For fifteen years, the truce has held. Swordsmen of the Tryst of Casr have kept the peace and extended the rule of law over half the world, but now sorcerers have started killing swordsmen again, and swordsmen traitors are aiding them. Shonsu—who was Wallie Smith before he became a swordsman of the seventh rank and liege lord of the Tryst—must once more gird on the seventh sword of Chioxin, and this time he rides out to fight the war that he hoped would never come. As he leads his army forth, its two most junior members are Vixini, son of Shonsu, and Addis, son of Nnanji, who has an oath of vengeance to fulfill. Their failure or success will determine the fate of the world for the next thousand years.

The complete fantasy trilogy of a feared Scottish outlaw—from the author of the Seventh Sword series and “one of the leading masters of epic fantasy” (Publishers Weekly).
 
In his action-packed fantasy saga, originally written under the pseudonym Ken Hood, Scottish-born, Aurora Award–winning author Dave Duncan tells the tale of Scottish outlaw Toby Strangerson, known and feared by the name Longdirk. In 1244, all of Europe is under the control of Genghis Khan, whose conquering Golden Horde has cut a swath of devastation. Scotland, in addition, lies under the heel of England. But out of the battle-scarred highlands, a hero will rise . . .
 
Demon Sword: Young Toby Strangerson, a half-English bastard reared by a witchwife, wants only to shed his hated Sassenach blood and free his beloved highlands. As the outlaw Longdirk, Toby wields a sword that can cut down men like stalks of corn. But stranger winds are swirling across the lochs—eldritch winds that are ridden by hobs and wisps and demons. The enemy Sassenach king is also a sorcerer. His demon soul needs a body, and his Black Arts can free Europe from the Khan’s Golden Horde.
 
Demon Rider: Longdirk has become possessed by a hob, a murderous demon spirit, as amoral as a child, neither inherently good nor evil. Toby wants his freedom—and the spirit of the tyrant-demon Nevil, ensorcelled in amethyst, can be traded for the exorcism of the hob. In order to make the exchange, though, Toby and his ally Hamish must face the hexer Oreste on his own ground, in the dank and fetid dungeons of Barcelona, where souls are racked and tortured—and ultimately destroyed on the relentless wheel of the Inquisition.
 
Demon Knight: Longdirk has used gramarye—dark magic—to defeat the Fiend and save Europe from abject slavery, but he has also made himself the most feared and envied man in all of Italy. The hordes are reorganizing and plan to sweep over the Alps once more to retake their lost prize of power and conquest. Toby and his friend Hamish struggle to unite the quarreling city-states into a single, powerful force to resist the invasion, in a world where no ally can be trusted and traitors lurk in every shadow. But there is more at stake than freedom and the destiny of a continent—a woman’s love hangs in the balance . . .
