It is 1295. The Christian empire in the Holy Land lies in ruins and Will Campbell has barely escaped with his life.
After years of fighting in the desert sun – and secretly working for peace with the Brethren – Will returns to Scotland to find his homeland under attack by King Edward I of England.
Soon caught up in a bloody conflict, Will is unaware that an even more ominous threat is rising. A warrior king on the throne of France has a desire for supremacy and will stop at nothing to fulfil his twisted ambitions.
