Expelled from the Rangers he has served so loyally, Halt is joined by Will?s friend Horace as he travels toward Skandia. On their way, they are challenged constantly by freelance knights?but Horace knows a thing or two about combat. Soon he begins to attract the attention of knights and warlords for miles around with his uncanny skill. Even so, will they be in time to rescue Will from a horrific life of slavery?
