Overview

Many years have passed since the Occitanian knights fought a courageous battle to keep the Blue Flame - sparked at Christs cricifixion and kept burning for centuries - from falling into the wrong hands. Parsifal, young son of the knight Bernard, escaped with the flame and has continued the mission to find its true keeper. His path intertwines with Raimon, son of a Cathar weaver, and Yolanda, daughter of the Catholic Count, who are falling in love. But the righteous crusades begin, setting boy against girl, family against family, neighbour against neighbour, the south against the north. The tumult rises to a roaring peak when the Inquisitors arrive to slaughter the heretics and possess the Blue Flame.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Grant's nuanced, thought-provoking look at the religious conflicts they face will resonate today... there is no lack of action, suspense, or romance here as Raimon and Yolanda struggle to save each other. A truly harrowing escape from a burning death and a heartbreaking separation will lead readers eagerly into the next book in the Perfect Fire trilogy.” —Booklist (Starred Review)

“Grant knows how to write a love story with subtlety and naturalness. . . She also handles political calculations and spiritual ones with aplomb. . . Descriptions as rich as the blue of the flame enliven the writing throughout.” —Horn Book
