'I am the Eternal Champion and I pursue a cosmic doom. I am the Eternal Champion and my destiny is set for me, my destiny is war and death, my destiny is fear...'
Trapped in a timeless existence, doomed to fight forever, John Daker is the Eternal Champion. The defender and destroyer of justice throughout the ages. The hero of heroes on a quest for truth that will lead him to the dark heart of fate.
Haunted by memories of too many battles waged during infinite lifetimes, possessed by myths and ambitions of men in every realm, the Eternal Champion has taken fate into his own hands. Boldly he ventures into spheres unknown to search for his lost love, the beautiful Ermizhad, and for the key that will free him from the psychic captivity of endless incarnations. It is a journey that will take him beyond the known corridors of existence. On a dark ship piloted by a blind helmsman, amid the slave stalls of the Cannibal Ghost Women, through the tunnels of doom and the planes of hope... and into the heart of evil itself.
To defy his own destiny and meet the ultimate challenge, the Eternal Champion must stand and fight the darkest battle in the history of the world.
