When Hunter discovers that he possesses the power to absorb the skills and traits of the people around him – and to transfer his skills and traits to others – Hunter becomes the hunted. For the immortal King Tykus will stop at nothing to destroy him…or to brainwash him into becoming the kingdom’s ultimate weapon.
Fleeing the kingdom, Hunter meets a woman with the same terrible power…an exiled master swordswoman named Vi. A wise-cracking, butt-kicking, badass warrior, she has one rule: keep up with her…or die.
Now Hunter must survive Vi’s brutal training regimen to become a master swordsman. If he succeeds, he’ll have a chance at fighting back against the all-powerful King Tykus. If he fails, his enemies will surely kill him. That is, if Vi doesn’t do it first!
