A wounded knight awakens alone on a hillside. His only memory is that of a mighty battle – but there has not been a battle in this place for more than a hundred years.

Tired, hungry and alone, the knight must rely on the help of others if he is to survive. Kindness takes him to the magnificent city of Zamerkand, but what lies inside the city gates will leave his life in more danger than ever.

Safety can only be found in the ranks of the mercenary army known as the Red Pavilions. But joining up is only the beginning of an extraordinary quest for the man who calls himself Soldier – a quest for revenge, for truth and for his own identity.
