In the year of our Lord 1141, civil war over England's throne leaves a legacy of violence-and the murder of a knight dear to Brother Cadfael.

An assassination, 2 men's appearance at the abbey, & a mysterious group of thieves. A triple oddity that leads Brother Cadfael to danger & to discovery of a plot gone wrong & one who seeks vengeance for a brutal crime. Will Cadfael be able to prevent not only a murder but a man's soul? Reader beware. ( )

I don't generally like historical fiction, except for the time period covered here, and the location. medieval England. A time of civil war and also myth, my favorite being Robin Hood. Having recently read Nottingham I was reminded to pick up this series which I enjoyed as much as always. ( )

Another satisfying read in the Brother Cadfael series, with more King Stephen/Empress Maud fighting in the background! ( )

They were together in Brother Cadfael's hut in the herbarium, in the afternoon of the twenty-fifth day of May, and the talk was of high matters of state, of kings and empresses, and the unbalanced fortunes that plagued the irreconcilable contenders for thrones.
