    However, one needn't be a history buff to follow and appreciate the story and characters. There's a classic enmity between Charles Lord and Montglave that not only motivates the characters but drives the story forward. Like Chantler's artwork, there's a certain simplicity to the good-guys-versus-bad-guys plot that's appealing, but the creator uses that simple conflict as a foundation for a more complex structure. He divides the characters into smaller factions, making for multiple plotlines and character threads that only converge in a climactic battle scene. Chantler also offers up a couple of interesting twists that took me off guard. The snivelling nephew proves to be made of sterner stuff than the author led us to believe, and he also adds a new dynamic to the relationship between Charles Lord and Simon that really brings a thematic conflict to a brutal conclusion.
