Item description for The Golden Child of Slaine by Mark Paradise...
The Planet Slaine lies in the insidious grip of the Worm, a creature of ancient and sinister origin. Its only desire is to prevent the birth of the mysterious Golden Child and maintain its stranglehold on a planet that it has defiled for centuries. To live and pursue its cravings it needs a human host, but not many men have been able to endure its thirst for death and destruction until it finds Marik. Marik the pirate is the scourge of Slaine, and a wanted man across the whole planet. His name is a by-word for everything that civilization fears and hates. But Marik does not care what anyone thinks about him. He has a death wish, and he is happy to endure the misery of hosting the Worm in return for the infamy and wealth it brings him. Yet everything starts to fall apart for Marik when he promises to pay a blood-forfeit in return for the rights to sack the fabled city of Arnak. Trapped by a destiny beyond his ability to control, and pursued by a promise he does not understand, Marik fights for his life as he hurtles towards what will probably be not just his own death, but the death of the whole planet along with him.
