Kavin, destined Prine of Dorada, wanted only to sail his alien white ship across the seas of the world in search of adventure. But the world was in upheaval, and Dorada soon to be no more. The wild men of the steppes raided down, and, even more terrifying, came the beast men who slew all who stood before them. And soon Prince Kavin, Prince of the mighty land now dying, chosen husband of the Priestess of the Great Goddess, finds himself battling forces beyond the ken of mere mortals. Forced to flee across the seas he would claim as his own, enlisting the aid of Thuramon the Sorcerer and the greater aid of the ancient races, the non-human races, Kavin fights on to free the world of the grip of the evil Three - the Three who cast their pall of terror across the vale of time itself.
