Suddenly, a mesmerizing voice whispered through the rain. "You cannot move, and you will do nothing to resist me."
Uurta stood dumbstruck as the rust-red shadow of Jaska the Slayer closed on him. He called on his training but couldn't break free of Jaska's mind control. His only peace was in knowing that when he didn't call out in turn, the others would be alerted. Thunder struck and lightning illuminated murderous eyes as the steel claws of the Slayer's bagh nakh tore through Uurta's throat.
This is just how I like my sword-and-sorcery - bigger than life and twice as noisy. An evil sorcerer rules a tormented land, aided by his loyal assassin, Jaska. Jaska is the sorcerer's puppet, his mind controlled by a spell, convinced that he is a hero. Then the sorcerer sends Jaska after his final victim, the high priestess Zyrella. She breaks the spell that controls him, and he sees the monster that he truly is.
Now Jaska is on a mission to make amends, to protect Zyrella, to free the goddess known as the White Tigress, and to show a certain sorcerer just how big a mistake he has made.
David Alastair Hayden tells a riveting story of gods and magic, war and vengeance, spiced with an undercurrent of passionate, steamy romance. Join Jaska and Zyrella on their quest to battle an army of assassins to prevent a sorcerer from opening the gates to the underworld and plunging the world into darkness. It's a journey you won't soon forget.
