Alys Clare divides her time between Tonbridge, England-in the area where ""Tavern in the Morning"" is set--and her ancient stone cottage in Brittany. The author of two previous Hawkenlye mysteries, ""Fortune Like the Moon"" and ""Ashes of the Elements,"" she has also studied archaeology at the University of Kent at Canterbury.
*Starred Review* Clare’s latest offering in her Hawkenlye series is an enthralling blend of medieval mystery, historical fiction, fantasy, romance, and adventure that will appeal to a wide range of fans. Following the tragic and untimely death of King Richard in 1199, his mother, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, summons Abbess Helewise of Hawkenlye and Sir Josse d’Acquin to France. Eleanor wishes to build a commemorative chapel on the grounds of Hawkenlye and asks the abbess to oversee its construction. But the task she sets for Sir Josse is much more difficult. The queen has heard reports that her now-dead son was involved with the Knights of Arcturus, a group of evil men who carry out unspeakable deeds. She naturally hopes her son, the king, is innocent, and she commands Sir Josse to discover the truth. His task will be dangerous—the Knights are some of the wealthiest, most influential men in France, and one misstep by Josse could be disastrous. Meanwhile, Josse’s lover, Joanna, is caught up in her own dangerous mission. This is a skilfully plotted, delightfully written genre-bender with appealing characters, bold adventure, and dark intrigue. Top-notch! --Emily Melton
