The final chapter of the bestseller saga set inside of a video game.
Alexandra Freeland has decided to leave the 21st century and remain in the Middle Ages to marry Marc, the first knight of Louis IX. When the two young betrothed leave the court to prepare their wedding in Châtel-Argent, the king gives them a mission: to escort the English countess Anne Sembry, the confidant of the wife of the emperor Frederick II, and her daughter Edwina, to the border between France and the empire, and to glean any possible diplomatic secrets along the way. Alex is amused by the idea of acting as a ’secret agent’ for a while, but during the trip the group is wiped out by a surprise attack and then stalked by unknown enemies. Edwina is kidnapped and Marc is seriously injured. In order to save him, Alex must be willing to do almost anything: even to take up the weapons of a knight and put at risk secrets that have been jealously guarded for over twenty years.
