Synopses & Reviews
Rider Sandman had ever suffered from a temper. He fought against it. In everyday life he deliberately adapted a tone of gentle deliberations, he used courtesy beyond necessity, he elevated rason, all becuase he feared him own anger. His soldiers had known that he was not a man to cross because he had that temper as sudden and fierce as a summer storm. Tall and strong, a real devil.
