THE BACK DUSTCOVER:
Sacred Band Goes North - To War!
is the first full-length novel from the notorious "Thieves World"
fantasy universe, where gods still stalk the land, warring with demons
and human sorcerers and trampling unfortunate humanity underfoot.
you like stories of bold brave knights employed in meritorious duty, or
tales of ladies delicate and fair, be warned. Sanctuary-the meanest, seediest
town in all of fantasy-may be too much for you sensibilities. There wizards,
bards and maidens mingle with murderers and thieves, and the fight breaking
out at the next table may be the one that ends your life.
hero of "Beyond Sanctuary" is Tempus, leader of mercenaries
and warrior-servant of Vashanka, god of storm and war. With Niko, Cime,
and the Froth Daughter Jihan, Tempus faces the Archmage Datan and his
unholy followers in a battle for the Rankan Empire's survival and that
of his very soul.
