During the Fifth Crusade, the bloody siege of Damietta grinds to a stalemate and a young Christian soldier begins having visions....

Raphael of Acre, a young initiate of the Shield-Brethren, becomes a war hero during a vicious battle for control of a Muslim stronghold. One of his companions, Eptor, is wounded in the battle and falls under the influence of strange hallucinations. When a superior plots to manipulate Eptor's visions into war propaganda, Raphael struggles between duty to the cause and duty to his faith. Unable to reconcile his roles as Christian and soldier, Raphael seeks out an unlikely source of counsel - the great pacifist Francis of Assisi.

Part of the Foreworld Saga, Dreamer confronts the paradox of using sword and fist in an effort to spread a message of humility and compassion.

    " Another Mongoliad prequel, this focusing on Raphael from the first one and gives him a bit of a back story. "

    " Not a lot to this story, but you learn a little about the Raphael character from The Mongoliad, and there is also a dramatization of St. Francis of Assisi receiving the stigmata. "

    " A very interesting introduction to Raphael. "

    " This was my favorite of Mark Teppo's prequels to the Mongoliad series. St. Francis is very big territory for an author to carve out. Teppo does a great job with it. I'm really looking forward to see how this experience colors Raphael's later adventures with the Shield-Brethren. "

    " I liked what I read, but it was too short. Having studied medieval history as an undergrad, it was cool seeing St. Francis of Assisi take form in here! I'm now jumping into the main Book One of Mongoliad and hope some of these tantalizingly interesting characters make an appearance... "
