The eternal mercenary crosses the Caspian Sea, accompanied by a beautiful slave girl, Adil, to the lands of Transoxiana. There, he finds himself drawn to the armies of Timur the Lame, one of many competing warriors struggling to unite their own clan in the face of Moghul aggression.Under Casca’s guiding hand, Timur slowly rises, defeating his enemies one after the other, until he becomes feared throughout the merciless lands of Asia. Casca’s mission to save Byzantium is always in his mind, however, and no matter how many enemies rear their head, he is determined to steer an increasingly bloodthirsty Timur to turn on the powerful Ottomans.
