Summary (From the publisher):

Swordsman without equal, implacable foe of all that is evil - Solomon Kane.

"While evil flourishes and wrongs grow rank, while men are persecuted and women wronged, while weak things , human or animal, are maltreated, there is no rest for me beneath the skies, nor peace at any board or bed."

In a city of the living dead, in a jungle empire ruled by a vampire queen, in a land where manlike things with the wings of huge bats prey on humans, Kane's indomitable will and limitless courage carry him into battle against inconceivable horrors. Driven by irresistible impulses he himself does not understand, fated never to call any land home, Solomon Kane continues on his endless quest, and cannot be swerved from it, even if it leads to the gates of Hell itself...
