Peter de Vere, a soldier who has fled the crusader army, returns to his home in northern England to find his father dead and the family’s castle seized. Armed with little more than a ragtag army of rebels and his childhood friends, Milo and Isabella, Peter must prove that his home is worth fighting not only a tyrannical king but also one of the most brilliant generals of the medieval times.
