You'll want revenge as much as Sergei, and like him, you won't be given a quick resolution. Brutal vengeance wouldn't be enough to truly undo the damage done.
We're taken through Sergei's grieving process and are ultimately led to a Christian monastery where he finds a mentor agreeing to train him for his revenge. The mentor has a lot to teach us, much of it needing many years to mull over and absorb.
While religion has a role in defining the characters, the book does not push religious ideology. He meets an eccentric old mentor named Socrates, who sets him on dan milliman journeys of socrates spiritual odyssey that will ultimately deliver or destroy him.
Along the way Dan encounters realms of light and darkness, of romance and magic, as he learns what it means to live as a peaceful warrior.
Dan Millman takes listeners on an epic spiritual quest across the world as he searches for the link between everyday life and transcendent possibility. He proceeds to train under a warrior trained in the way of Japanese swordsmanship, a man named Razin.
Razin only reluctantly accepts him as a student.
He then lives at a hermitage, learning to reign in his mind and to respond freely and appropriately to attacks. His teacher at the hermitage, Father Serafim, teaches him to fight, while encouraging him to give up his vendetta.
Finally, he travels abroad to train with a convened collection of sages from various traditions Taoism, Dan milliman journeys of socrates, Judaism, Christianity,etc. Millman's narration clips along, and he does a fine job with period flourishes. A shocking surprise about the fate of Sergei's unborn child and a ham-fisted meeting between Sergei and his rival strain credibility, but Millman's fluid storytelling makes this an easy read.
