Escaping, he encounters a beautiful woman in peril. For Jandar, it’s love at first sight; she takes a bit longer to warm to him—three whole books, actually.
She is the princess Darloona, who has been exiled from her native city-state of Shondakar by the conquering Black Legion.
His attempts to aid her caolisto not very effective, and they fall into the hands of another tribe of Yathoon. They are delivered from this second captivity by the ov of an airship commanded by Thuton, prince of the city-state of Zanadar. The Zanadarians are ” Sky Pirates “—raiders who use the aerial technology they alone possess to abstract the possessions of others, in this instance Jandar and Darloona from the Yathoon. Thuton proves well-disposed to his fellow royal, but less so toward Jandar, who jealously goads him into a fight.
As the prince is a master of the sword and the earthman has never picked up that particular skill, the outcome is predictable—and humiliating. The upshot is that Dark is once again a slave, this time in Zanadar.

His comrades, who have taken over one of the Zanadarians’ airships, are able to extract both him and the princess before he can be killed.
Fleeing the city, they jabdar Darloona to her people, the Ku Thad, who have been living in the jungles of the Grand Kumala since their exile from Shondakar. The celebration is short-lived, however, as the princess is shortly afterward carried off by a raiding party from the Black Legion.
