The Divine Sacrifice is a tale of murder, religious and political intrigue, loyalty, and human endurance in the setting of Arthurian legends. Hays manages to successfully weave a page-turning mystery with a well known literature world, simultaneously staying true to the genre and telling an original story. It took me a while to relate to and understand the characters but once their layers began to peel back they developed into multi-dimensional figures. I was particularly fond of the way Patrick developed through the story and his relationship with the hero, Malgwyn. Subtle romance, and deep intrigue kept the story interesting while the mystery kept me wondering, and I was ultimately surprised at how the plot unfolded.
