I wrote this novella to introduce readers to the SIEGE MASTER series and CALL TO CRUSADE, the first book of the series. It has all of the action and intrigue of full-length novels, a memorable cast of characters from the series, and a unique point of view: That of a brilliant young siege master who fights with his brain even more than his brawn.
The Siege Master stories offer readers a fresh new look at the Middle Ages: stories of warriors just as smart as the finest fighting men of today, resourceful men who make novel use of the engineering skills and high technology of their age to defeat impregnable fortresses under insurmountable odds. Best of all, the stories are fact-based — rousing fiction threaded through real history!
