The year is A.D. 348. A Gothic purge sends Christians into Transylvania. Their champion is a woman, and her sword will reach ultimate fame.
In the fourth century, the Goths are living between the Black Sea, Transylvania, and the Roman-controlled Danube. In their midst are three individuals who will forever live in European literature, yet known only by their epithets:
Thulia the Bad Girl-- yet the Proclaimer knows who she will become.
Fritigern the Fisher-- destined to save his people from the Shadow of Death.
Merjands the Mystic-- walking from Asia to Gothia to complete a transmigration.
A woman of courageous spirit, a man who rides above war, and a teacher cursed to be forever old. From the author of The Demon's Door Bolt, a unique and new take on the origin of the Arthurian legend. A historical fancy based upon actual events: the first persecution of Gothic Christians beyond Rome's borders.
