Description

Many years have passed since the Occitanian knights killed Richard the Lionheart in a courageous battle to keep the Blue Flame--sparked at the moment of Christ’s death--from falling into the wrong hands. Now it is in danger once again, as enemies from the north draw near. In the midst of this looming battle, lifelong friends Raimon, son of a Cathar weaver, and Yolanda, daughter of a Catholic Count, are falling in love. But a new religious crusade is about to begin, setting boy against girl, family against family, neighbor against neighbor, south against north. Though many seek to possess the Blue Flame, only one person is destined to wield its power to save the people and the sovereignty of the Occitan.




About the Author
K. M. Grant grew up in Lancashire, England, where she adopted a horse named Miss Muffet when she was 14 years old, a horse who later inspired the character of Hosanna. She and her older sisters used to stay up late devising stories to entertain each other. That, and K. M.'s extraordinary family history (one of her ancestors was the last in England to be drawn and quartered!), fueled her storytelling. She lives in Glascow, Scotland, with her husband and children where she works as a journalist and a broadcaster.
