Though decimating the vaunted Red Kights of the Mongauli Army in a sea of deadly yidoh, the combined tribes of the Sem remain vastly outmumbered.

Meanwhile, Istavan the mercenary's deft covert-op helps destroy the Blue Knights.

Review:

"A rousing tale of intrepid heroes, horrid villains and wicked supernatural creatures." -"Publishers Weekly"
""The Guin Saga" was the most [inspiration for "Berserk"]. I started reading it in junior high and I'm still reading the new volume every month." -"Berserk" creator Kentaro Miura
"Kaoru Kurimoto manages the flurry of situations being set up and resolved like the trick of a putting a hand on a table with fingers spread out, then stabbing a blade between the outstretched digits. The speed and coordination is that amazing." -Scott Green, "Ain't It Cool News"
"A swashbuckling fantasy . . . action is always center stage . . . dreamlike . . . intense." -"The Seattle Times
""This is classic fantasy at its best." -"Book Sense" (Fall 2003 Science Fiction and Fantasy Top Ten)
"Readers should be warned that once you start this journey, it will be nearly impossible to leave it unfinished." -" SFRevu"
"Japan's answer to "The Lord of the Rings."" -"The Globe and Mail"
"This has to be one of the best translations I've yet read. The language is fluid and establishes a strong narrative voice." -James Michael White, "SFReader.com"

"I get a little breathless just typing all that, and it's nothing compared to the experience of reading the Guin books. They're [The books] like Robert E. Howard crossed with manga and a triple espresso." -"Fantasy and Science Fiction
"
""Guin" is epic fantasy as I have come not to know it lately: restless, unapologetic, world-spanning, monster-smashing meat-and-potatoes "fun."" -"Advanced Media Network"
