** spoiler alert ** I have mixed feelings about this book.

The cover really has nothing to do with the book contents...I thought it would be 'like' Graceling or Finnkin of the Rock, but it isn't.

I really liked the writing style, character development, all that. Action mixed with dialogue, all was good.

But the end was a real let down. No happy ending, but that's ok. It's just I thought Father Isadore would DO something. Other than his vow to take care of Babylonne, the book didn't really go anywhere with that.

Were the Lords mentioned towards the end real? Did the author just plop these two characters into real history? Not sure.

MAYBE, I should have read the Pagan books, and gotten an idea of things first.
