Medieval war was grim, bloody and face-to-face. The novel Quest for the True Cross immerses you in medieval war up front and personal.
- Find yourself in a siege engine with rocks and arrows firing down on you!
- Storm over the battlements and hear the clash of steel and cries of anguish!
- Stampede with your fellow crusaders through winding streets as you come under sustained attack from all directions!
Your companion in this medieval war is William de Mandeville – an English Knight Templar who must find a sacred relic stolen from the Knights Templar. You will go with him to a new kingdom called Portugal that is besieging a Muslim city called Al-Usbuna. Inside that city is the sacred relic – the True Cross.
The very wood on which Jesus Christ was crucified. From a tree grown on the grave of Adam in the Garden of Eden. It has immense power and the Templars want it back.
You and William will find it – and restore it to the Knights Templar!
QUEST FOR THE TRUE CROSS
by Tony McMahon
Medieval War in all its horror. William and the Knights Templar must break through the huge fortifications of Al-Usbuna if they are to succeed. But inside is a vast city. A city of Muslim warriors but also men, women and children. William needs to get the True Cross – but he also has to avoid a massacre of innocent people.
There are evil-doers on all sides. Geraldo the Fearless is a crusader with no morals who collects human heads he has severed in a blood-soaked bag. With Al-Usbuna a corrupt city governor pushes families into the front line of battle to save his own skin.
