Spared from capture by Julia’s father, Gervase and Julia continue on to Canterbury, where they seek sanctuary in England’s last church. But it’s not considered sacred ground by Hugo’s men, who are already laying in wait. Hugo, in London, has declared himself the new Prior, and attempts to consolidate his power base as Mordrin’s grip on reality slips. In his own compound, Mordrin secretly has a new crown made, believing that declaring himself King of England will end both the division among the Knights of God and the fight from the resistance. He eschews any kind of military strategy or spin control in favor of planning his own coronation. In Canterbury, just as the head priest is about to reveal the identity of the true King, Hugo’s forces strike.
