The Minstrel's Tale continues... A boy with the power of a king. A wandering minstrel bound by an oath. A secret that unites them.
When Minstrel Amos Questerly's ten-year-old apprentice, Richard, ascends the throne of England, Amos soon finds himself entangled in royal affairs. Determined to return to his wandering ways, the minstrel instead finds himself drawn further into the king's inner circle where powerful enemies conspire and scheme for control. The country at war, the treasury low, and the young king's first decision triggers the roiling anger of England's peasantry to erupt, and plunges London into a revolt that shakes the foundations of a nation.
