Samandahl Rey was a loner, a wandering ex-soldier whose sense of responsibility extended only to himself and to his friend, Roiya Sintor - until the Sigil was forced upon him, a brand of vast power that changed his destiny forever. Now the first daughter of Delassia needs his protection, his worst enemy is about to ask for his help, and the entire Planetary Union is depending on Sam to free its citizens from the tyranny of the vile, lizardlike Saurian race. Sam's about to find he had no idea what the word `responsibility' meant. Finally, after hundreds of years, the interstellar war between the human race and the reptilian warriors known as the Saurians has come to a head. Humanity has launched a last-ditch offensive led by Samandahl Rey, a blue-collar soldier-of-fortune branded with the Sigil of Power, the universe`s greatest weapon. Victory is assured - until Rey suddenly finds himself mysteriously transported to another world. Now he must find his way back home - and fast - before the entire galaxy falls under Saurian rule.
