The novel has been translated into German
Continuing his quest to reach the glorious southern realm of Khurdisan the Golden, Brak, a blond, braided and broadsword-wielding barbarian from the frozen north, crosses the desolate desert of Logol. By chance he meets a duo of royal twins whose throne has been usurped, and seek a champion to restore them. But their motives are dubious, their word untrustworthy, and behind all lurks the menace of the corrupt and evil cult of the demon god Yob-Haggoth, whose followers bear unrelenting hatred towards Brak.
