About The Book
The grandson of Genghis Khan, Batu, and his Golden Horde have just begun a ruthless march across Siberia. Batu intends to spread his Mongolian empire all the way to Europe and to conquer the great city of Novgorod. Meanwhile, the Teutonic Knights of Europe spread the Crusades eastward, burning cities one by one in their unstoppable advance. But in the midst of all this fighting, a small village in Nenetsia is attacked, and a simple hunter named Maansi tragically loses the love of his life.
Determined to be reunited with his wife, Maansi travels toward the sea in search of the mythical island of the dead—Buyan. But the path to Buyan is fraught with not only bloodthirsty warriors and religious zealots, but also ancient spirits who have been angered by the war as well as the unforgiving gods of old. Still, desperate to see his wife’s face again, Maansi will not let anything stand in the way of his quest to find Buyan.

Raves and Reviews
"Martin and Xabier Etxeberria have done an amazing job creating this world by combining the Slavic ballads with the history of the Teutonic Knights and the Mongols...Aritz Trueba’s art is dynamic, full of action, and a lot of fun to look at...A beautiful book based on Slavic ballads. Highly recommended if you are looking for something fresh in your mythological stories."
