Pagan in Exile
# 2 in Pagan Chronicles
Catherine Jinks’s follow-up to PAGAN’S CRUSADE is another tale with special appeal for boys — filled with action, featuring a witty young narrator, and loaded with down-and-dirty details of medieval life.
The year is 1188, and Jerusalem is in the hands of the Infidel. Upstanding Crusaders and their squires–like Lord Roland Roucy de Bram and Pagan Kidrouk–are returning to Europe, hoping to rally more knights to their cause. The sardonic young Pagan expects Lord Roland’s family to be the picture of fortitude and good manners, but he is in for a rude awakening. Brutish and unfeeling, the de Bram clan cares nothing for the Crusades, or indeed for anything outside their neighbourhood in France. Meanwhile, local unrest is brewing. Church authorities are duking it out with the de Brams over a group of “heretics” living nearby. And now Pagan and Roland, sworn to defend Christianity, are left to decide for themselves whom to stand by-and whom to trust.
