In an epic tale, the young Eamon Goodman goes on a journey of discovery. A journey which sees him taking a pivotal role in the battle between the rival forces of the king and the master, and from being a young soldier in his home of Edesfield to being a fast-rising hero in the city of Dunthruik.
Through his journey, Eamon’s experiences lead him to question the nature and true meaning of the most important things in life – love and friendship, loyalty and honour, and who he really is. But will the answers he finds lead him to become a good man?
