You'll find yourself flipping through these worlds over and over. Click here to watch a video trailer.

Versus: Warriors. Steve Stone is the illustrator of this very cool book. He has worked on hundreds of book covers, most notable Stephen King’s DARK TOWER series and Terry Brooks’ epic fantasy series SHANNARA. In this epic story, ten of the greatest warriors of history meet for the first time. From Viking vs. Aztec Warrior and Samurai v. Gladiator to Medieval Knight vs. Zulu, Versus explores who would triuimph and why, if these fiercest warriors were to engage in deadly battle against one another. Only one can be crowned history's ultimate warrior. Who will it be? Watch a video by clicking here.
