1587. Two nations are at war. One strives for dominance, the other for survival.

As religious wars blaze over the continent, Britain is protected by her navy. Queen Elizabeth has put down Catholic revolts and ordered the execution of her cousin, Mary Queen of Scots. But war threatens. The mighty Spanish Armada will put Francis Drake’s formidable fleet to the test, and a bloody battle will rage.

Robert Varian, trusted officer in Drake’s navy, guards a secret – one which, if discovered, will cost him his life. He is a Catholic. Varian must decide how to defend his homeland and balance belief with duty to the crown. This is a war that could cost Britain her independence, and Varian his life.
