Together, Tizona and Jimena help El Cid wage his battles, until a demon of war takes possession of his body and soul. When woman and blade unite, can they free the legendary hero from the demon's wicked clutches? Or will the shadow of the horrors of war overcome all of them? Perhaps, in the sword's cryptic prophecy, lies a secret that will turn the tables of history, love, and death.
