The tale transports us to 10th century Spain, where diverse religions and cultures sometimes coexist and sometimes conflict. The story take the readers to the depths of despair and destruction to the heights of redemption and justice. It shows the devastation of vengeance and the power of love.
Knauss’ writing gets us involved with her characters, despite their extremely bloody behaviour. Her background in Medieval Spanish Literature gives not just authenticity to the story that she draws from a poem of the same name, but also puts us into the time, place and social mores so that we see the action from the point of view of someone of that era. She never looks down on her characters from a 21st Century point of view. Though the action is at times cinematic, her descriptions are convincing because they come from a familiarity with Spain both then and now, not from Hollywood-ized swords-and-armour epics.
This is historic novel writing that makes the time, place and characters real — as they were.
