Pagan's Scribe: Book Four in the Pagan Chronicles
When will they come? What will they do?
What does an army look like, encamped around a city?
I've read so much, but I just can't imagine it.
Languedoc in 1209 is a dangerous place. When the delicate, bookish Isidore becomes scribe to Pagan Kidrouk, Archdeacon of Carcassonne, he is plunged into the real world - Pagan's world, and that of his beloved Lord Roland, and Roland's enigmatic older brother, Lord Jordan. But this is the year in which papal forces from the north begin their bloody crusade against the Cathar heretics. And the battle line is moving closer to Carcassonne ...
Book Four in the Pagan Chronicles, Pagan's Scribe is another action-packed saga of the savvy and sarcastic Pagan Kidrouk.
'Rich in authentic detail, humor, grief, and deep insight into the life of the mind as well as the heart, this makes a fitting close to a high-water mark in historical fiction.' -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
