The Wolf and the Lion - Book 1 of the Chronicles of the Coin
In 1283, a great war is brewing in Germany over the succession of the Duchy of Limburg. The Luxembourgs and the Brabants are locked in a power-struggle in an era when the German Dukes and Counts settled their scores in a battlefield, and any family might grasp the crown of Germany. Konrad, a minor knight in the service of the Luxembourgs loses his wife to a mysterious killer. Despairing, he commits his sword to war, and soul to the devil. Working for Adolf of Berg, the killer and Konrad are locked in a game for the devil, and their struggle might even determine which great house wins the war. Setting his men against mighty Adolf of Berg and his sinister servants, Konrad must choose between the devil’s favor and the love of a virtuous woman.
Will Konrad defeat Adolf and his servants with devil’s help, or will he find serving his lord and new love is enough of a reason to break his oaths to the Old Serpent?
The Wolf and the Lion is the first book in a brutal historical action and adventure fiction series set in the Medieval Europe and Germany.
