In 20 years the de Hauteville brothers have gone from penniless obscurity to become the most potent warrior family in Christendom. Now, at the head of the tribe stands Robert, who has only one aim: to expand his power by military conquest. Roger, the youngest of the brothers, is a giant in build and a great figher. In company – and sometimes in conflict – with Robert, he will seek to raise the family to the pinnacle of influence. Their chosen enemies are the mighty Saracen Emirs of Sicily, and conquest comes before all, even if the path is not easy.
