The Guin Saga is epic heroic fantasy in the same vein as Robert E. Howard's Conan, the Barbarian. More than a hundred books strong and growing, the saga has sold more than twenty-five million copies in Japan. Vertical will publish the first five installments that comprise "The Marches Episode" arc.

Guin is a mighty warrior, who cannot remember his past. His only clue is a leopard mask mystically attached to his head. Joined by the royal twins of Parros, Remus and Rinda; Suni, the simian-girl; and Istavan, the mercernary; our hero must cross the treacherous River Kes and journey into the badlands of Nospherus, where unthinkable dangers lurk. In hot pursuit is a Mongauli army of 15,000, led by the beautiful and dangerous General Amnelis.

Guin, along with twin orphans, Rinda and Remus, try to outrun the pursuing Mongauli army, but are captured and taken before General Amnelis, where they learn of his mission to take all the Nospherus lands.

Continuing the opulently written saga, this second volume acquaints readers further with the vastness and depth of Kurimoto's imagined world.

Stafolos Keep has fallen! The victorious Sem ape-men cheer as columns of black smoke rise from the stronghold. The lords of Mongaul are furious. Such impudence - such success - must not go unpunished; the simian hordes must be exterminated.
Quickly, an expeditionary force is culled from the border patrols. The leader of the elite White Knights, General Amnelis, assumes command. The duchy's troops must venture into the wastelands of Nospherus to seek out the home of the barbarous Sem and mark them for death.
But Amnelis has a second mission as well: recapturing the orphaned royal twins of Parros and their mysterious companion, a warrior with the head of a leopard, who have crossed into Nospherus ahead of the advancing Mongaulis.
In the fell no-man's-land they meet, pieces of a divine puzzle.
