The Sword and the Cross Cover

At age seventeen, Rodric becomes the young Count of Valenta when his parents are killed by the vile Ervig, the Lord of Aleveso. In 975, Valenta was on the northern edge of the Muslim penetration into the Christian-held lands in Spain. Rodric must deal with the Moors to the south, as well as with Ervig's aggressive designs, to become the preeminent lord among the Christians. As he learns whom he can trust and whom he must defend himself against, we learn a great deal about relations between Christians and Muslims more than a millennium ago.

Gary Robert Muschla is also the author of Crusaders, published by Royal Fireworks Press.
