A KNIGHT FROM DEIN, by Peter R Stone
The knights of Tenham are the flower of Eradean chivalry, yet even their days are numbered. The invincible hordes of grey-skinned, humanoid amalehqs, lead by their brutal king, will soon invade, plunder and desecrate their fair land.
Who are the amalehq Knights of the Immortal Brotherhood? Why do they outlive all of their kin, and why cannot they be overcome in battle?
What of Sir Carl Hardcourt, a brave knight from the resource-depleted island of Dein? He visits Tenham on a trading venture, but when he sees the impending amalehq invasion, looks for a way in which he personally could make a difference to the war’s forgone conclusion.
What diabolical plan will the amalehq king hatch to ensure that the elves, long-time allies of the fair Tenhamese, do not attack the amalehqs in the back while engaged in war with Tenham?
What troubles will befall the headstrong and impetuous Tenhamese Prince, Terrance Whitgrave? He will face betrayal, terror, and dishonour beyond his comprehension.
The Lady Sabina Vipont is considered the most beautiful woman in Tenham, and has been promised in marriage to Prince Terrance. Yet not even in her worst nightmares could she imagine the terrors her future holds as a result of a man more despicable than any other lusting over her.
