Series: Journeys of the Catechist
Herdsman Etjole Ehomba has found the one sea captain courageous enough to brave the Kraken-haunted waters of the impassable Semordria. But even if the beautiful Stanager Rose can guide the Gramsketter through oceanic realms of captive winds, seaweed people, and the isles of the Faceless, the tribesman's voyage will not be over. For Ehomba and his companions--the brash swordsman Simnaibn Sind, the deadly cat Ahlitah, and the huge, shaggy man-beast Hunkapa Aub--must cross yet another continent in their search for the beautiful, kidnapped Visioness Themaryl. The perils ahead will be greater than any they have yet faced: armies of murderous skeletons, prairies burrowed by invisible beasts, deserts where Hell's most hideous demons prospect for souls, and mountains infested with berserk giants.
And at the farthest end of the world waits Themaryl's captor, Hymneth the Possessed: the insane, sadistic necromancer who holds his kingdom in a grip of unspeakable horror. Ehomba's lore, determination, and wondrous weapons are no match for Hymneth's unstoppable evil. Indeed, Etjole Ehomba already knows the prophecy: His quest is doomed to failure, and if he faces Hymneth, Ehomba will die...
Unless somehow, the simple herdsman can ask the questions that can answer Death itself.
