Summary :

Brother Alfred has very fair skin and great beauty. Now, as he nears his 60th year as a monk with little sign of age, he is viewed suspicously by many as one of the soulless Faerie folk. Then one of the elves stumbles into the abbey, slmost dead, and he and Alfred must stop a war that may destroy Richard Lionheart and Wales, as well. And Alfred finally encounters his own people, and finds his destiny.

  • "It is an exciting tale, well told, with a great deal of originality. Readers will find themselves looking forward impatiently to the author's next." Poul Anderson
  • "A fantasy in which it is understood that good and evil are not arbitrary forces byt things people do, that the ultimate battlefields are the mind and the heart; in which the Fair Folk are not misty emblems of lost better days, but characters as real as the humans who live alongside them. An adventure with open eyes and an alert mind." John M. Ford
