Seiya and his friends have often put their lives on the line to defend humanity and the goddess Athena. But when the deathless army of Hades invades the mortal world, mere human life may not be enough to stop it. To survive the Battle of the Gods, Athena's Knights will need the power of Heaven itself...
That power is embodied in Shaka, the Gold Knight who draws his strength from Buddhism. Beneath a pair of sala trees, where the Buddha died, Shaka makes his last stand against the Specters of Hades. He's prepared to sacrifice everything and face the Gold Knights' most terrifying forbidden technique. What he learns will change the course of battle...and Knighthood...forever!

About the Author
Masami Kurumada has gained worldwide recognition with his KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC (Saint Seiya) manga, which has been translated into several languages and was a major hit in South America and Europe. KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC was originally intended as a boys title but the incredible artwork and slightly feminine looking male characters drew in female readers as well. The manga was first serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine, then went to span 28 graphic novels, 114 anime episodes, 4 movies, a very successful toy line, and a videogame!
