SWORDS, SORCERY, SPECTACULAR ADVENTURES
As Tiana of Reme, illegitimate daughter of a murdered Duke and foster-child of Caranga, the greatest of the pirate captains, embarks on a bizarre quest when a captured Narokan merchantman - and a severed hand - take her to treacherous, alien lands.
"Not since Jirel of Joiry has there been a sword-wielding heroine like Tiana Highrider. For a long time the field of sword and sorcery writing has been waiting for a swordswoman who can stand beside Conan, Brak, the Grey Mouser... It is good to know that this is only the first of what I hope will be many adventures to come." - Andre Norton
