“Helden Broken Tongue, the call is upon you. A war ring has been forged. The order comes: gash flesh, gore shield, make iron ring. Glut the wolves and birds of prey with fat and flesh of foe. The Highblade Cohort has gathered. Loyalties ratified in wine before the standard and pledged with our right hand will soon be put to test. Harmast your captain bids you come. I place this geas upon you—follow me faithfully to the place appointed; then your wyrd will be your own.”
As the clans of Sartar and the Far Place rise in rebellion, a life-sick Humakti and his Vingan companion journey to a hill of swords, where the fate of the Kingdom depends on a desperate and ill-matched few.
A tale of death and laughter from the Hero Wars.
