    Daviot, a world of magic faces impending destruction by an ancient curse.
    Magic has proved to be their ultimate undoing.
    Prophecy states that none of their own, would be able to stop "The Cracking".
    The hero of prophecy was awaited.

    A stranger arrives atop an iron horse, from a blinding light. A stranger to all but the woman Liesh.
    Her dreams have been haunted by this stranger's face for years.
    He is the man to take up the sacred "Sword of Braelor" and save the Davioti from their shortsightedness.
    He is The Thunder Rider.

    His past is fog of disjointed memories and illusive images. The only thing real to him is his love for the woman Liesh, for her, he agrees to take up "Braelor's Sword" and make things right.
    A magical stone must be found and restored, to stop their impending doom. The "Stone of Intent", instrumental in causing their plight, the stone was long ago broken in two and hidden away.
    Upon the motorcycle that bears his name, they set out on a quest to retrieve the stone pieces, restore it to its original state and call upon its power in an effort to avert catastrophe.
    Their road is long and difficult. Evil forces behind the scenes, seek to thwart their efforts, forces mortal and immortal.
    The would-be-hero is forced to come to terms with his value system and inborn sense of right and wrong as he counters each and every obstacle that they encounter. He must choose between what he has in the here and now or what he left behind. Choices that will ultimately decide the fate of a world.

    and the address were to order:

    curious enough ?

    I just finished reading Angels and Demons by the same author of The Da Vinci Code, a great book, and have started reading Cry the Beloved Country.

    I don't usually read this much unless I am on vacation, but am kind of on a reading kick lately.

    I just finished Under the Banner of Heaven (about fundamentalist Mormons and the LDS in general), Worth the Fighting For by John McCain, and Lies and the Lying Liars who Tell Them by Al Franken (long plane trip). All excellent. I also read Quicksilver by Neal Stpehenson - not anywhere near as good as his other works, tragically.

    I am starting The Power of Now due to a recommendation from others on this board, and I have a stack of ten magazines to get through.
