In 1547, Francis Crawford of Lymond is disgraced and newly escaped from captivity. Returning to his beloved Scotland, he soon embarks on a fantastic journey that will take him from the decadent French Court to the battlegrounds of crusading knights in Malta, from the hidden palaces of the Ottoman Empire to the frozen vastness of Ivan the Terrible’s Russia—a quest which will require him to risk everything in order to redeem his reputation and protect his homeland.
