Swordland Publisher's Summary

Robert FitzStephen is a warrior down on his luck. Arrogant, cold, but a brilliant soldier, FitzStephen commands a castle despite his checkered lineage. When a Welsh rebellion brings defeat and a crippling siege, FitzStephen's highborn comrades scorn him, betraying him to the enemy. A hostage of his cousin, Prince Rhys, FitzStephen is disgraced and seemingly doomed to a life of obscurity and shame.

Then King Diarmait arrives, the ambitious overlord of an Irish kingdom. Forced to flee by the High King of Ireland, he seeks to reclaim his lands by any means possible, including inviting the Normans. With nothing left to lose, FitzStephen agrees to lead the Irishman's armies and drive Diarmait's enemies from his kingdom. His price? Acceptance...or perhaps a kingdom of his own?

    It is 1170 - a tumultuous time for the people of Wales, England, and Ireland, and Raymond de Carew is in love, but the woman he desires is an earl's daughter and so far above his station that he has no hope of ever winning her. However, Raymond's lord has a mission for him: one that, if it succeeds, will put an Irish king back on his throne and prove Raymond worthy - for in Norman society, a man can rise as high as his skill with a sword can take him. With only 100 men at his side, Raymond must cross the ocean to Ireland ahead of his mercenary lord's invasion.
