In an ambush by the Slave Traders, young Jason Cullinane's friend and mentor Valeran is killed. In panic, Jason runs away.
While Jason's friends and family don't blame him, Jason feels overwhelming shame.  In an attempt to prove to himself and others that he is no longer a "coward", he sets out to kill the leader of the Slaver's Guild, who has been seeking revenge on Jason's famous father, Karl Cullinane.  When Karl finds out about his son's dangerous plans,  he leaves home on a rescue mission.  More complications arise and new challenges.

About the Author

Joel Rosenberg (1954-2011) was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and was raised in eastern North Dakota and northern Connecticut. He attended the University of Connecticut, where he met and married Felicia Herman.

Joel's occupations, before settling down to writing full-time, have run the usual gamut, including driving a truck, caring for the institutionalized retarded, bookkeeping, gambling, motel desk-clerking, and a two-week stint of passing himself off as a head chef.

Joel grew up reading Robert A. Heinlein, L. Sprague de Camp, Gordon R. Dickson and Rafael Sabatini, and found himself becoming a writer pretty much as a natural outcome of such early influences. His fantasy series include the New York Times bestselling “Guardians of the Flame” series, “Keepers of the Hidden Ways” series, “D’Shai” novels and two “Mordred’s Heirs” novels. He is survived by his wife Felicia and their daughters Judy and Rachel.

The adventures of Karl Cullinane and his friends continue as they struggle to create and keep a kingdom free from slavery. The former game players from Earth have brought their 20th century morality with them, and slavery is abhorrent. That makes them enemies of just about everyone, especially the Slavers Guild. Will Karl, who seems to find ways to win every time, win out against the Slavers Guild determined to kill him? Very enjoyable fantasy.
