The Guts of a Beggar
Albion the Wayfarer and his bodyguard Kell, a regegade princess of the Lhor empire, are stranded on Earth. The lyrinsa, an alien artifact by whose music Albion travels the Way, has been damaged by the demon armies of Golgotha. Albion and Kell enlist the aid of Carlin Overstreet, a guitar repairman who has never seen anything like Albion's lyrinsa. When Boris Davis comes to Carlin's house to pick up his guitar, he launches a series of circumstances into motion that lead him to the Great War, the Time Lords of Atalan, and to Sword-breaker, a fierce dragon warrior who gives Boris Davis his life, and who gives him her heart.
