A Song of Roland

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The Dark Ages—a time of great turmoil and the collision of empires!

As the Frank kingdom prepares for war, Roland, young heir to the Breton March, has been relegated to guard duty until a foreign emissary entrusts him with vital word of a new threat to the kingdom. Now Roland must embark on a risky journey to save all he loves from swift destruction.

And yet while facing down merciless enemies, he must also reveal the hand of a murderer who even now stalks the halls of power and threatens to pull apart a kingdom reborn under the greatest of medieval kings, the remarkable Charlemagne.

For Roland to become the champion his kingdom needs, he must survive war, intrigue and betrayal. The Silver Horn Echoes pays homage to "La Chanson de Roland" by revisiting an age of intrigue and honor, and a fateful decision in the shadows of a lonely mountain pass—Roncevaux!

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 05, 2018 – In this thrilling medieval swashbuckler, Eging and Arnold reimagine the adventure, treachery, and epic battles of the Franks in 801 CE through Roland, knight of Breton March and King Charles's esteemed combat hero. Roland is an ambitious young warrior who finds himself only posted to garrison duty when King Charles leaves to battle the Saxons. When an envoy arrives with news of another foreign aggressor, Roland leaves to inform the king of the news. He joins the Saxon assault, becoming the king's bravest, most skilled fighter, and earns the title "champion." Meanwhile, Roland uncovers a plot to harm the king, and suspects his stepfather, Ganelon, is its instigator; Roland believes Ganelon also killed his father, William. The Franks soon find themselves battling on two fronts. There are gory battles throughout that will resonate with combat and history enthusiasts, but may be too graphic for some readers. Those closest to Roland his wife, Aude; friend Oliver; and mother, Gisela elevate a complex, powerful character whose decency can seem at odds with his brutality during battle. This tale of military aggression, family betrayal, and knightly valor ably reimagines the legend of Roland and his indomitable fighting spirit. (BookLife)
