Will has grown up under the reign of kind and good King Arthur since he was born into the happy little family living within the walls of Camelot. That family falls apart when his father dies in battle when Will is only eight years old and his mother quickly follows. The only person left to care for him is an old family friend (and Will’s uncle), Sir Manchmal. Despite being squired to one of the best knights at court, it isn’t all that Will thought it would be. He wants more from life.
That wish is fulfilled when King Arthur entrusts Sir Manchmal and Will with keeping Camelot’s end of a bargain crucial to the survival of the small kingdom. They must deliver the princess to be married to the king of the neighboring kingdom of Morestia. The task sounds simple enough, but the attacks of Sir Whyh, knight of Camelot’s fiercest enemy, soon leave Will and the princess alone, with no one to guide them to the completion of their mission. Even worse, Will begins to befriend Princess Elaine and eventually develops feelings for the elegant royal. She could be the family missing from his life for so long. He is left to battle between his most desperate desire and the duty he has to his home and his people. One must be stronger.
