Glasscastle University--on the surface, one of the most peaceful places in England. But underneath, its magic is ancient and dangerous… American Samuel Lambert, sharpshooter, adventurer, late of the Wyoming plains and Kiowa Bob's Wild West Show, has been invited to Glasscastle University in England to contribute his phenomenally accurate shooting eye to the top secret Agincourt Project.
