A young knight, a mysterious dark forest, life and death choices.

Guibert of Rocadamor is returning from a failed expedition to the Holy Land. One of only a handful of knights in this army, Guibert is a young noble who wants nothing more than to become a legendary hero whom people will sing songs about. But how can he choose between the rival groups among the remnants of the army who vie for his support? As they draw closer to the safety of the French border, the question of who to stand with becomes a matter of life or death.

The best-selling author of Epic, Conor Kostick teaches medieval history at Trinity College Dublin.

Critic reviews

"Kostick’s background as a historian informs the authenticity and detail of the story, from the small personal habits of the characters to the wider European setting." (Books Ireland Magazine)
