'The Dog Hunters' is the first of the epic Adventures of Llewelyn and Gelert. While Welshmen are fighting off English invaders, Prince Llewelyn is forced to study Plato. But then a mighty Chinese war fleet turns up, offering to annihilate Wales’s hated enemy.
Their price? Llewelyn’s oldest friend, the mighty wolfhound, Gelert.
Boy and dog are stolen in the night and dragged across storm tossed oceans and scorpion-infested deserts in a nightmare journey involving flying dogs, berserk baboons, and thousand-year-old sailors.
Thoughts of escape dissolve when the young prince meets Feiyan, a bewitching, angry girl with a secret agenda of her own.
But just as he takes up the cause of the Jiang freedom fighters against the remorseless forces of the Emperor, Llewelyn discovers the horrifying truth behind their plans for Gelert.
