(From the publisher):
The wily Eleanor of Aquitaine, queen of France and then of England, sends her former ward, Ala´s, the sister of the king of France, to retrieve a cache of letters hidden in Canterbury Cathedral. Letters that, in the wrong hands, could bring down the English king. In return, Eleanor promises to reveal a long-held and dangerous secret involving Ala´s—a bargain the French princess is powerless to resist.
Before Ala´s can complete her mission, she is abducted, an event that sets in motion a dangerous plot. It will require all of Ala´s's considerable strengths, along with help from the very intriguing leader of the Knights Templar, to unravel dark secrets, unmask evil villains, and escape with her life.
