It is 741. After subduing the pagan religions in the east, halting the march of Islam in the west, and conquering the continent for the Merovingian kings, mayor of the palace Charles the Hammer has one final ambition-the throne. Only one thing stands in his way-he is dying.

Charles cobbles together a plan to divide the kingdom among his three sons, betroth his daughter to a Lombard prince to secure his southern border, and keep the Church unified behind them through his friend Bishop Boniface. Despite his best efforts, the only thing to reign after Charles's death is chaos. His daughter has no intention of marrying anyone, let alone a Lombard prince. His two eldest sons question the rights of their younger pagan stepbrother, and the Church demands a steep price for their support. Son battles son, Christianity battles paganism, and Charles's daughter flees his court for an enemy's love.

Based on a true story, Anvil of God is a whirlwind of love, honor, sacrifice, and betrayal that follows a bereaved family's relentless quest for power and destiny.

From the Back Cover:

"YOU HAVE MORE POWER THAN YOU KNOW," Sunni said. "When you are ready to harness that power, come to me. But you must promise me that you will speak of this to no one. Not your father. Not Boniface. Not Carloman or Pippin. They are men and do not understand our bodies or our needs. Helping you will put me in grave danger. But, I can see that your need is great, so I am willing." 
 
"I can't take your advice," Trudi said. "But I came to you in confidence, so I will leave you in confidence." 
 
Sunni walked Trudi to the door, hugged her and kissed both her cheeks. 
 
"Consider who has been teaching you and ask yourself whose interest they are trying to protect. If you decide you want my help, come see me." 
 
Trudi left more disturbed than when she had arrived. 
 
Two days later, Trudi rounded a corner to find herself directly in front of Ansel. Her heart leapt at the sight of him. Her face blushed deeply as she took a tentative step toward him. "Ansel." She reached out her hand to touch his chest. 
 
Ansel's face twisted into a grimace. "Temptress!" His eyes seemed to push out of his head. "Stay away from me! I must have nothing to do with you.  Hear me, she-devil? Nothing!" 
 
That night, she returned to Sunni's chambers, pausing again on the threshold. Sunni invited her in and closed the door behind her.  "How can I help you?" Sunni asked.
 
"Tell me about power."
