What book are you in? I might want to join you soon.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Still in Victorian Dorset, and now also in Victorian Northumberland, investigating some nasty murders with an Arthurian slant to them.

12th century England. The king's two heirs are fighting for the crown.
