To this king... a kingdom. Since bonding with the sentient X-O Manowar armor, Aric of Dacia has rampaged unchecked, crushing every enemy in his path. But what happens when a one-man war machine must become the protector of an entire people? Aric's skills as king are about to be put to the test, and the result will set off a chain reaction that will lead to one of the biggest confrontations in the history of the Valiant Universe!
