Blurb: 
It is an age of sailing ships and unexplored seas, incomplete maps with entire areas marked "terra incognita." Two joined continents, two different cultures, two opposing religions.

After generations of friction, the leaders of both lands meet to bring an end to the bloodshed. In an historic ceremony, these rulers agree to divide the world between them. The followers of each religion will have half the world to explore, colonize, and tame. There will be trade and, more importantly, there will be peace.

Sadly, this new spirit of fellowship is short-lived. A single tragic accident destroys, in minutes, the peace that took years to build. The world is once more cast into the fires of war, and this time the flames may burn until nothing remains. From the highest lord to the lowest servant, no man or women will be unchanged by the conflict.

But while war rages across both continents, a great quest will defy storms and sea serpents to venture beyond the horizon, where no maps exist -- to search for a land out of legend. It is a perilous undertaking, but there will always be the impetuous, the brave and the mad who are willing to leave their homes to explore the unknown.

Even unto the edge of the world . . .
