Adventurer Ethan Gage travels through the darkest and most
superstitious realms of eighteenth-century Europe, to the castles and caves of
Bohemia to rescue his family and uncover a mysterious medieval device rumored
to foretell the future.
Having quick-wittedly survived the battle of Trafalgar, Ethan
is rushing to rescue “Egyptian priestess” Astiza and son Harry from
imprisonment by a ruthless mystic who seeks revenge for disfigurement, and an
evil dwarf alchemist who experiments with the occult on Prague’s Golden Lane.
Using death as his ruse, and a pair of unlikely allies—a
Jewish Napoleonic soldier and his sutler father—Ethan must decipher clues from
Durendal, the sword of Roland. Astiza uses her own research to concoct an
explosive escape and find a lost tomb, their tormentors in relentless pursuit.
William Dietrich skillfully weaves intrigue and magic,
romance and danger in a historical thriller that sprints from the fury of
Napoleonic war to the mystic puzzles of Central Europe. What enigmas will the
fabled Brazen Head finally reveal? Download and start listening now!
