Once he was but a man named Ronin. Trained as a swordsman, endowed with breathtaking skill, he was not destined merely to live and then die in a doomed city beneath a frozen world. Many years have passed since he first ventured beyond the earth's icy crust. Now he possesses powers beyond all imagining – godlike abilities both marvelous and terrible. Now he is revered and feared as saviour and avenger, the tamer of monstrous beasts, the destroyer of the dark angel of Chaos.
Now he is Dai-San, the Sunset Warrior. Gone are the days of fire, ice, and necromancy, and yet there are grave perils in this world – and enemies, who, though once defeated, seek to return, driven by an insatiable need for vengeance. For Chaos must again have its day, and no power in the universe can prevent its terrible reemergence – not even the might of the Sunset Warrior.
