KANE – The Mystic Swordsman commands the fleet of an island empress – a ravaged ruler bent on bitter revenge.
Once Efrel was the beautiful consort of a king. Now she is a hideous creature who lives only for revenge.
She has allies to aid her, but only Kane, the Mystic Swordsman, can rally her forces for battle. Only he can deliver the vengeance she has devised in her knowledge of black magic and in her power to unleash the demons of the Deep.
