Summary
It was a cold brand that did not make him cry out or leave him scarred -- but it marked him as a thief nevertheless, and thus William Gold's dreams of becoming a knight were stolen from him. So when Edward, the Black Prince, raised an army bound for France, William could only join its ranks as the lowest of the low -- a cook's boy. In France, however, even a cook's boy gets to fight, and when a French army corners the English a few miles south-west of Poitiers, William finds himself int he heart of the epic battle -- culminating in a terrifying confrontation with the greatest knight of the age, the peerless killing machine, Geoffrey de Charny. With the beginnings of a reputation for valour, William's ambitions are rekindled. But in the aftermath of the battle, as rapacious English mercenaries plunder a country already ravaged by plague, and the peasantry take violent revenge against the French knights who have failed to protect them, can chivalry be any more than a boyish fantasy? William Gold still dreams of being a knight, but in this savage new world of intrigue, betrayal and greed, first he must learn to survive
