A primitive future.
The future is a primitive place. Horses ply the roads, the best weapon is a broadsword, and the Ancients are feared and despised. Amid the rubble of our lost civilization, the kingdom of Yusay is rising . . .
A mysterious master.
Bred as a soldier and born in a colony of intellectuals, the death of his family leaves Patrick Bell belonging nowhere. He follows his ancestor to the kingdom of Yusay, but it turns out that ancestor is not just remembered, he is worshiped. Patrick wins the powerful post of Master of Guards, but his ancestry sparks envy and suspicion. When Patrick is implicated in a plot to murder the king, his life is on the line!
A plot to kill the king!
Prince Gar was a young scholar forced to become a warrior when a murderous uprising slaughtered the royal family. Now an aging king with a lifetime of impressive reforms, Gar needs a man as talented as Patrick to protect his children, and his legacy. He risks trusting him, but only to a point. Gar’s trust is increasingly tested when it becomes obvious that killers are after him again…
The Legacy and the Lion is the first book in a science-based, political, very human future saga. If you like multiple evolving characters, realistic dialogue, and losing yourself in a primitive new society, you’ll love the first book in The Yusan Chronicles series.
