Charged with recovering The Shintae, an ancient relic of mystical properties, the Maraén warrior, Kaér, is surprised by the enemy and, almost within reach of safety, he is left for dead. The object is taken from him and once more he must travel deep into the Cantaén Mountains. There, with his companion Angharad, he faces great danger, adventure, and all-out war before his arduous task can be completed. Standing in his way is Sartae, an antagonist whose evil ambitions know no bounds, a leader whose cruelty and hatred is legendary. As the mission progresses, they receive help from the most unlikely of sources, but in the end, they must use all their skill and knowledge to keep themselves alive. As the venture races to its explosive climax, even this may not prove sufficient.Hill, Brian is the author of 'Shintae ' with ISBN 9781413783247 and ISBN 1413783244.
