Book 1 of the Ki Kalendeen Chronicles
Murder most foul! A noble lord is slaughtered in his manor. His three surviving children suddenly find themselves commoners. The Oldest, Gabriel Ki Kalendeen, is a knight in service to the church. He must balance his commitment to God with his responsibilities of his family. Eleenia, an independent minded healer, tries to make her way in a male dominated society, and in a profession that permits few females to enter. The roguish David, having survived the attack on his family, takes on a new identity, convinced that he is still a target. Together they struggle against society, their own deep character flaws, and the evil that secretly manipulates the world through intrigue, deception, lies, and murder. But the sons of perdition knew not what they did when they spilled the Blood of the Righteous!
