The triumphant conclusion to this epic historical trilogy about a Scottish family's rise to power during the Holy Crusades Duncan has returned with his new wife to the fastness of Banvard, to continue his father Murdo's good work in building a powerful and devout community. Even more precious a gift than his wife, though, is the other item that Duncan has brought to the Scottish clan: the Black Rood, the holy Cross of the Crucifixion that Duncan rescued from the clutches of the Knights Templar. Yet the reach of the Templars is long, and soon Duncan and his loved ones find themselves under attack from the Christian Knights. Duncan's daughter Cait is forced to flee, and soon finds herself on a boat heading for the Moorish strongholds of Spain, where she will find herself mired in a battle for religious supremacy which threatens to leave only corpses in its wake. Cait appears to have little hope of survival, but it seems that the pious devotion of her forebears is about to bear miraculous fruit. And the possibility of her survival becomes intertwined with the discovery of the most holy relic of all! In the final part of this enthralling trilogy of historical adventure, Stephen Lawhead delivers an explosive and revelatory climax to this unique religious fantasy quest.

From the Back Cover:

of the Crusades, and the secret society whose hidden ceremonies continue to shape our world.

While undergoing a mysterious religious initiation, Scottish lawyer Gordon Murray discovers the greatest revelation of all. . . .

A thousand years after its disappearance, the Mystic Rose--the fabled Holy Grail of the Last Supper--has been found, and the Knights Templar will stop at nothing to possess it. Led by the ruthless and corrupt Renaud de Bracineaux, the warrior monks embark on a dangerous and deceitful quest to find the Holy Cup.

Only one person stands in their way. Raised on the Crusader tales of her father and grandfather, Cait--an indomitable young woman from the windswept hills of northern Scotland--has determined to claim the prize for her own. Thus begins a race which quickly escalates into a battle of wits, will, and might between two cunning and implacable foes for possession of the most valuable object in all Christendom: the Mystic Rose.

Vividly interweaving the history of our own tumultuous time with events from long ago, and brilliantly blending sheer, visceral storytelling with a sweeping vision of human destiny, Stephen Lawhead spins the conclusion to his magnificent saga, the Celtic Crusades.

About the Author:

Born and raised in America, Lawhead moved to the UK, to Oxford, in order to research into Celtic legend and history. He lives in Iffley with his wife, writer Alice Slaikeu Lawhead, and their two sons, Ross and Drake.
