    When the fireball hit the cruise ship, Ricardo Carillo was already on his way out - a terminally ill language professor. He regained consciousness as a well man in the desert...only it wasn't a desert on Earth, and he was called Markasset, a master swordsman, son of a powerful leader, and a man on the run, accused of murder and the theft of a precious, sacred jewel. With the aid of Keeshah, a great war-cat with which he shared a telepathic link, he set out to clear his newfound name....

    For Ricardo Carillo, taking over the life of the swordsman Markasset on the desert world of Gandalara had its compensations: a strong young body, a beautiful fiancée, and a mighty telepathic warcat named Keeshah, who obeyed his every command. It also had its problems. Markasset had many enemies, and one was out for blood. So Ricardo and Keeshah left Raithskar to join the Sharith (the warrior brotherhood of warcat riders). But trouble followed....

    Somewhere in Eddarta, stolen by a treacherous assassin, lay the Ra'ira, the most precious jewel of the burning desert world of Gandalara. Armed with the steel sword of Serkajon, Rikardon and his telepathic warcat Keeshah seek the sacred stone. With the aid of Tarani, a beautiful illusionist with a mysterious past, they make a daring raid on Eddarta's royal citadel - to rescue the gem before its awesome powers can be used for destruction.

    The stunning conclusion to the Gandalara Cycle, this book reveals the nature of the world Ricardo Carillo (now Rikardon) and Antonia Alderuccio (now wholly Tarani) were thrust into. They come face to face with the reason they were brought to Gandalara and must accept the responsibility of saving the world that gave them a second life.
