A science fiction classic about a most unusual First Contact ... In the year of grace 1345, as Sir Roger, Baron de Tourneville, was gathering an army to join King Edward III in the war against France, a most astonishing event occurred: a huge silver ship descended through the sky and landed in a pasture beside the little village of Ansby in northeastern Lincolnshire. The Wersgorix, whose scouting ship it was, were quite expert at taking over planets, and having determined from orbit that this one was suitable, they initiated standard world-conquering procedure. That is, one of the crew showed himself--a sight that customarily terrorized backward natives. The tactic had never failed; superstitious aborigines were always quickly subdued--or wiped out--leaving the Wersgorix free to establish a base, gather specimens of indigenous plants, animals and minerals, and report their findings home, facilitating future conquest. Ah, but this time it was no mere primitives the Wersgorix sought to slaughter or enslave. They'd launched their invasion against Englishmen! ... Also Englishwomen, children and old folk of every rank, who were duly horrified by the demonic, blue-skinned creature that emerged from the strange ship. Not even the friar's reminder that sorcery could not harm good Christians calmed the throng (for there were many miserable sinners among them). But Sir Roger was undaunted. When the monster dared attack, that brave nobleman led his army charging into the ship--cavalry and foot soldiers fighting the bloody hand-to-hand battles they understood so brutally well. A form of warfare the Wersgorix hadn't seen in centuries. In the end, only one alien was left alive--and Sir Roger's grand vision was born. He intended for the creature to fly the ship, which was large enough to hold Ansby's entire human and animal populations--and all the comforts of home--first to France to aid their King, then on to the Holy Land to vanquish the infidel! But instead of taking them to France, the treacherous alien locked the ship's controls on a course set for one of the Wersgorix's previously conquered planets. And Sir Roger's Crusaders found themselves fighting against the strangest infidels they'd ever seen to win the most unholy land imaginable.

More than a thousand years ago the armies of the Arcosian Empire, led by Mornhavon the Black, crossed the great sea and tried to conquer the land of Sacoridia. In the course of that campaign, Hadriax el Fex, Mornhavon's honorable first lieutenant, had seen his commander sink slowly into madness and resort to terrible dark magic. In desperation, Hadriax had turned traitor, seeking help from the enemy-making contact with the First Rider of Sacoridia's Green Rider corps. Due to Hadriax's defection, Mornhavon had been captured, and his corrupted now-immortal spirit had been imprisoned in Blackveil Forest. But in the ten centuries since the war's end, knowledge of the working of magic had slowly disappeared from Sacoridia, due to the fear and prejudice of a people traumatized by the memory of the terrifying sorceries of Mornhavon's invading army. The spirit of Mornhavon, sensing the weakness in his prison wall, began to wake, seeking vengeance, and causing frightening aberrations throughout the land. Karigan Gladheon was now a seasoned Green Rider-an experienced member of the magical messenger corps of the king of Sacoridia. With the ghostly help of the First Rider, Karigan . had managed to transport the spirit of Mornhavon into the future, buying valuable time for her king and country. But how far in the future was Mornhavon now? A hundred years? Ten years? Only one year? There was no way to tell. And though Karigan and her fellow Riders scoured the land searching for lost magical documents, and members of Clan D'Yer camped at the wall hoping to uncover its lost secrets, they were unaware of a threat to their kingdom that lay far closer. For Hadriax was not the only Arcosian soldier who'd survived the Long War, and those other soldiers had not shared his remorse. Now, the descendants of those Arcosians were ready to reach out to claim the land their forebears had tried to conquer. And these vengeful enemies, hidden within the seemingly peaceful borders of Sacoridia, had spent generations honing the powers of dark magic-a force against which the Sacoridians no longer had any defense
