-- Argus Publishing takes on Daniel C. Lorti's sequel to The Avignon Legacy
, Knights of Honor
Although Knights of Honor
could be considered a stand-alone novel, it picks up where Sir Jean Termonde and Sir Maurice Chatillon left off, two decorated knights of valor who saved the Vatican in Avignon who continue to discover adventure and disorder on missions for the French Crown. Comradery turns much more serious as Sir Maurice is passed the torch of governing Arles, France as mayor, while Sir Jean is appointed ambassador of France in a not so peaceful Italy. Intriguing politics, including Italian city-states vying for territory, a battle royal for control of Southern Italy led by an Avignon pope-sponsored French force, a war with England, and an increasing pirate threat in the Mediterranean are only the beginning. Sir Jean navigates the turbulent times with daring initiatives and bold tact with Sir Maurice, aided by Captain Axe, a dashing English captain turned French privateer, a legendary mercenary, a Roman cardinal, and a novice spy.
