Vallon #2: Imperial Fire
The mercenary Vallon is sent by the defeated Byzantine emperor on a secret and near-impossible quest to the distant land of Song Dynasty China, seeking the destructive might of a new weapon: gunpowder. He is accompanied by a squadron of highly trained soldiers, the learned physician Hero, hermit-like tracker Wayland, and young, ego-driven upstart Lucas. All have their own reasons for going, all have secrets. The quest takes them across treacherous seas and arid deserts, into the uncharted land of mountains and plains beyond the Silk Road.
