Description

Imagine yourself in a world where the Fourth Crusade and the sack of Constantinople led to a revolution in what we now call mainland Greece. The society that arose out of that revolt is unlike any other in Europe: pagan, libertine, consciously interdependent yet insistent on individual rights, the people of the Hellenic Commonwealth and Polity are a self-made experiment in self governance. Here you will meet, among others: Master Xenos, a great swordsman who teaches at the Red Warrior Skolo, a school like no other; his assistant, Spathos Nikos; and their newest student, Eleni Vlaportini, who has come to Athens to learn the way of the sword. A Romance in the original sense of the word: a story about errantry and swordplay. An adventure set in the 13th century: love, sex and the way of the sword; and the coming of age of the greatest swordswoman in the Hellenic Commonwealth
