Please join me in congratulating George Steger on the release of Sebastian's Way: The Paladin, the second book in the Sebastian Chronicles series! I had the privilege of working with George on a copyedit, and I designed the cover too! George is a former military man and history professor, and his passion for the Carolingian era shines in this continuation of a young count's tale of adventure, duty, honor, and love in the time of Charlemagne. Here's the book description:
“He’s alive.” With these two words, the world as Sebastian knows it will never be the same. After several years of hard-won domestic bliss bolstered by his status as one of King Charlemagne’s most trusted advisers, the news that his cousin Konrad—his sworn enemy and the abusive first husband of his beloved wife, Adela—is alive means that their marriage is not valid in the eyes of the almighty Church. Even the king is no match for the dictates of the Church, and Sebastian has no choice but to watch as the love of his life enters a convent.
Heartbroken and set adrift, Sebastian embarks on a series of reckless escapades, hell bent on killing Konrad or himself, whichever comes first. But he accomplishes neither and grudgingly accepts Charlemagne’s offer to make him one of his twelve paladins, men who hold the king’s absolute trust to undertake the most important missions for the realm. After helping to force the once-mighty Avar nation into submission, the king sends Sebastian to the capitals of Constantinople, Jerusalem, and Baghdad. In each city, thrust into foreign worlds of intrigue and danger, he faces complicated diplomatic tasks with slender chances of success. Transformed from a faithful, idealistic youth into a bitter warrior ensconced in the violence of Charlemagne and surrounded by enemies, Sebastian’s arduous journey transforms into one not just for the glory of his king, but for his very life and the reclamation of his soul.
Sebastian's Way: The Paladin is available now in print and ebook format on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and check out George's blog for the scoop on the series.
