"It is the same war we always fight. A war for coin we will never touch, won for men who never bleed."

AD 690: Spain is poised on the brink of civil war. The struggle between Emperor and Caliph simmers in the east. Caught amid it all, Spain's children fight for justice, freedom - and each other.

Far from his homeland, Theudemir of Aurariola counts it a curse when his commander asks him to spy on the Greek fleet he serves. His honour weighs him down in the wars between Emperor and Caliph, where men serve only themselves and treachery takes what battle does not.

Meanwhile fierce, wild Llia, heiress to the Spanish estate of Illiberis, travels into Saharan sands in search of allies as she prepares to defend her home against the corrupt ambitions of church and crown.

In Spain itself, Theo's brothers are caught on opposite sides of the increasingly bitter civil war, but are united in their fight against those who threaten to destroy the heart of the nation their family helped build. As the old nobility are divided by old enmities and traditional power games, a new generation risk everything to prepare their battered nation for the greater enemy marching toward Spanish shores.

Whilst all must make foreign enemies and alliances to survive, Spain's children remain linked by a common enemy: Oppa, the scheming bastard son of the Spanish King, who is making dangerous alliances of his own. His amb...
