This was a wonderfully imaginitive historical thriller. I would say that the whole book is built around the premise "In times of trouble the only one who can speak the truth is the Jester." It's set in the times of the crusades when religious persecution and rule is widespread. The stripped down story is old and archetypal...the institution takes the protagonists family away from him and he goes on a journey for revenge to recover what he's lost. However the gem of this story is not the story itself, but the storytelling. I thouroghly enjoyed this page-turner. It's too bad I traded it to some guy on a train in Europe...
