From the exotic mists of Vedic mythology to the harsh and barbaric Gheddan Empire, the Law of the Sword is carried godlessly into the space age.
Book 2 of THE FIFTH PLANET
The first mission to control the Third Planet has failed, and the Sword Lord of Ghedda, Raven, has been driven out of the ancient Hindu Kingdom of Karakhor and forced to return to the planet Dooma. He takes with him Maryam, princess of Karakhor, who sees him as her lover and a possible savior in the coming battle against the might of Maghalla.
They are pursued by Kananda, First Prince of Karakhor, drawn by love for his star goddess, Zela, and his determination to find the sister he believes has been taken by force.
On the Fifth Planet they are all hurled into a terrible arms race between two warring continents. A planetary cataclysm looms as Kananda and Zela undertake a desperate mission into the heart of the Sword Empire.
For Zela, it is a race against time to save her world. For Kananda, it is a matter of love and honor to find Maryam.
And both seek vengeance against the Sword Lord.
