"October, 1093. At her mentor's urgent request, Lassair is accompanying Gurdyman across the sea to Spain. But why is he so insistent on embarking on this difficult and dangerous journey just as winter approaches? And why does he seem so afraid? Could there be any connection to the vagrant found lying dead outside his home, a single pearl clutched in his outstretched hand? As the pair reach the remote mountainous regions of northern Spain, Lassair will be tested as never before. Hot on her trail is Jack Chevestrier, the young lawman who loves her. But who is it who's trying to kill him ... and why?"--Publisher's description.

Clare produces another winner in her Aelf Fen series, set in eleventh-century Britain and featuring village-healer Lassair. When Lassair's mentor, Gurdyman, announces that he has an idea for a new venture, she assumes he means a new experiment to further increase her understanding of the mystical world of healing. But Gurdyman has something entirely different in mindâa long sea voyage followed by a dangerous and challenging land journey to the mysterious City of Pearl. Along the way, Gurdyman means to visit the village where his parents died and right a long-ago wrong that has weighed on his mind for decades. But it is the City of Pearlâa rich and beautiful city where Jews, Christians, and Muslims live in harmonyâwhere Lassair will learn the true purpose of the long and dangerous expedition that she and Gurdyman have embarked on. Less a historical mystery and more a genre-blender than the other titles in the series, this magical adventure story, full of joy, danger, and sadness, will draw both Clare's crime-fiction fans as well as fantasy readers.
