- DescriptionWelcome to Gor, a parallel Earth where social rms are exotic and the way of life is brutal. In this volume of the Gorean Saga, the deadly assassin Kuurus is intent on a bloody mission of vengeance. His adventure takes him from the caste of the pleasure-slaves, who are rigorously trained in the rules and techniques of sexual ecstasy, to the brutal arenas where humans participate in deadly hand-to-hand combat. He witnesses violence, conflict, and uncertainty, as the inhabitants of Counter Earth are forced to confront their destinies... matter how exalted or debased. Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire. Assassin of Gor is the 5th book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
