Prequel to Ascent of the Fallen, Book I of the Chronicles. Set almost a decade before, Lord Fallondon Breck is a young knight searching for glory and purpose in the Kingdom of Heaven. After campaigns near Jerusalem he is stationed along the pilgrim road in Syria and tasked with an important mission: find and stop an unknown killer crucifying those traveling to Antioch.
Fallondon's company of knights are dispatched to Ghmam, a remote village in the hills near Tishreen. Before he can do anything about his errand, he must face his most challenging trial: winning over the villagers, their proud leader, his resourceful son, and his beautiful daughter. Little does Fallondon know that the spiritual forces of darkness are already set against him.
This prequel novella tells the tale of how crusader knight Lord Fallondon Breck met his love, won his spurs, and faced down evil. It's a blend of Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker-inspired spiritual warfare combined with the action and adventure of Kingdom of Heaven, Robin Hood, and The 13th Warrior. If you enjoy Christian fantasy mixed with military-inspired action and 12th century historical fiction, you'll love this! Join Lord Fallondon Breck and his knights as they challenge evil and seek to recover their most precious reward: their own hearts.

About the Author
Travis A. Chapman is trying his best to be Teddy Roosevelt, Edmond Dantes, and Indiana Jones all at once, a Renaissance man of multiple talents and a lifelong experience collector. In various forms, he's a follower of Jesus, U.S. Naval Academy graduate, submarine officer, engineer, author, blue-water and coastal sailor, hiker, rocker-of-the-Renn-Fest, dog-lover, and loving husband. He's doing his best to enjoy living in the horse-country of Maryland, watching the wind whistle through the trees, and can occasionally be found sailing the Middle River. I love writing clean fantasy and sci-fi influenced by my own experiences in the military and other spheres. I am still mentored by the writings of C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, and hope to provide another voice of inspiration for a wide world. I have several works in progress, including Books II and III of the Chronicles of Outremer, a prequel short story, several other series, and some non-fiction books.
