MORGARTEN (Book 2 of The Forest Knights)
This action-packed conclusion to The Forest Knights series picks up where ALTDORF left off. A small force of peasants from the forest regions surrounding Lake Lucerne, rise up against their Austrian overlords in the 14th century. Outnumbered seven-to-one by the battle-hardened Habsburg army, they have little hope.
A daring moonlight raid leaves the outlaw Noll Melchthal in possession of an Austrian fortress. In the north, an outraged Leopold of Habsburg assembles the ultimate punitive force: a great army, thousands strong, boasting the best knights and soldiers the Holy Roman Empire has to offer. Noll’s rebel army of boys and old men, numbering less than a thousand, have few swords, and even less armor.
But he has two things that Leopold does not: a Priestess of the Weave, and a ferryman.
The forests can protect them no longer. It is time to make a stand.
MORGARTEN is a novel of 77,000 words.
