What a creatively interesting book! It is rare to find truly unique storylines these days so it is an added delight when a book is not only well written but different and refreshing at the same time!

Case in point: Palatina is an immortal fae and follows the pagan gods. Pierre is a devoutly Christian knight. Through the story one learns much of history during the time of the crusades while following the personal spiritual journey of the heroine - all intertwined in a passionate love story! See?

Cons: I thought the character of Lillian was the weak point. She was just that little bit overdone, edging into caricature territory. If she had been a little more subtle, I think she would actually have

Set in the spring of 1096, right before the start of the First Crusade, the wonderfully detailed writing immediately draws the reader into this unusual collision of Pagan and Christian religions.
