Blood and Gold
by Ben Blake
Sarténe is a land of culture and beauty. It is also about to be invaded, its people accused of heresy and awful crimes.
Defending it are four friends, famous for their exploits in war in the desert far away. Behind them stands the Hidden House, and the ancient powers it is said to command. But against them comes a vast army, larger than any they can raise, and the cruel general who leads it.
