She and other trusted squires and knights are commissioned by the newly elected grand master to courier sacred artifacts to Europe's preceptories and cathedrals for protection. Along the way, their paths cross the Inquisition, espionage, the wiles of the English and French courts, wars between England and Scotland, the dissolution of the Knights Templar, and the deaths of trusted friends.
