In a Time of Treason, book two of the Tales of Durand, continues the gripping story of Durand Col, a man at the heart of a nation divided in David Keck's acclaimed and gritty epic fantasy.

Fighting under the banner of Lord Lamoric, Durand and his companions have thwarted a mad duke's ambition and saved the crown, but their victory has brought them scars, empty purses, and little else. The fragile peace they forged with their sacrifices cannot hold. Too many barons have plotted against the king, driving him to vengeful madness, sending the kingdom into chaos.

Can Durand's loyalties and the land of his birth survive the forces that threaten to tear them asunder during a time of treason?
