The heroic John Daker makes a triumphant return in this second installment of The Eternal Champion Sequence—a classic staple of the sword and sorcery genre
As Erekosë, the Eternal Champion, John Daker slew the human race that had betrayed his ideals. And loved Ermizhad, the Eldren princess.
Then the voices called to him and he was powerless to resist. As Fate’s soldier, the Eternal One, his lot was to vanquish tyranny. Sent tumbling through the corridors of eternity, he was transformed.
Now he is Urlik Skarsol, Prince of the Southern Ice, and he must take up the Black Sword and conquer the powers of Evil before he can rediscover Ermizhad, the Eldren princess—and know peace once more.
