"To The High Redoubt is an engaging, epic fantasy adventure written by the creator of the widely-read series of novels about the immortal vampire known as Le Comte de Saint-Germain. In his quest for power, Bundhi, Lord of Darkness and stealer of souls, has taken family, vision and freedom from Surata, the last surviving adept in tantric alchemy, before selling her into slavery in a distant land. But he has underestimated the depth of Surata’s power and he could not foresee that destiny would bring her a champion, Arkady, soldier of fortune and destined hero. As their mutual trust deepens and the wellspring of power from which Surata draws her magic is steadily revealed, the two form an unbeatable force as they challenge their enemy in the very heart of his empire."--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
