This is a story of light, life and love.
At the end of the Ninth Century, the armies of Islam, Christianity
and the Vikings clashed at the insignificant village of Hendaye, France
setting off a chain of events beyond the control of any of them.
It should be understood at the outset that dragons are not
fire breathing dinosaurs. They are rare and elusive trans-dimensional creatures
that come into our world from the dimension of dark matter and dark energy.
They tend to live for many centuries, may be extremely intelligent, are
very formidable when provoked, and because of their trans-dimensional nature,
often exhibit behavior people unacquainted with quantum physics regard
as being magical.
This is the story of such a dragon. But it is also the story
of Michael, the Boy Prince, who constantly snuck off into the woods or
went fishing instead of going to mass. It is the story of his mother, Catherine,
first the slave of the Moorish Prince Mohammed and later the unwilling
Viking Queen of Hendaye. It is the story of her illegitimate son Rupert,
of her daughter Margret, the most intelligent of the Vikings, and of William
who became the love of Margret's life.
The truth about what actually occurred during the battle of
Hendaye has been greatly distorted by time and is generally lost to history.
This was a period of great change and upheaval. This is the story of that
time: of a corrupt church, a lawless nobility, of forbidden knowledge and,
above all else, it is the story of trying to live an inspired and courageous
life in a very complicated world most of us do not understand very well.
