I find it odd that, out of all the possible ideas for a book cover, they went with "Dhamon awkwardly grabbing his leg in agony while holding a necklace near a river".

It's been years, but I really enjoyed reading the Dhamon Saga and seeing his character development. Plus, Jean Rabe has a real way with fight sequences.

Not for children, there are some passages not necessarily good for anyone. (adult)
