The Dark Lands
The great pulp writer Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan the Barbarian, also introduced Solomon Kane to the world: a sombre man who dedicated his life to battling evil in all its forms. Now Markus Heitz brings Solomon Kane's daughter Aenlin to life: join the young adventuress as she follows in her father's footsteps to battle dark forces, gunpowder, steel and magic - in the Dark Lands! 1629.
Despite the relentless conflict of the Thirty Years' War raging in Europe, Aenlin Kane is determined to explore the legacy of her famous father. Aenlin may never have met Solomon Kane, but she shares with him the need to fight for good wherever she can. She and her friend Tahmina, a Persian mystic, have been recruited for a secret mission for the West India Company: they will be part of a motley crew fighting their way behind enemy lines to the southern German town of Bamberg, where the stakes are already burning, ready to immolate those falsely accused of witchcraft.
Hidden by the turmoil of war, demons are openly walking the earth. Soloman Kane once fought such evil with rapier, pistols and his indomitable will. Now Aenlin is preparing to face those demons - and like her father, she will let nothing stand in her way.
