|Plot Summary of Jackal of Nar - Tyrants and Kings 1|
Prince Richius called the Jackal by his enemies is a recluctant warrior who must choose between serving the aging emperor who rules his country and the young woman
who he loves and who lives in the land he must make war upon. There are scenes of trench warfare where poison gas
is used, magic and intrigue. Marco has uncanny knack in showing the horrors of war and the politics that fuel it and his allusions to the Vietnam war are brilliant.
