Westborough: Tatnuck Bookseller hosts author Jon F. Merz
November 9, 2013
Nov. 9, from 3 – 5 p.m., Jon F. Merz, author of “The Undead Hordes of Kan-Gul,” book 1 in the new Shadow Warrior saga, will be at Tatnuck Bookseller, 18 Lyman St., Westborough.
In the book, a young ninja in a fantastic land of dreams and nightmares must face an army of zombies to save a beautiful sorceress. Ran, a newly minted shadow warrior, is set loose on a musha shugyo, a wandering quest, whereby he must travel alone and hone his skills.
Journeying aboard a merchant vessel, he hears tales of a mysterious lord believed to have the dead for his servants. Soon these tales prove all too real as Ran comes to the aid of Jysal, a beautiful sorceress, whose undeveloped power gives her the ability to heal a land – or destroy it. But, the Lord Kan-Gul also covets Jysal's power, and when Kan-Gul sends an army of the undead to take Jysal by force, Ran is faced with the ultimate warrior's choice: save himself, or face down a horde of enemies that cannot be killed for the simple reason that they are already dead!
