In this painting at twilight there is a fantasy city there are huge buildings and roof top torches burn emitting orange smoke and yellow light. One building looks like a futuristic fort or castle with wonderful stone sculptures around the tower. Two guards stand outside at the top of a set of stone steps leading to an entrance. there are some men on horseback nearby. In the foreground, the outer edge of the city are some bare trees and two armed men, maybe infiltrators.

Synopsis for Original Title

Jackal of Nar. A fast-paced epic with enormous scope, believable and appealing characters and an impressively imagined world. The Empire of Nar is being torn apart, the balance of power tipped by the sorcerer Tharn's magic. The Emperor wants control of the magic, Tharn wants to rule the Empire and countless thousands of people are caught up in the struggle. And now the love of Prince Richius's life has been spirited away by Tharn. But all is not what it seems. Richius is a flawed hero pursuing a woman he has met just once. The Emperor is greedy and lazy, while Tharn is a dying man touched by the gods and struggling to use his power for good.
