Summary: The last thing a taciturn assassin expects to find in the lonely hills of rural Scotland is a coffin in the ruins of a castle, housing a sleeping knight. Nor does he expect that one good deed will throw his life into jeopardy, and that his fate will be intertwined in a seven hundred year-old tale of valor and redemption.
Warnings: violence, strong language, and mild sexual references

The story thus far: On a job nearly gone awry, Jude Macmillian, assassin for hire, comes upon Liam Blackwood, a young man who not only professes to know Jude (and inexplicably hint at more), but also claims to be a knight from 700 years ago. Unbeknownst to them, a nameless Organization has been operating in the shadows: its leaders believe Liam's awakening is the first sign heralding the coming resurrection of a disgraced King, and the end of the world as we know it.
