'Sendatsu is a hunted man. His people, even his own father, want him dead. Cast out of his home, he finds himself in a strange new land, desperate to find a way to return to his children.
'Alone in the land of Vales, Sendatsu is forced to rely on his talents as a fighter to survive. His skills are welcomed by two fugitives - Huw and Rhiannon - who are desperate to alert the peaceful people of the Vales of an impending invasion. When no one will believe them, Sendatsu becomes the wildcard in a fight for freedom.
'Three centuries of lies and deceit are about to burst into bloody life around Sendatsu - when the last thing he wants is to be a hero.' (Publisher's blurb)
