Devils In The Breach
Epic adventures reignite in this second thrilling installment of Jason Born’s medieval series, Lions & Devils. From the Middle Sea, the unstoppable Muslim Caliphate has already cut a swath deep into the heart of Western Europe, separating families, oppressing new subjects, and threatening all in their path.
It is 720 A.D., Duke Eudo continues his peaceful and prosperous reign of Aquitaine, but covetous enemies loom near. To the north, Charles, Mayor of the Palace, seeks to add Eudo’s lands to Frankia once and for all. In the south, Hispania is shattered by invaders from the Caliphate, dashing Eudo’s dreams of alliance. His eldest son, Hunoald, is missing in a clash that draws nigh, leaving his second, peevish son, Remistanius, in line to inherit rule. Within Aquitaine, factions place their own pride and riches above country. War is upon Eudo. When conflict erupts, it is unveiled as a two-headed beast gnashing at him from multiple fronts, brutally gobbling up innocents as well as the guilty.
Devils in the Breach is an historical yarn ripped from today’s headlines. Born’s magnificent tale immerses the reader in the thick of vivid battle, striking characters, and unyielding women. In the midst of darkness, will the heart of a loyal hero’s family burn and blaze a trail toward victory?
