|Dray Prescot is an ordinary earthman, born in 1775, raised in the harsh and brutal conditions of the Royal Navy. Shipwrecked on the shores of Africa, caught up by tribesmen and pursued by headhunters, Dray finds himself inexplicably catapulted to the wild fantasy world of Kregen under the suns of Antares. There Dray finds adventure after dizzying adventure, as he struggles to come to grips with his new world.
