Series: Lukien Trilogy
(From the publisher):
Akeela, king of Liiria. Young and idealistic, determined to bring peace to his kingdom--a land that had been plagued by war with the neighboring kingdom of Reec for decades. He has come to parley in Hes, capital city of Reec, with Liiria's age-old enemy, King Karis. With him are his Royal Chargers, led by a man as feared as the young king is loved:
Lukien, the Bronze Knight. Not yet thirty, peerless with a sword, a reputation earned the hard way. War is his life, his true calling, Reec his sworn enemy. But he is Akeela's champion. His loyalty, stronger than blood, knows no limits. It is an unfortunate foe who faces the Bronze Knight's wrath.
As Akeela and Lukien enter the gates of their enemy's stronghold, neither man foresees the turmoil this historic journey will wreak on their lives. For to seal the peace, King Karis of Reec bestows upon Akeela his most valued treasure:
Cassandra, charming, beautiful, accomplished. But unknown to anyone, Cassandra hides a terrible secret, a disease which will threaten her life, and cause unimaginable strife for all who love her. And for Akeela and Lukien, the quest for Cassandra's salvation will overwhelm every bond of loyalty, every point of honor, every dream of peace.
The Eyes of God will see their world torn apart.
