Gonji, the demon-stalked warrior with the soul of his samurai forebears and the heart of his Viking mother, surges on through legend-haunted medieval Europe, seeking the key to his mysterious destiny…
His infamy - and celebrity! - has seen a militant cult spawned by his legend and philosophies. Thus, Gonji must face superstitious persecution from both religious and secular hierarchies, while dealing with deadly human and unknown supernatural assassins dedicated to destroying him and his band of loyal warriors.
Facing almost certain death, Gonji must make a grim decision. His ally, the enigmatic golden werewolf Simon Sardonis, has come to him with an earnest plea for help in France against a monstrous enemy of his own: the brutal, shape-shifting Farouche Clan. These are demonic invaders from another world, with whom Simon shares an eerie kinship. Their savagery overwhelms even Simon's formidable power, and now they threaten the woman with whom he has come to share love. But worse still, the Farouche fiends are the vanguard of a tyrannical, inter-dimensional conspiracy. A conspiracy which has insidiously snared Gonji himself in its age-old web of evil dominance.
But can even the skillful samurai Gonji and the massive werewolf Simon together raise an effective force against such colossal evil, when the armies of their world refuse to help? Is there any force mighty enough to battle another sphere's dark sorcery, when it devours all before it with…a hungering of wolves?
