Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
From the stronghold of Saladin to the court of the leper king in Jerusalem, Tarr's latest novel (set in the same universe as "The Hound and the Falcon" trilogy) captures the intensity and the sensuality, as well as the stark reality, of the medieval world. This compelling work from an excellent historical fantasist is highly recommended.

    Highly recommend - some of her best early work

    Elves, Sidhe, Immortals - however you name them, Judith Tarr spins an excellent tale with them at the center. Historical allusions from the times of the Crusades, the lives of Muslims and Christians intertwine. Throw in a dash of magic, an incredibly beautiful afrit assassin, and an unearthly prince of the sidhe, and an tumultuous yet entirely engaging story of love, war and intolerance emerges.
