Not a Saint Germain novel, it still has some of the same themes: how to act rationally in an irrational time, honor, alchemy, creating a community of caring. Its primary characters are a discharged Polish Captain Arkady fighting the Turks in Hungary in 1524 who buys a beautiful blind Indian-Tibetan- Chinese – I was unclear -- slave Suratta who is able to fight her enemies in shared visions during tantric sex with her champion Arkady. They travel from Hungary to Kyrgyztan and perhaps on to China, according to the map in the book and the map on my wall, to battle the bad guy who took her sight and killed everyone in her family. It’s a good and evil quest book, but it’s different, too.
