A mesmerizing tale of love, war, power, and revolt set in one of England's most fascinating eras - the age of chivalry. Anno 1360 - Twelve-year-old Robin is reduced to the life of a stable hand when his father, the Earl of Waringham, is executed for treason. Subjected to the tyrannical whims of the new earl's son Mortimer, Robin flees to the battlefields of the Hundred Years' War. In the service of the charismatic Duke of Lancaster he rises to knighthood and fame. But Lady Fortune's Wheel is spinning endlessly, and while the irresponsible young King Richard II threatens to ruin the realm in the turmoil of war and Peasants' Revolt, Robin risks losing everything he gained when he falls in love with Blanche, the wife of his lifelong foe, Mortimer.
