After a battle left Ramiro Ibáñez de Tolosa’s face terribly disfigured, the knight of the Order of Calatrava abandoned his sword for a pastoral existence. But his beastly appearance horrifies all those who cross his path - with the exception of his adoring and pregnant wife. Can he keep Louisa and their unborn child safe from the war that is coming to Iberia?
As Ramiro prepares for his child’s birth, Brother Lazare of the Cistercian order searches for a means to inspire men as he travels with the crusading Templars. He seeks swords of legend - named blades carried by heroes of old - believing such symbols have the ability to rally men in a way no king could ever accomplish. But when he learns of the stories told of the mysterious monster that haunts the Iberian battlefields, he wonders what sort of power this new legend might contain - the legend of a man whose scarred face and cold demeanor cannot hide his heroic soul.

Yes, it's a nice, short story that would fit into a small span of time very well
It was delightfully sarcastic and the narator had me giggling outloud several times.
He does a very good job of giving each character a distinct voice and personality. He also does not use terrible, fake accents. I hate the fake accents people seem to think belong in epic fantasy audio books.
I literally was giggling out loud almost from the first word. That's always a good sign.
