The thirteenth century, Sicily.

Federigo, the young, orphaned King of Sicily, is reluctantly preparing for an evening at court.

Surrounded by ambitious noblemen, the Pope, and his strict regent Diepold, Federigo grows tired of the malicious intent and whisperings of old men.

He finds solace in the company of his motley crew of bad boys, Durante and Yusuf - street-fighters unfit to play with the son of the German Emperor.

Returning to the palace of Al-Aziz with a bloodied eye, Federigo is met by his furious regent.

Anticipating a severe beating, the young King escapes the palace for the night.

Federigo meets his rough companions on the road and heads to the pleasure house.

But there are strange voices coming from inside the house.

Unknown voices which uncover a plot to murder the King.

Frightened for his safety, not knowing who to trust, Federigo and his gang decide to flee.

At the port they meet Hadji-Mustafa, the greatest pirate in the Mediterranean and convince him to take them aboard his ship.

Encountering a witch who predicts he will be a great king, Federigo seeks to understand his role in the world.

He tries to navigate his way home, evading the noblemen who chase him.

But with long brilliant red hair in Sicily, it is not easy to go unspotted...

Can Ferderigo make it home, and claim his throne?

Or will he be overthrown by those conspiring against him?

'The King's Road' is a thrilling historical adventure, set in Medieval Sicily.

Cecelia Holland is widely acknowledged as one of the finest historical novelists of our time. She is the author of more than thirty novels, including 'Hammer For Princes' and 'Ghost on the Steppe'.
