A warrior decides to desert the battlefield to return home - but this is a decision he may not live long enough to regret...
The Second Battle of Moytura rages between the god-like people of Dana and a demonic race called the Formorians.
The memory of these misshapen ugly creatures has faded from man's memory now, yet tales of their treachery live on in ancient scripts. In this mythological world, men are gods and throw flames in the face of their enemy and their swords can speak to them of their conquests.
After many years of battle, one disheartened warrior deserts the battlefield and his kinsmen to return home. His journey becomes another battle he has to face, and one which he may not survive.
