In the province of Triport, there is an old challenge that ensures only the best of the best can join the king's service as an honourable knight.
Many attempt the Knight's Trial, but few succeed - often out-witted by the difficult puzzle that is presented to young hopefuls. Luckily, Marrius is no ordinary young hopeful and his determination, honour and intelligence are his greatest tools in his quest to defend the royal family and the kingdom from sorcery, beasts, bandits and armies for the rest of his years. As Marrius awaits his judgement, Francesca is in Port Laden, attempting a trial of her own.
One of several girls owned by the innkeepers, Francesca has been forced into the world's oldest profession.
When she falls pregnant, she attempts what no other has dared before to save herself and her unborn child - escape. Little do Francesca and Marrius know, their destinies are entwined - before long, their actions will have a deep impact on one of the most important wars Triport Province has ever faced.
