Von Bek – the soldier of fortune, a survivor who yet finds himself damned... The man whose quest, down through the centuries, is to protect the Grail and do the devil's work – in Hell, upon Earth, to the edge of Heaven – and to the City in the Autumn Stars where all the worlds meet. Dumas, plus metaphysics, plus sorcery – Von Bek is a brilliant, utterly compelling fantasy epic.
