When a mysterious enemy attacks his adopted nation of Korva, Earthman Carson Napier discovers his own arrival on Venus years ago may have unknowingly triggered the strike. The invaders? trail of death and destruction leads Carson and his beloved princess Duare headlong into battle against a seemingly invincible, primordial race.
