Ten years ago, the greatest army in Christendom was slaughtered at Crécy. Archer Thomas Blackstone stood his ground and left that squalid field a knight. He has since carved out a small fiefdom in northern France, but the woulds of war still bleed and a traitor has given the King of France the means to destroy the English knight and his family. As the traitor´s net tightens, so the French King´s army draws in.
Blackstone will stand and fight. He will defy his friends, his family and his king. He may yet defy death, but he can´t defy his destiny: MASTER OF WAR.
