Freedom - in eleventh-century France, it is a luxury enjoyed by only the King and nobility. For the serf, it is surely worth fighting for. But is it worth dying for? Arriving home disillusioned from the Crusades, Hugh DeLuc discovers his village has been ransacked and his wife abducted. The dark riders came in the dead of night, like devils, wearing no colours but black crosses on their chests. They search for a relic, one worth more than any throne in Europe, and no man can stand in their way. Until Hugh, taking on the role of a jester, is able to infiltrate the enemy's castle where he believes his wife is being held captive. And when a man is fighting for freedom - for his wife, and for everything he holds dear - he will prove a formidable opponent.

I picked this book for my Dad who is a big James Patterson fan but not realising it's a historical adventure rather than a present-day crime thriller & so not my Dad's sort of thing! I, on the other hand, enjoyed it.

Okay, the road the story takes is predictable as are some of the "revelations" (Emilie's "secret" is so obvious!) & of course there is never any doubt that the poor ignorant peasants are going to overthrow the nobles....but it's still a rollicking good yarn finding out how they do! Am encouraged to read some of Patterson's other books now :o)
