Raised by monks, the orphan Tristan never dreamed that he might see the world or discover the truth about his past. But that changes the day that the Knights Templar ride through the abbey on their way to fight in the Holy Land for Richard the Lionheart’s Crusade. Overnight Tristan becomes a squire to Sir Thomas, one of the Templar’s most courageous knights. But he also finds himself entrusted with the most sacred relic in all of Christendom, the Holy Grail.
With the chaos of war surrounding him, Tristan teams up with a young archer from Sherwood Forest and a deadly Al Hashshashin warrior. But even with their help, can he safely bring the Holy Grail back to England and escape the evil men who follow in its wake?
