Will Richard the Lionheart reclaim his throne in this epic historical adventure of the Crusader Knights
It is winter in England, 1192. Richard Coeur de Lion, the battle-hardened warrior-king, has been captured and imprisoned returning from the Crusades – after spending only a few months in the land he is supposed to rule.
As the winter snow melts, England pays the price of being a kingdom without a king. For Richard’s jealous and spiteful brother John, not content with robbing his brother’s subjects of all they have, plans insurrection to wrest the throne itself…
But then a second message comes, one which chills even John’s thin blood: ‘Le diable étoit déchaîné,’ ‘The devil is loose!’ The game is on, and everything is to play for.
The fourth exciting instalment of The Crusader Knights Cycle is perfect for fans of Griff Hosker, Jonathan Lunn and Conn Iggulden.
