Item description for The Guin Saga Book 2: Warrior in the Wilderness by Alexander O. Smith...

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.
“A rousing tale of intrepid heroes, horrid villains and wicked supernatural creatures.” –Publishers Weekly

“The Guin Saga was the most [inspiration for Berserk]. I started reading it in junior high and I'm still reading the new volume every month.” –Berserk creator Kentaro Miura

“This is classic fantasy at its best.” –Book Sense (Fall 2003 Science Fiction and Fantasy Top Ten)

“Readers should be warned that once you start this journey, it will be nearly impossible to leave it unfinished.” – SFRevu

“Japan's answer to The Lord of the Rings.” –The Globe and Mail

“Kaoru Kurimoto manages the flurry of situations being set up and resolved like the trick of a putting a hand on a table with fingers spread out, then stabbing a blade between the outstretched digits. The speed and coordination is that amazing.” –Scott Green, Ain't It Cool News
Author Kaoru Kurimoto, winner of the Edogawa Rampo and Yoshikawa Eiji Awards, lives in Tokyo Japan.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Guin Saga Book 2: Warrior in the Wilderness?

Great action fantasy  Nov 25, 2003
Guin, the mysterious warrior with the leopard's head, leads his allies into the dangerous wilderness of Nospherus, away from the pursuing Mongauli armies. The twin orphans of Parros, Rinda and Remus, struggle to keep up, but are still young teens. Joined by the mercenary Istavan and the little Sem girl called Suni, they battle the beasts of Nospherus until their luck runs out and they are again captured by the Mongauls. Taken before General Amnelis, they soon learn of the Mongauls other mission: to take the Nospherus lands and eradicate all who stand in their way, including the Sem. How can this small band possibly stand against the Mongaul horde before them? With "Warrior in the Wilderness", the saga picks up speed and delivers an action-packed episode that ends with a cliffhanger. Kurimoto's simple storytelling style seems to make this more of a young adult fantasy, but the dark and fantastic world where the story takes place fascinates and lures the reader onward.
