An excerpt from the book:

Another cascade of arrows whistled into the cavern, and Mike new he had to stop them.

He had pinpointed the location of the warrior with the rifle behind a gnarled clump of brush. He wasn’t so sure about the other two. He’d hoped at least one was out of action, but from the intense fire, there had to be three of them left.

Doggedly, he watched the spot from which the gunfire had come, praying for a clear shot. It was close enough, but he couldn’t just blaze away at them. His supply of lead and powder cartridges was nearly gone, and he wasn’t known as a sharpshooter. Every bullet had to count.

He saw movement to his left and turned, knowing it was too late if the aim was true.
