Another beautifully researched, masterfully written historical fantasy from Tarr, a sequel to Devil's Bargain [BKL O 1 02], in which England's Richard the Lionheart strove to take Jerusalem in the name of Christendom. Now Jerusalem's king, Richard needs to go home when Queen Eleanor writes that she can no longer keep his brother Henry and his ambition to replace Richard "contained." Will the realm survive? For though Henry is no weakling, he isn't Richard. Meanwhile, Richard's illegitimate half sister, Sioned, recently married to an infidel sultan and possessed of the Fairy Sight of the ancient Welsh through one strand of her lineage and the devil's brood of Anjou through another, is hard pressed in her battles with evil sorcerer Sinan, who once endangered Richard's soul. As the queen of Aquitaine adds her strategizing to the plot, Tarr's compelling mixture of magic, myth, and history becomes a regular page-turner and reason to hope for a further sequel. Whitney Scott
