Valiant has been appointed to escort Baron Duncan Draconarius to King Ian of Kengarry to pay for the murder of Derrik, Ian's loyal aide and mediator. Unknown to Val, though, Ian has been under siege by rebels since his return from Camelot.
The road to Ian's castle is a dangerous one. Duncan, with a sudden change of heart over his noble gesture to surrender, escapes one night. But just outside the camp, he encounters a young woman named Margaret, who acts as a guide to Ian's palace.
The palace is under heavy siege. Without Derrik, Ian is unable to negotiate any treaties with the barbaric tribes of Kengarry. Valiant steps in and organizes Ian's guards along with his own small army to drive back the invaders. But it is Duncan, with some history of the rebellion from Margaret, who is able to negotiate peace.
Not only has Duncan saved his neck, but he has found a new home. Ian recognizes in him a replacement for Derrik and the secured future of his kingdom. Valiant is not forgotten either...Arthur's praise for a successful campaign makes him one step closer to knighthood.
