about

The year is 1215 in Medieval Europe. Pope Innocent III is waging two crusades simultaneously. The smaller Albigensian Crusade is a vicious war on the Cathars, an extremist sect on separatists in Southern France. The Fifth Crusade is also raging, emptying Europe's fighting men into the Middle East and Northern Africa. The peoples of Europe are exhausted and skeptical of the Church, which has thrust civilization back into madness.

Out of the north, a warrior emerges. He is Amir Stonefist, a master blacksmith and descendant of Vikings. Word of the crusades has reached his homeland, and he sets out towards Europe with a wanderer's heart. He wants only to avoid the wars of foreign religions, but is tempted by the fire of combat and riches of warfare at every turn.

What follows is the fascinating tale of the Fifth Crusade, a long-forgotten war brought to life through the authorship of Mark Butler.
