Chieftain of Andor

“Great entertainment of epic scope” – Poul Anderson

An outcast, beleaguered and betrayed. Now, he will live again…

Robert Cleve does not belong. On Earth, he is out of his depth – a semi-barbarian, an atavist in the modern world.

But one day, he answers an ad that will change his life forever.

He is offered an opportunity to live in another man’s body – on another planet, many parsecs away. A man with no ties, decisive mind, and sound body, Cleve is selected to take over the body of warrior chief Doralan Andrah, who is pivotal on his world of Andor, but whose mind is dying.

Cleve’s adjustment to the semi-primitive world is hard and fast – just how Cleve thrives.

He quickly adapts to the new body and skills, learning to become the warrior he knew he always could be.

But his memories of Earth and our treatment of sorcery leaves him vulnerable in a way he never anticipated.

Soon, he finds himself surrounded by a cloud of confusion, assaulted from all sides by unfamiliar and unalloyed powers.

His odyssey begins into the deepest depths of Andor, but he is woefully underprepared for the nameless terrors that await him…
Chieftain of Andor is a gripping sci fi/fantasy adventure, as one man finds himself beset from all sides in a world that is not his own. Will he thrive, or will Andor claim him as its prize?
