Trapped in time, in a dungeon with no way out!

His crippled wife is kidnapped by the witch Georgiana, now allied with the assassin sect Concilium Putus Visum, and transported back to feudal 13th Century France.

He is only one man against the vicious and murderous forces of Hell, unleashed once again in the form of the Biblical shapeshifter Serpents.

Suddenly trapped in an escape-proof dungeon, he must somehow escape and train to be a knight so he can enlist the help of a corrupt count. Along the way, he must overcome his sense of revulsion about his own psychic, shapeshifter powers.

Herleva, mother of William the Conqueror, most powerful woman in all of Europe and also a powerful sorceress, offers him help.

He must also enlist the friendship of an ex Templar knight and survive the military conflict at Bouvines, which shaped Europe. But if he does, what will he find in the mysterious Maze Tower?

If you love the Da Vinci Code, you will adore this richly plotted, writhing romance.

From the Author:

Around the same time I was starting this work, my interest in the paranormal was focused around reincarnation and lycanthropy (werewolves and vampires). I have always loved old Hammer Horror films and particularly the work of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. I have also always been interested in luck, and the constant battle between good and evil, light and dark, and yin and yang; who isn't? My own luck seems to run in phases of waves; periods of days or even weeks of good luck, followed by periods of very bad luck. I mused that some people have luck so bad that it kills them, whereas others seem to lead a charmed life. I decided that my main character, as well as being physically imperfect, must have some kind of rare interaction with luck and the forces of good and evil. From there, I developed the idea that luck might have something to do with the effect of the battle between good and evil: that in fact both Satan and God might both have one hand on the tiller of luck.

During the two years since publishing Ordo Lupus and the Temple Gate, I had read much about 10th and 11th century monastic life - particularly a book by Constance Brittain Bouchard called Holy Entrepreneurs, and an academic tome on the Cathars called Heresy in Medieval France, 1000-1249 by Claire Taylor. I wanted to include this wonderfully complex and rich history in the new novel and there is also an encounter with William the Conqeror's mother. The biggest battle of the 13th Century the Battle of Bouvines also features as one of the highlights and took much work to research for accuracy. So does he escape from an oubliette? You will have to read the novel to find out!
