TEN THOUSAND NOBLE WARRIORS GUARDED IT BY NIGHT AND DAY FOR A THOUSAND YEARS

THE BLACK STAR

It was rarer and more beautiful and more precious than any piece of mineral, and its dark glory outshone the lights of the heavens. The Gods had wrought it in the Country of the Immortals, and no other thing like it had ever been upon the earth.

No Emperor could hold the Throne without the Black Star. And now it was missing.

The evil Green-Robed One who had usurped the Throne would use his darkest powers to reclaim it -- and the young warrior fleeing across the embattled land with his beautiful lady to save this treasure of all the world would know the torments of the damned. . . .
