired by Indian, Mayan, Aztec and other non-European mythologies and cultures, Barker wove these together with his own ideas to imagine an amazing science-fantasy setting. A Fulbright Scholar, Barker went on to teach at McGill University in Montreal and then at the University of Minnesota. A long-time historical game player, in 1975 Barker created a role-playing game, Empire of the Petal Throne after playing Original Dungeons & Dragons. After that, he wrote several novels, including The Man of Gold and Flamesong, both of which were published by DAW Books in the 1980's. His work is available again through the efforts of The Tekumel Foundation, established in 2008 to preserve Barker's creative legacy.
