On a mission shrouded in secrecy and suspicion, Ballista must journey The Amber Road to the far north to Hyperborea, back to his original home and the people of his birth. A fearsome, masked warlord attacks, bringing fire and sword against the Angles. Yet not all welcome Ballista's return. Does treachery pose the greatest danger?

The best sort of red-blooded historical fiction . (Andrew Taylor, author of The American Boy).
