During the hot summer of 1389 near the village of Leulinghem in northwestern France, powerful lords have gathered on behalf of their respective kings to hammer out a truce that will not only serve the interests of both sides, but also aid in saving Christendom from the latest and most dangerous threat from the east – the Ottoman Turks.But, of course, the devil lies in the details.

Recent political turmoil at the royal court has raised a curtain of suspicion between the two leaders of the English delegation – the king’s uncles John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, and Thomas of Woodstock, Duke of Gloucester. So, when the brothers openly differ on the issue of a joint English-French crusade against the Turks, the resulting tensions run so high that a scandal involving Gaunt, a dubious relic and one of his squires threatens to overturn the peace talks and disgrace the duke.For fifteen-year-old Geoffrey Hotspur, ward of the Duke of Lancaster, the stakes are equally high.

With a place in Gaunt’s famous hall for squires on the line, he must not only serve his lord well in his new rank of relic-keeper, but also redeem himself for a lapse in judgment made involving a strange northern maiden. Failure means a return trip to the stables, whence he came!
