Escape for a time to the kingdom of Mercia…
“My sword is dying.”
King Andreas was confident, bold, courageous…until his sword–the living symbol of his power–began to crumble in his hands.
With his brother Jon by his side, Andreas has little time to find out why the sword, passed down through a hundred generations, is failing now. The answer he finds may save his kingdom, but at a terrible price.
