Free Lance enlists in a tournament and cleans up in the jousting and broadsword fighting. That knight he is approached by none other than the King's daughter. She is being blackmailed and needs Free Lance's help. But the blackmailing knight is just a pawn in the dastardly archbishops' plans. Free Lance sets a trap, but captures more tan one treacherous rat. Has he at last bitten off more than he can chew? Full of drama and humour, this swashbuckling fantasy adventure by two of the leading exponents of the genre, sees the return of an action hero who is both charismatic and mysterious, and told in a laconic, Marlowesque first person narrative.

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
