I own a copy

It’s rare that you read a series where the main character is a saint. Filled to the brim with doubting. With faith. With dialectic thought.

Yeah, yeah, adventure, battles, witch hunts and loss.

What I love about the series is the characterization. Alf, the main character, is a foundling, an Elvin magical thing that doubts the existence of his own soul. Struggles with his faith, and thus his faith is a thing worth having.

Really, the best of all Tarr’s books. The series wanders from Richard the Lion hearts Anglia, to Byzantium’s fourth crusade washed shores to ruined Rome.

A great read for a sink into never was.
