By Michele Doucette on February 25, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
Long have I been drawn to the medieval time period (1066-1485). In the course of my own research writing, so, too, have I been drawn to the Cathars; the peaceable Christian people as described within this work. Mary Mageau's choice of words, both descriptive and cleverly orchestrated, allowed me to experience an amazingly rich vision, based on the true historical setting referenced in Vanguished.

It is here that the reader will experience life at Carcassonne, in the Languedoc; the walled city built around the home of Raymond Roger Trencavel, Viscount of Carcassonne. So, too, will you meet the families of Gerard LaRousse, master stone mason and builder, and Luc Dupart, master carpenter and son-in-law; experiencing their lives on a daily basis; likewise for both Alard, scribe, troubadour and cousin of Raymond Roger, and his mother, the Lady Blanche l'Esperon. Of course, one cannot forget the Perfecti Oda, Cathar herbalist of Languedoc.

Sympathetic to the Cathar cause, Raymond Roger Trencavel was Viscount of Béziers as well as Carcassonne; as such, his cities were deliberately targeted by the Crusaders, given that the Count of Toulouse had joined the Crusade, thereby gaining immunity for his own lands.

The fiery fate of Béziers, on July 22, 1209, was a horrific one; next came the beautiful walled city of Carcassonne, besieged from August 1 to August 15, 1209. Knowing that it would be needed as a base of operations, it was not put to the torch, for the lesson taken from Béziers had been that massacres risked the total destruction of the city, including the loss of all loot by fire. In keeping, Arnaud Amaury, the papal legate, wrote to the pope, Innocent III, to explain why, on this occasion, no one had been killed.
