In this painting by Geoff Taylor the scene is set in a valley in a mountainous region, waterfalls tumble from the high rocky terrain. In the valley seven riders on horseback assemble with spears and shields, there are some rich green mosses and trees. A vision of a huge eye, or a black orb reflecting dark light akin to an eye.


Servants of Ark

Synopsis for Original Title

The Centre of the Circle. Luke was an extraordinary young man. King's son, child of magic, heir to a destiny prepared for him centuries ago, he had always been thought unusual - even by his mentor, the wizard Ferragamo. Sheltered and protected by his family, Luke had been free to follow his own nature. But when the ancient evil that had almost overcome his father many years ago threatened Ark once more, reaching out in a massive network of foul and vicious magic, Luke must put himself to work. Aided only by a stranger - a bizarre young girl whose nature he already seemed to know - Luke was forced to challenge the armies of darkness, and confront the awesome heritage that had long awaited him.
