Le Masque de Toussaint

Volume I: Taking Up the Mask

Despite being the son of the Captain of the Royal Gendarmes and heir to a long line of war heroes, Luc Bartelme is a frivolous libertine, leading a life of pleasure and excess in the decadent court of the kingdom of Domingue. Foreign invaders encroach on Dominguean soil and the streets are rife with talk of revolution. When a kingdom on the brink explodes in the fires of war, Luc may prove to be more than he appears.
