[nice clean book, minor age-toning to top page edges, but no significant wear; jacket slightly faded at spine, with minor wear along top and bottom edges, a few itsy-bitsy tears, light browning at edges of jacket flaps]. The author's second historical novel (in what would later be known as "The Tarn Trilogy"), set in 13th-century France. This book re-encounters "Wolf of Foix, the searching young idealist," who is obsessed with avenging the death of his patron -- "an obsession that takes him from brutal warfare to the quiet endurance of the Cathar believers; from the frivolity of the effete to alchemists' dens in Spain and pagan rituals in the caverns of the Pyrenees."
