The Legacy and the Lion, Elaine Jemmett

A primitive future. A mysterious master. A plot to kill the king.

For Patrick Bell, having an ancestor who helped found a kingdom should have been a great introduction, instead, it could get him killed!

The future is a primitive place where horses ply the roads and the Ancients are feared and despised. Bred as a soldier and born in a colony of intellectuals, the death of his family leaves Patrick belonging nowhere. He follows his ancestor to the kingdom of Yusay, but it turns out that ancestor is not just remembered, he is worshipped.

Patrick wins the powerful post of Master of Guards, but he is far from safe. He must navigate a new society, where political and personal enemies abound. When Patrick is implicated in a plot to murder the king, his life is on the line . . .
