Brand new. Number Seven in the Conrad Series.This time, Conrad goes on vacation and sees parts of the world he never imagined when he is taken captive by the Twaregs. Of course, he escapes and leads his armies on a crusade that he did not want to fight. 120,000 words and 230 pages of true old fashioned Conrad Stargard. Some people go to dude ranches or on cruises. Conrad's vacations look a little more like the Second Crusade.
