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. A stunning, epic novel of war, savagery and the fall of the Templars in the tradition of Conn Iggulden, Bernard Cornwell and Manda Scott.
