Spiritdancer: The Blade of Baresi follows the story of a Baresian swordsman named Kallias as he pursues his sister’s kidnappers. His pursuit leads him into the strange land of Marisko, where nearbeasts and sea monsters hunt men. Here Kallias meets the last of the rekinnder race, a beautiful changeling named Dealla. She accompanies him on his journey. Despite speaking a different language and belonging to an exotic race, Kallia trusts her. To prevent a local prophecy, Kallias trains a non-conventional army to help fight against the forces of the mad magician holding his sister. Will Kallias defeat the mad sorcerer and her minions? Will he recover her sister with the help of a strange new ally? Spiritdancer is an exciting magical adventure like you’ve never read before.
Luthie M West has created a new fantasy world with Spiritdancer, and fans can expect more fantasy stories from this world in the future.
