Publisher's Summary

For the first time in more than 15 years, Ben Bova returns to the adventures of Orion - hunter, warrior, assassin, and time-traveler. Created by Aten, one of the god-like descendants of the human race 50,000 years in the future, Orion is forced to travel throughout space-time to do his Creator's malevolent bidding.
In this audio exclusive, Aten sends Orion to the Britain of the Dark Ages, after the Roman legions have left and the island is being invaded by Saxons and other barbarian tribes. A young nobleman, Arthur, is struggling to bring the petty Celtic warlords together to resist the invaders. Aten commands Orion to assassinate Arthur and allow civilization in Britain to die. Instead, Orion - aided by his love, the Creator Anya - joins with Arthur to fight the encroaching darkness as they strive to keep Britain free.

What the Critics Say

"Stefan Rudnicki forcefully portrays Orion, Bova's hunter, warrior, assassin, and time-traveler hero...In this audio-exclusive production, Rudnicki clearly defines voices for the various characters, giving them verbal mannerisms that include slow and rapid speech patterns, high-pitched inflections, and well-paced pauses." (AudioFile)
"...a rip-roaring good story that draws from a more grounded version of the Arthurian mythos to good effect." (Publishers Weekly)
