Series: Solomon Kane

Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Solomon Kane has seen many strange things during his wanderings through the heart of Africa, but none stranger than those he finds in Bogonda. A village shows signs of being attacked from the sky, human bones are everywhere and - most terrible of all - he finds a horribly mutilated man, just barely alive, bound to a stake. After being attacked by a winged monstrosity, Solomon learns about the Akaanas and the terrible fate that has befallen the inhabitants of the twin villages of the Bogondi.
