Blending the history of the Albigensians-Cathars and the traditions of the tarot, this second volume in the trilogy continues the wry and engaging epic begun in The Last Troubadour. Ramon, the last troubadour, Dame Esclarmonde de Foix, and their companions have escaped Carcassonne and must fight their way through the Phantom Wood to seek sanctuary at Chateau Montségur. They are pursued by Death and his scythe and the soldiers of Pope Innocent. With unexpected humor and rich historical lore, this entertaining saga brings the 13th century and the archetypes of the tarot to life.

Review:

"A rollicking tale with fascinating characters, many based on the archetypes of the tarot. I particularly loved the depth of the characters . . . they could all be read 'dignified' or 'reversed' to use the tarot jargon. Look forward very much to the next books in the trilogy!"  —Kat Black, bestselling creator of The Golden Tarot, on The Last Troubadour



"The novel is thoroughly readable and has more than a few moments of near-brilliance in which Armstrong blends comedy, parody, and adventure in genuinely innovative ways. A writer of abundant talent."  —David Pitt, Booklist, on The Last Troubadour

"Catches up with our thirteenth-century heroes as they continue their mission for truth and honor. This multi-layered history, with characters based on the tarot, uses fantasy and humor to address larger issues of religion and culture."  —In the Hills: A Magazine of Country Living
