Synopses & Reviews
Whom the gods would recruit, they first tick off . . .
Our Hero: The unlikely Paladin, Bahzell Bahnakson of the Horse Stealer Hradani. He¿s no knight in shining armor. He¿s a hradani, a race known for their uncontrollable rages, bloodthirsty tendencies, and inability to maintain civilized conduct. None of the other Five Races of man like the hradani. Besides his ethnic burden, Bahzell has problems of his own to deal with: a violated hostage bond, a vengeful prince, a price on his head. He doesn¿t want to mess with anybody else¿s problems, let alone a god¿s. Let alone the War God¿s! So how does he end up a thousand leagues from home, neck-deep in political intrigue, assassins, demons, psionicists, evil sorcery, white sorcery, dark gods, good gods, bad poets, greedy landlords, and most of Bortalik Bay? Well, it¿s all the War God¿s fault. . . .
Bahzell Bahnakson, one of the Hradani, a race that is despised for their rages, thirst for blood, and generally uncivilized behavior, runs afoul of the War God and ends up in trouble involving sorcery, demons, and a great deal more. Reprint.
