by Timothy James Hemling
Vincent Kaverno is a knight returning with his men from the Third Crusade. He has not seen his home soil or his secret love—Diana West, only daughter of his lord—in three years. Vincent unknowingly sets into motion an ancient conflict that calls him and his men into a struggle against fiends that have gathered to destroy his family line. Unbeknownst to him, Vincent is the one chosen to wield the Damascus Sword, an artifact created to discern good from evil. He soon realizes that he and his men are not fighting for their own lives, lord, or principality, but against evil that has been dormant for centuries. Will Vincent transcend his doubt over the calling he has received and fulfill his destiny?
