The world of the Middle Ages was populated with heroes whose feats have captivated multitudes through the centuries. Legends with names like Lancelot, Galahad, Gawain and ... Jamal Walker!?
Jamal toils, unhappily, at Medieval World, a theme park that looks like it has not been renovated, or had customers, since the Dark Ages. After falling into the park's fetid moat, Jamal crawls out into fourteenth century England, a world of knights in shining armor and damsels in distress, not to mention questionable hygiene and really lousy plumbing.
Now a stranger in a very strange land, Jamal falls in with a dissolute knight, a beautiful woman with some very modern ideas, and a rebellion against an evil king. The Middle Ages will never be the same, as Jamal uses twenty-first century street smarts and moves to help his new friends. In return, Jamal gets a lot more than just a history lesson.
