"In the land that was southern England five thousand years ago, Brennis Gehan Fifth, Lord of Valdoe, driven by the sinister forces of his own heritage, is planning the genocide of the nomadic tribes who impede the spread of his empire. With his army swelled by foreign mercenaries, he prepares to march through the snows to annihilate the nomads in their winter camp. Spurring the Flint Lord's drive for conquest is his passion for his beautiful, decadent sister-a drive and a passion which lead inexorably to catastrophic consequences. Word of the Lord of Valdoe's intentions has already reached his prey, but when the nomad chieftain is killed in a hunting accident, his successor does not heed the warning. In all the tribes, only Tagart understands the danger and is strong enough to face the Flint Lord. But first he must win the battle of leadership, waged according to ancient and ruthless laws. The campaign he then inspires makes a gripping and splendid story of desperate courage."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
