The once beautiful Game has descended into violence and brutality and Buster Tanner, its brightest star, into drunkenness and despair, when a cruel twist of fate recalls him to the team that made him a legend. The Annihilators face the Hand of Doom in a crushing, savage battle for the lucrative trade routes through the heartlands of the barbaric Ourrucheen. To his abject horror and the obvious disgust of both fans and players Buster is called upon to join the dwindling band of warriors upon the field of conflict. Something awakens the sleeping giant of his former glory within the wrecked shell of his body. As if in a dream he turns the game and, with his final breath, snatches victory from defeat’s foul maw. Coach Bailiss leads his stunned team on a wake of epic proportions telling, finally, the story of Buster Tanner. From humble beginnings as the bastard son of Councillor Tanner in the village of Cropping he and his half-brother Blaze join the Agador Annihilators, an elite military team. Through battles and games and friendship with the strange and mysterious Cnihts they grow rapidly as soldiers, as players and as men. From thence ‘Bust-a-skull’ Tanner and ‘The Unstoppable Blaze’ rise to become legends and heroes of the greatest and most chivalrous period of the game against a backdrop of intrigue, exploration, and conflict culminating in the devastating civil war that tore the heart and soul from the Kingdom.
