1179. Henry II’s armies have swept through England, Wales – and now Ireland. Irish nobleman Ferdia has been imprisoned in Wales to ensure the good behaviour of his rebellious father. But during a skirmish to relieve a castle under attack, Ferdia saves the life of the man who would become one of the most legendary warriors in history: Richard Coeur de Lion. The Lionheart. Taken as Richard’s squire, Ferdia crosses the Narrow Sea to defeat the rebellious nobles in Aquitaine, besieging castles and fighting bloody battles with brutal frequency. But treachery and betrayal lurk around every corner. Infuriated by his younger brother Richard’s growing reputation, the king’s heir Henry rebels. And Ferdia learns that the biggest threat to Richard’s life may not be a foreign army – but Richard’s own family.
