Heat shimmers on the Andalusian frontier. Apparitions of saints manifest amid treachery and tragedy. War drums pound, echoing up the valleys where Moor and Mozarab farmers and Berber mercenaries stand ready to resist the Christian invaders. The starving armies of Castile and Aragon ar... e unable to find a path into Andalusia. The future of Europe is at stake, driven by the hope that old-fashioned honor-paratge-can defeat evil ambition. Meanwhile, Tomas is spying deep in Andalusia for Pedro of Aragon. Isabella of Valeros and a confraternity of Occitan knights gallop into a trap set by the Crux Lunata to destroy Pedro. What's crucial for victory and safety? A djinni. A Celtic singer of troubadours' songs. A resurrected noble woman from the Pyrenees. A monk, accidentally turned renegade. A mercenary spreading lies in Al-Andalus. A Good heretic who just wants to go home. Song of Valeros, Book 4 in the Accidental Heretic series, follows history into the heart of the Reconquista in 1212. Bone-mend and Salt, Book 1, begins this epic adventure, just after French invaders burned Beziers. Trebuchets in the Garden, Book 2, plunges Tomas, Isabella, and their friends into the siege of Minerve. Crux Lunata, Book 3, journeys into the spice-and-intrigue world of southern Europe, where young warriors from Valeros set off to fight for honor in fabled Andalusia, but instead find treachery and surprising new friendships. The text includes maps and a glossary of Occitan and historical terms.
