A small force of peasants from the forest regions surrounding Lake Lucerne, rise up against their Austrian overlords in the 14th century. Outnumbered seven-to-one by the battle-hardened Habsburg army, they have little hope.
A daring moonlight raid leaves the outlaw Noll Melchthal in possession of an Austrian fortress. In the north, an outraged Leopold of Habsburg assembles the ultimate punitive force: a great army, thousands strong, boasting the best knights and soldiers the Holy Roman Empire has to offer. Noll's rebel army of boys and old men, numbering less than a thousand, have few swords, and even less armor.
But he has two things that Leopold does not: a Priestess of the Weave, and a ferryman.
The forests can protect them no longer. It is time to make a stand.

Once again I can say only good things about this continuation of this story. I found it to be full of everything I like as well as being grabbed by the characters involved. Another very good read.
Book 2 of an epic tale. (They should turn this story into a movie!). Lovable characters. Even the Villain makes you smile. This story has adventure, heart and soul, and love. Well-written And excellent performance by narrator. Excellent depiction of a wide range of characters.
This was a well written story that was brought to life by the wonderful performance of Brad Wills. It brought out every emotion that I had. Tomas, Serena and Noel were great characters.
