AND ONE MAN SHALL LEAD THEM.
On the steppes of Central Asia in the Fourth Millennium B.C., the’Ur are the most powerful of the kurgan clans. This has been so since Adin’s grandfather, Ja, became the first man in history to tame and ride a horse. But Ja has died, and a raid on his burial mound by Schthians has led to a blooc fued between Dahig, the scion of the ruling clan, and Adin, the young, soon-to-be leader of the ‘Ur. But Adin’s wife, Fi’Me, is practicing the dark arts and Adin, leery of her sorcery, takes their son and his childhood sweetheart and embarks on a journey of discovery and to find the place that is calling him from the ground. Traveling from one kurgan tribe to the next, Adin spreads the skill of hourse-riding and the deep and rich history of the tribe. But Dahig is never far behind, and as Adin searches for the place of his destiny, he also knows that the Scythians will stop at nothing to satisfy their lust for vengeance. Intent on building a new city, Adin must prepare his followers for the ultimate battle, an epic struggle where there will only be life. . .or death.
The author, David Uerkvitz, in his search for the origins of his unusual surname, found, through DNA testing, that he is a descendent of a person buried in a kurgan mound more than 5,200 years ago. While doing research on this tribe, he began to fantasize about how living under their circumstances must have been, and wished to breathe life into his ancestor’s bones, thus creating Adin’Ur, protagonist of this unusual novel.
