Description

Disillusioned, now derided as the 'Butcher of Bellic', war hero Martil leaves his beloved homeland in search of peace. Set upon by bandits, he is tricked into taking a small child, Karia, to her uncle. But the village has been gutted of its people - except for one ex-bandit who has the Dragon Sword, a magical relic belonging to the rulers of Norstalos. Now Martil and Karia find themselves swept up in the struggle for a country. Norstalos's first-ever queen is trying to keep her crown while her cousin, Duke Gello, wants it and is prepared to do anything, even make a deal with dark powers, to get it. Martil finds himself caring for a child, fighting for a queen and discovering that even a magical sword is no guarantee of victory.
