Summary: It is 700 ad and the world lies in ruin, the Dark Ages come to life. The Roman Empire has crumbled into something altogether new, Medieval Europe, hanging on to the remnants of Roman civilization while being shaped by the church.
In this land of relics and shrines knight Jensen of Ackerley wanders grief-stricken and purposeless until he takes on the challenge of guiding Lady Alona on a pilgrimage. Accompanied by the orphaned street thief Tristan of Jare, they travel from France to Rome to the center of the world - Jerusalem - across the glittering Mediterranean, facing dangers of the body and soul, the heart and mind.
Betas: Immeasurable thanks to corbyinoz for her encouragement, keen eye for detail, and passion for historical accuracy and jaimeykay for her honest critique and masterful understanding of characterization.
