Every two hundred years, Dagos, a savage and evil god who desires complete control of the world, selects a champion to help him escape. Dagos has been imprisoned for fi fty thousand years in Tartarus behind a door that only a human can unlock, but the key has been lost for many years.
So far, all attempts by mortals to free Dagos have failed. Now, Dagos has selected twenty-nine-year-old Neville, a single man living alone and working at Kentucky Fried Chicken, to attempt the escape. If Neville succeeds, he will be granted immortality. Neville discovers that he comes from a long bloodline of great warriors through the ages, and his chances of success are great.
To decline Dagos’ request is not an option. To follow the quest requires a firm and possibly deadly commitment. Neville must not only locate the key to unlock the door, but he must collect the three pieces from his sword. Each item is on a separate island. Each island is scattered around the world, and each item is protected by a savage beast. Neville wonders if the quest will be worth the reward of eternal life.
