Crown of the Realm: A White Knight Adventure, #2

Length: 321 pages4 hours


A knight on the run must defend his family without sacrificing his honor.

FRANCE: In the year of grace, 1190.

When the kings of England and France meet at Nonancourt Castle to make final preparations for the Third Crusade, an assassin releases an arrow aimed at the hearts of one of those kings.

The bolt strikes a lady-in-waiting instead. All fingers point toward Drake fitzAlan, a young knight serving under King Richard the Lionheart.

Hunted down by bloodthirsty knights belonging to both kings, Drake first makes haste to secure the safety of his beloved and then returns to the castle to uncover the truth … if he can.

In a citadel where the assassin is still at-large, more will die before the night is out. Meanwhile, Drake has run-ins with princes and fools, each man having motive enough to want Richard dead. Eventually Drake makes his escape from knights and mercenaries alike, all hellbent to capture him.

Just when he thinks he is in the clear, he's kidnapped and made a pawn by powerful men. They give him two false choices, both of which will lead to his undoing, either in the eyes of his king or in the destruction of his soul.

Follow Drake on his journey as he tracks down a network of assassins and traitors while being fêted by monks, troubadours, and charming ladies!
