On a perilous journey that takes them through beautiful Greek islands and treacherous Roman streets, Hubert and Edmund find the adventures of their lives are just beginning. Set upon by pirates, betrayed by allies, challenged to a deadly joust, and trapped between warring political factions, the squires learn there is only one real test of honor: remaining true to friends. National Book Award nominee Michael Cadnum re-creates the sharp clash of swords and the pounding force of lance blows in this carefully researched tale of warriors in the Middle Ages. This sequel to The Book of the Lion is read with gripping authority by Ron Keith.

Professional reviews

"Legend, romance, savagery, and ruth-lessness are all combined in this tale of the Holy Crusaders in the Middle Ages. As historically accurate descriptions illuminate the story, Ron Keith brings to life all of Squire Hubert's inner conflicts in his first-person account of a perilous journey carried out in God's name. Through tests of honor, service to the king, and making the choice of returning to England or staying with his lady, Hubert is constantly questioning himself and his manhood. Keith expertly captures this sequel to THE BOOK OF THE LION and makes even jousting sound romantic. Fans of the life and times of kings, knights, and princesses will love this continuing tale. D.L.M.
