After a devastating military defeat, Numantia is ruled by a puppet government for a foreign king. Damastes, the empire's greatest general and the man who led so many to their deaths, languishes in prison awaiting his fate. But even he hears rumours that the powerful wizard Tenedos, the emperor drenched in the blood of his people, is not dead but is amassing a great army to take back Numantia. Suddenly Damastes' skills as a soldier are at a premium: the turncoat government wants him to stand against Tenedos, and Tenedos wants him to lead his army. Forced to escape and flee, Damastes, tired of killing, wants only to return home. But no man can run from his destiny. Find out more about this title and others at www.orbitbooks.co.uk

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Final installment of Bunch's military sword and sorcery trilogy (The Seer King, 1997; The Demon King, not seen), again with regulation plotting and magics, graphic sex, and lots of well-handled, gory action. This one describes the final showdown between the good-guy narrator, General Damastes, recalled from imprisonment and exile, and his former friend, the evil wizard Tenedos. At stake is the soul of Numantia, a kingdom that has been occupied by a foreign power, Maisir, following Tenedos's disastrous invasion attempt. Here, Tenedos wants it all: he's lean, mean, back from the dead, and demon-powered; and only Damastes, who knows Tenedos so well, might stop him. A pale, barely differentiated shadow of what started out as a limited but reasonably satisfying yarn; still, fans of the previous will want to give it the once-over. (Kirkus Reviews)
