In John Marco's solid sequel to The Eyes of God (2002), The Devil's Armor, the death of Akeela the Mad, king of Liiria, marks a low point in the fortunes of the fantasy kingdom. Lukien, the Bronze Knight of Liiria who betrayed Akeela, now protects the mountain fortress of Grimhold, deep below which lies an enchanted suit of armor, the creation of a long-dead sorcerer. Will Lukien fall victim to the armor's evil aura?
