JP Tate’s reinvention of the Epic Fantasy saga as a political allegory. No flying dragons, no elves, and no magic pixie dust. This is serious Adult Fantasy with something to say. The second volume of this allegorical saga begins twenty years after the end of the first volume. Hereweorc, the son of Ealdræd of the Pæga, emerges as one of the leaders of the Pæga ethnic resistance. Informed and inspired by the campfire tales told by his soldier-for-hire father, the young man is a serious threat to the ideological ruling caste. But to Clænnis, the girl who is Hereweorc’s apprentice in the study of beadu-cræft (the craft of skill and strength in war), he is a strict taskmaster and the object of her erotic desire. At the same time the story of Ealdræd's wife, the formidable Menghis warrior woman Eiji of the Kajhin, continues as she departs from Aenglia with three companions. Eiji has resolved to return to the distant steppes of her homeland. The many dangers on the long road ahead of her will make the journey more than perilous; some would say that her goal is impossible to achieve. Eiji will have to fight her way across two continents in the quest to reach her native soil, facing hazards both natural and apparently supernatural. As their two stories unfold, Hereweorc and his comrades in the resistance must find a way to free the Pæga clan from the political oppression they suffer, and Eiji must find a way to survive as she travels across the known world. Prologue: “For the World is Both Large and Small”. Chapters: 1. No Serfdom in Aenglia. 2. No Brotherhood but that of Our Fathers. 3. The Bones of Kardes Iblis. 4. To Hold the Banner Aloft. 5.
