The unthinkable has happened: Alfred's brother, John, is king. And it isn't long before everyone's worst fears are realized. Traditional allegiances are shattered under a style of rule unknown since the grand bargain that formed the kingdom was struck over two hundred years ago.
These will be the most dangerous years of Alfred's life, forcing him to re-examine his duty to personal honor and to the kingdom, while the threats posed by his brother constantly remind him of his father's final words of advice. What choices will he have to make to try to protect the things he holds most dear?
