I enjoyed the portrayal of Amandine Du Lac. She is a strong woman in a very precarious situation. But no matter what the Church or others want her to believe, she knows what is true in her heart. The other characters are equally driven and complex. Some of them, like Sampson, are taken out of the pages of history, or like Mordred, from the annals of legend. The plot is good, based on house and family politics. The writing is great, aided by a lot of interesting, complicated, and colorful characters. I look forward to going back and reading the two previous books in this series. I think Mary Anne Yarde loves history and Arthurian legend as much as I do.
