    1. Alfred is a monk of St. Ruan’s Abbey- devoted to his Brothers and his God, a scholar of rare talent, and very much more than a man. A foundling, he was taken in and raised by the Abbey as one of their own, and while his colleagues have grown to old men, he remains no more than a youth.The quiet Abbey life that Alfred clings to is pulled away from him as he is sent out to the world, carrying a message of violence to the Richard Coeur de Leon. Once out of the Abbey’s comforting walls, Alfred c [...]

    2. Man, I loved this series. Not every book is equally awesome, but the overall look at Europe in the time of the Crusades, the Church, Rome vs the Byzantine empire, the Church's heavy engagement in politics, the twisted use of doctrine and scripture to persecute those who don't fall in line, etc. is FASCINATING. It's like the Spanish Inquisition, but slightly different century. When Yale PhD's write historically-based fantasy Just wow. As the final book in the trilogy we know bad thing [...]

    3. Gorgeously written but sad as all get out. Tarr's writing reminds me of Patricia McKillip's, but I prefer McKillip's magic-making and its joy to the real-world loss and strife of Tarr's semi-historical novels. Still, for folks with a higher angst tolerance, this is a very good book.

    4. Meh. The writing is delightful, as always, but I found myself disliking Alf immensely.I really didn't like how good Alf is - a fact that good people acknowledge. (The antagonists are all biased against Alf for not being human, rather than any personality defect, so there is no hint of Alf's poor character from that direction). Alf inherently behaves like a Christian (although this is not stated) - he turns the other cheek, does his best to hold his temper, forgives his enemies and recognises the [...]

    5. I know I read this near the time it was originally published, so the details are a little fuzzy in my mind this many years later. I remember that I really liked the series. I don't think I own the series anymore, so I'll look in the library for it. (This was decades before there were e-readers, and I had the books in hardcover.)

    6. These were read at an awesome time in my life - was going for my MLS, working as a receptionist for an unopened facility (meaning I received no one!) so all I did all day was sit and read. Yes, essentially I was getting paid to sit and read. I read over 100 books that year. Why can't I get that gig now???????

    7. Great endingWith reluctance,I finished this.All the ends tied up,and lives going on.The characters still very much in my mind,thanks for a good read.
