In Heroes Die and Blade of Tyshalle, Matthew Stover created a new kind of fantasy novel, and a new kind of hero to go with it: Caine, a street thug turned superstar, battling in a future where reality shows take place in another dimension, on a world where magic exists and gods are up close and personal. In that beautiful, savage land, Caine is an assassin without peer, a living legend born from one of the highest-rated reality shows ever made. That season, Caine almost single-handedly defeated–and all but exterminated–the fiercest of all tribes: the Black Knives. But the shocking truth of what really took place during that blood-drenched adventure has never been revealed . . . until now. Thirty years later, Caine returns to the scene of his greatest triumph–some would say greatest crime–at the request of his adopted brother Orbek, the last of the true Black Knives. But where Caine goes, danger follows, and he soon finds himself back in familiar territory: fighting for his life against impossible odds, with the fate of two worlds hanging in the balance. Just the way Caine likes it.

We have a King. He is the personal, infinite God, who has created us and redeemed us through His Son, Jesus Christ. He has revealed truth to us. On the basis of what He has said, we are to live our lives as Kingdom people who are present, spiritual members of the Kingdom of God. Our Great King has given us commandments, statutes, testimonies, precepts, and promises. At the same time, He has given us His Spirit to live within us and empower us to live lives to please Him. His love for us and His power in us is beyond anything we could ever imagine or think. What are the things we are to do on a daily basis, to cause us to proceed through this life? The King has given His people a picture of a journey, a pilgrimage. We are to press forward in this life toward our high calling in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14). We do this by walking, running, fighting, trusting, and praying. What does each one of these action words look like in practice? This is what we want to examine in this book. We are going to take the position that someone else has paid a great price to reclaim us and to bring us back from our enslavement to sin and to set us free. Indeed, Jesus did pay it all, and all to Him we owe. Our King is our Savior and Lord, and our lives are to be spent to return His great and sacrificial love and to always live for His glory and honor.
