On the day that Aldair found that his world had abruptly turned upside-down, his history-changing quest began. And he did not even then know that it was to be a quest.
Aldair had been a true acolyte of the faith when it happened. And then, he found himself an accursed outcast, the one against whom all hands were raised.
His only friends were those who had been his most vicious enemies. His only course led to the lands of horror. And his final goal had to be that most forbidden of all lands, the dwelling place of the dead, that island of total terror known as Albion.
Neal Barrett's novel is an adventure in an unexpected futurity equal in inventive surprises to his highly praised Stress Pattern.
