Venture with her to the wicked city of Ourdh, to rescue an innocent heiress whose fortune flames a murderous lust.

Journey 4,000 years to a future world, where her cunning and courage save stranded wayfarers from planetary war.

But be warned – for the right price, Alyx will serve the Devil himself!
