    Grant develops the plight of her thirteenth-century lovers in this sequel to Blue Flame (2008). After escaping the pyre, Raimon takes to the Occitan caves, but despite holding the mythical Blue Flame, his attempts to unify the Catholic and Cathar rebels fail as the reality of being under siege takes hold. Grant's writing is deeply rooted in history, and her portrayal of the time period is never dry: vivid details bring the setting to life, while a focus on the characters gives the story emotion and drama. Though the conceit of having the land narrate is even more intrusive, this volume will not disappoint.
