Jerry Howard was a refugee from death - he and others like him rescued from the distant past by the mighty Oracle. Now, in the Oracle's city of Mera, their only protection from time and death and hell-spawned demons was that rose red city's ancient walls.
Then the Oracle sent Jerry back into time on a mysterious and dangerous rescue mission. His one companion was Killer, a 400-year-old juvenile delinquent from ancient Greece, whose superhuman fighting skills were legendary - even Outside.
But when Jerry and Killer pass beyond Mera's magical North Gate, they will need more than strength to rescue Ariadne and her children - for Mera's vengeful demon enemies are closing in...
