Synopsis

Can even the undying high lord save the confederation when all of its enemies are arming for battle?

The blood-soaked blade of war

For seven hundred years, the Undying High Lord Milo has been building his Confederation, leading the Horseclans slowly across the lands once known as the United States, absorbing city-states and nomadic tribes alike, some by peaceful means, some by the sword. But now his enemies have banded together into an army far larger than Milo can muster. Led by an ancient and evil intelligence, this wave of unstoppable destruction is thundering swiftly down upon the Confederation forces. And Milo has no choice but to call upon all his allies, from the smallest troop of mountain warriors to the notorious pirate ships of the Lord of the Sea Isles, in a final desperate attempt to save the Confederation from seemingly certain doom...

Excerpt

BATTLE OF THE BRIDGE

Almost before he knew it, the High Lord Demetrios was in among the enemy cavalry, his huge stallion easily bowling over their smaller, lighter mounts. Then, suddenly, an ax split his stallion's skull, and Demetrios found himself afoot in the midst of a cavalry engagement. Caught in a deadly dangerous position, and with his badly depleted Confederation troops being forced step by step back across the bridge, there was only one thing for him to do. As a lancer thundered down upon him, Demetrios avoided the lance point, grasped the shaft, and jerked. Then, while the foeman was still unbalanced, he grabbed the right foot and heaved, then clawed his way up into the empty saddle, and spurred his new mount forward in a frantic attempt to rejoin his own army...
