Synopsis

George Ascalon, earl of Grasmere, returns from the Fourth Crusade to learn that his father, a man who has forsaken his family and noble title to take up Holy Orders, has assigned him one last battle. There is an evil permeating a neighboring lord's lands and George is called upon to vanquish it. With a band of followers that includes his sister, a knight, a fletcher's wife and a mysterious noblewoman, George sets out to honor the pledge and in doing so discovers that he indeed has dragons to fight, and the person most in need of saving is himself.
 

About Ellen Ekstrom

See more books from this Author
Ellen Ekstrom has been intrigued by all things medieval since seeing Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" as a five-year old - when it was first run in theatres. Now that she is in her middle ages, the passion for the middle ages hasn't abated. She is clergy in the Episcopal Church and serves as the parish deacon in a local church in Berkeley, California. To support her family and frenetic lifestyle, she works as a legal secretary when she can. Once in a while, she sleeps. Ms. Ekstrom is the author of "The Legacy," an historical novel set in 14th century Tuscany. Said Thomas Scott of The Copperfield Review, "...I felt I was swept into the world of medieval Tuscany. The sights, the sounds, the panorama of personalities, all had an immediately natural and engaging feel. Ekstrom has developed a narrative that is full of period detail as if medieval Tuscany is being painted with words before our eyes, yet the narrative never intrudes on the characters or the story. The characters are allowed to speak for themselves." Check her out at ladyelogos.wordpress.com
