A lifelong dream of riding to war at the side of his adored liege - of battling traitors and monsters and rising high in the court - is dashed to bits when Sir Durendal is bonded till death, not to his beloved king, but to an effete noble fop. Yet twisting Destiny has many strange and inscrutable plans for this young knight. For a mission, a contest, and, perhaps, a treasure beyond imagining awaits Durendal behind the walls of an ancient, isolated city in a faraway land where dangers are legion and death is omnipresent. But betrayal will dog his every footstep. And beneath the blood intrigues of a perilous court - behind grisly secrets of opulence and immortality - lie horrors hitherto unimaginable that he must overcome to gain the future that has been prophesied for him: as the mightiest hero that ever lived.

The plot meanders through a lot of years, and at times I wondered where this story was going, but the ending was great.
