In Land of Hope and Glory, Geoffrey Wilson created a world where the Indian Mutiny takes place in a very different England, while magic is a weapon controlled by her foreign oppressors. Now, the rebellion of 1852 has failed and brutal General Vadula governs England. Only a few small bands of English rebels still hold out against the Rajthanan empire. Jack Casey, reluctant hero of the resistance, has survived to live with his daughter in the remote wilds of Shropshire, training young rebels to use the conqueror's magic. But he is gravely ill, with only two months to live ...Then rebel spies bring news of a rogue Indian sorcerer in Scotland. Mahajan has discovered a mysterious power in the uncharted country to the north - a power that could be the legendary Holy Grail. The Rajthanans have already assembled an army to search for Mahajan. Jack has nothing to lose now. He agrees to lead his own men, disguised as porters for the conquerors, on the same gruelling march. They hope to find a weapon that will free England from her oppressors. But they discover something that is beyond what any of them ever expected.
